Bed liner is MUCH MUCH more durable than plasti dip. It will also fade a lot slower, and protect better as well.

On the other hand you can peel plasti dip off, so if you don't like it you can just remove it. Good luck with peeling bed liner off lol

I did the rims, fenders and bumpers with the Duplicolor Bed Armor on my JK and it lasted great for over 6 years until I sold it and it looked great and barely faded easy to touch up scrapes too by just dabbing more into the scrapes. Just make sure you clean and scrub really good before applying. It doesn't compare to powder coating on rims but it's cheap and you can do it in a weekend. Clean and scrub or it will peel under pressure washing.

I love the looking bed liner on my exterior trim pieces. I did my mirrors, and smaller trim pieces. The only con is that if you have a soft cloth to clean your jeep with, the fabrics will get caught on the Bedliner. Aside from this, Bedliner beats plasti dip. I did my wheels in plastidip a year ago, and it is starting to fade already.
Cheers!

Yes primarily. But, you can buy spray cans of it and use it for virtually anything. Really common on plastic trim that fades from sunlight, or to cover up bare metal that rust can get at.

My front winch bumper was sprayed with Dupli-color truck bed liner. I like the rugged feel and is way cheaper than powder coating. It's only been on a month, so not sure how long it will last until it needs a touch-up. Will be spraying my rear bumper/tire carrier with the same to match once its done.

I really recommend going with Chassis Saver (almost identical to POR-15). It costs maybe $40 to do yourself and you can end up with permanent and amazing results. I did mine over a year ago and it still looks amazing. Before I used Chassis Saver, I used Rustoleum's Rubberized paint and it didn't last longer then the tank of gas I had at the time...





I also made a video on my year after review of Chassis Saver! Click below!

One other thing that I want to add is that not many bed liner or rubberized coatings are UV resistant at all, so fading is inevitable. Check out a product like Monstaliner which is 100% UV protected and guaranteed to last.
