Jeep bumpers

I want to keep my stock bumpers. One reason because its light and second because I already bought an expensive brush guard that is not compatible with most aftermarket bumpers. So, my idea is to bed line the bumpers and flares. Any suggestions or opinions on that?

bedlining the non-Sahara/Rubicon flares on a TJ is one of the best aesthetic and functional mods you can do for the money.

As for the bumper, running stock bumpers without milkjugs is a good idea if you don't need the extra recovery points offered by aftermarket bumpers. I'd only bedline them if they're rusty or faded, though.

I'm currently running powdercoated aftermarket bumpers front and rear. Rear bumper has a hitch that I use as a recovery point and the front bumper has a bull bar, power steering skid plate, light mounts, a tow hitch and 2 D-Rings, but the trade off is it weighs like 90lbs. Combined with the weight of my winch and mounting hardware, my front end is sagging about an inch. Nothing spacers won't fix, but for now it looks a little off if you really take a close look.

Thanks. How about as far as bed line brand? Paint on or spray on?

you can get better texture some times out of the spray cans, farther you hold it away the more texture it gives
