Plasti Dip vs Bedliner

I've done some searching, but couldn't find this specific thread. So, if this has already been addressed, my apologies.

Which holds up better or do you prefer.....plasti dip or the aerosol spray in bedliner (the kind in a can).

Thanks!

Looking to do my bumpers, tire carrier, and mirrors on my YJ.

For me, bedliner all the way. From my understanding, Plastidip is considered by many as temporary, because it can be peeled off completely. I've read here by some that scratches and gouges in the plastidip don't cover up with additional spray applications as well as bedliner.

different uses in my opinion. I bedlined my bumpers and plastidipped my fenders, grill, side mirrors, door handles, license plate holders. I personally hate the look of bedlined fenders. They have all held up fine. Been about 5 months now.

ZEP, sounds like a good idea, think that may be the route I will try. Thanks! And when you say 'fenders' do you mean the entire metal fender or just the flares? I'm thinking about just doing the flares. Thanks!

My main concern is are either UV permanent? Or, rather, are painting the bumpers, the fender flares, and all the other exterior components (side mirrors, door handle, and rims) going to be a annual event due to fading and what not?
