Advice needed for simple body protection

Hello all,

I finally have my doors and hardtop off of my 2012 Orange Crush Jeep! The problem is that yesterday it was just myself and my girlfriend taking off the hardtop. Really we should have had a 3rd person to make it easier. So... I put a couple of scratches along the bed of the Jeep. After we got it off I got to thinking... surely there is some kind of armor protection that they make for the bed liner on top? I looked at Quadratec with no luck. Does anyone know of this or what it would be called? I can't imagine it would be very pricey (50.00-100.00 at the most). I would think it would just fit over the lip of the bed in back so that when you put the hard top on/off you dont scratch the paint. Now I have to get touch up paint for a couple of scratches. Of course... every single time I use touch up paint you can tell it has been touched up. So... any advice on either of these things? I'll attach a pic of my Jeep. Hopefully I was clear on the type of armor I am looking for. I just want black since that is the trim and theme I have gone with.
Thanks!

Qtec does have a 'tub liner' that sits on the metal of the top if the lift gate and on the right and left top metal areas. I think it's a simple appliqué to prevent those sorts of things. Let me find the link for you, gotta get the mag from the throne.

I actually just saw that myself. It looks pretty difficult however if you read the instructions. Not sure if I want to mess with that or not... I would hate to have a wrinkle or bubble. Hopefully someone out there has used and reviewed it.
Thanks for the tip though!

If you have a garage, fashion some nice hooks and put them in your Studs... Then buy a hand crank winch and a pulley system and then you're good to go.
