The hinges on the tailgate. They have started peeling and have become quite unsightly. Still function flawlessly which i guess is why i'm not even remotely interested in purchasing replacements. Thinking of bedlining these.

Fender Flares, I feel like just about everyone does this looking for any tips or tricks to make them really last as far as chipping or peeling goes.

This door handle is rusting the other one is not. Not quite sure what gives but i'd definitely be interested in doing something about this. Rust-oleum or bed-liner or what have you.

Feel free to weigh in on any of this i'd also like to do my door hinges, end caps to my bumpers, the bumpers themselves, and the crossbar that sits behind the grill and in front of my radiator (might need temp paint for that).

I wouldnt recommend bed lining the door handles cause it has a rough texture like sandpaper. Just rustoleum paint would work. Plastidip is good and removable if you want to remove it.

You probably finished this ages ago but I would totally recommend bed lining the handles The texture isn't quite as rough as sandpaper its more just grippy. I just did mine like 3 weeks ago and I am VERY pleased with the result. But here is a warning that stuff is addictive I am now constantly looking for stuff to spray down with some bedliner!!

Here is the finished product!

I'm gonna steal your idea to bed line the tailgate hinges. My top one has almost completely flaked of the paint on the side attached to the tub.

Did you remove the door handles from the door or did you mask everything off and spray while still attached? I am trying to weigh the benefits of the time involved in removing them vs. leaving them on and spraying.

If you just masked them off, how large of an area did you protect around? Also how many coats did they take?

I love the look especially with how bad mine look right now.

Handles

After looking at the sticky thread on the TJ page about removing the door handles i decided that i was just going to tape em' off. I cover about 2.5 feet in each direction but i have heard that you only need to do 10 inches as bedliner is different than spray paint. I just sanded them down ( doesnt have to be perfect, I focused mostly on the rust) and painted them with even strokies and i would say that i did 3 layers. My tips for you are to make sure your paper is thick enough because you will be doing 3+ coats it can soak through and pull the tape off while they are still wet, in case some leaks under it will just wipe off!

Good luck

For your fender flares and plastic bumper ends (aka milkjugs), use Krylon Fusion in Satin Black.

Which brand of bedliner did you use? I recently bedlined my sub box in the back and am super happy with how it looks. I was just surprised it took an entire can! I am also looking to do my handles as they look as ugly as everyone else's.

Rubberized undercoating works real well for anything you are considering bedlining....it's not as textured as a real bed liner is. SEM makes an excellent one though I believe Duplicolor has one that should be easy to find...
