I like the look of that Line-X, but does that make it harder to keep clean? (not that that really matter i guess )

I painted my hard top with the krylon flat black. The previous statement is true. No matter what paint you use, it seems to fade after a short while. The secret I found was to allow the paint to dry well, then use ArmorAll to wipe down the top. It too tends to fade after a week or two or after a hard rain, but heck, after about 10 minutes of wiping it down again it's shining like new.

Never use any paint on any jeep not purchased from a autobody supply, or dealer touch up is ok.

I disagree.....the krylon fusion paint I applied to my entire hard top has not faded one bit, and it's been over a year since I painted it. It is good to use on your hard top due to it being able to adhere to flexible surfaces.
The only problem I have experienced is the paint peeled around the windows and around the door frames. But I blame myself for not giving those areas a good enough prep job.
Another thing...if anyone is worried about the outcome of a "do it yourself, rattlecan paint job", then have it done professionally. If you do it yourself, IT'S NOT GOING TO LOOK LIKE A PROFESSIONAL, FACTORY PAINT JOB. (it's coming from a rattlecan) But, you can make it look decent enough to not really notice the flaws, and to give yourself a sense of accomplishment.
If you will wait until your jeep is paid for, then it's easier to not really care about any subtle mistakes. My jeep is paid for, therefore, I don't really care that the paint peeled around the windows and door frame opening and that you can see the tan color it used to be. I plan on painting it when it comes out of the barn and goes back on the jeep.
