Haven't done it to my jeep, but I sprayed my friends rims on his mustang with no problems, looks cool!

If no one has pictures... if you want to see what it would look like on your Jeep I could photoshop it for you if you'd like.

So far so good, only place it has chipped since its been on is the grab handle on the dash since that was more of a rubbery texture then a plastic, but on the plastics it seems to hold fine, but I also don't get to do much trailing, I live on long island in Nassau county, not many places around here

Maybe because it isn't designed for that particular use?

This is going to get a LOT of backlash because of the threads and opinions I have read about PlastiDip and bedliner products and their broad usage, but honestly ... if you're using a product for things other than what it is designed for, then you can (and should) expect problems and failures as an end result.

If you want to change your interior color, take the panels off and clean them properly with the proper solvent. Then paint them with a product made for recoloring automotive interiors. These products are very common and are easy to use if the parts to be painted are prepared correctly. And the result lasts for years without any repairs or touch-ups.
