It totally changes the front of a jeep. Sounds kinda lame, but it really does. This is the "roll in bedliner" I simply took a sponge and made about 6 coats on it. Took a long time but its worth it. Also there are 2 allen wrench screws, and one phillips screw in each headlight bezel. The allen wrench ones are so cheesy, I left them out and am buying all black screws at Ace hardware tomorrow.

Thanks Shane! That looks great. I have the stock Sahara fenders that are painted the body color and I HATE it. So instead of replacing them with expensive ones I think I am just going to do this.

I used the rustoleum rattle can bedliner. No problems at all. Fairly cheap too! I'd put a pic up but I haven't taken any... And now I'm asking myself why I haven't. Perhaps tomorrow. But yea worked well for me and looks good. Matches my bumper too.

There should actually be 3 T15 torx head screws in each bezel.
That looks really good!
I painted mine right after buying my Jeep, and love it black.
I'm thinking about using a bedliner on my entire grill - tons of rock chips. I may try it on the headlight bezels when I do, so they'll match.

Plasti-Dip is what i use!

So weird!!! I just did mine last night.. not with bedliner, but with Plasti-Dip. I use this stuff alot! Very easy to remove if you don't want it anymore, or just need to refinish! Can't beat it for $6

Available at Home Depot

Im doing my tub in bed liner soon as well as my rockers (sanding filling the holes from the factory fenders then lining the space below the door up) next week and I wanna do my faded rear flares too but I was wondering how hard this stuff is to take off if I dont like it? Id imagine it would be pretty tough. Im only concerned about the rear flares, but I think Ill like it.

One of my buddies did his flares and mirrors using Plastikote spray bedliner and it looks really good. The grit is very fine, so you can't tell it's bedliner until you get right up on it, but even then it looks good

Thanks. It's a Hanson, picked it up second hand and had it powder coated. Still haven't made up my mind on a winch though. I've started trimming the jeep out in stainless but don't have any recent pics. I'll work on it. New to all this stuff. Thanks again.
