Need to paint interior

Hey there everybody

The interior of my Jeep is an ugly shade of tan and the previous owner didn't take too much car in making sure it stayed nice, so I want to convert it to black. I have been reading around and I saw some people use duple-color and some use plasti-dip. What would you recommend for the interior?

Thanks in advance!

I did mine with Duplicolor fabric and vinyl paint. If I had it to do over, I'd use Krylon Fusion. Mine is starting to chip off in some places.

PlastiDip it...I used Krylon Fusion. Prepped it as best as I could and it scuffs and chips really easily. I did it about 6 months ago and it's already worn off in spots. I'm going to redo it in the near future with PlastiDip. The rubber grab handle on the passenger side also WILL NOT cure with standard paint so regardless of what route you go, get a can of PlastiDip for that portion. My grab handle is still holding up very nicely with the PlastiDip.

The worst spots for the Krylon Fusion wearing out are the center console where your seats/seat belt buckles rub against it, the knee bolster on the dash where your feet/legs may rub against it, and the door panels on full doors where the window crank rubs against it.
