Too much bedliner?

I spent all day Sunday masking, sanding and applying more bedliner to Regina. I had already done the rocker panels and fender flares with Rustoleum's version of the product. I couldn't stand the look of the typical cracking paint on the hood from it flexing and got several significant chips while driving cross country a few weeks ago, so I figured bedliner would be the best fix. As more paint blemishes occur, I'll treat them the same. Eventually I'll sandblast the entire thing and have either line-x or rhino cover it all...still might do Monstaliner myself. Next items will be windshield hinges, door and tailgate hinges and insets on doors where the handles are. What's everyone think? Am I getting carried away?

Looks good man! I've been toying with Plasti-Dip on the body of mine just to see if I like the black look on certain spots. I have a blue TJ by the way. I like it so far. So I'm considering going a more permanant route and using bedliner. Any tips you can give me from the experience? I've already used bedliner to make my fender flares look better.

I think it looks good... Im finding that the spray on stuff really doesn't hold up that well though. Unless the primer I used is no good it seems to chip off pretty easy. I hope your having better luck.

Definitely looks good, I'm not really a fan of bedlining the front of the fenders though...

I agree with the message above. It's your Jeep and Jeep wranglers are made to be
modified to the owners standards or looks. That’s what makes Jeeps cool and fun for hobbies related to Jeep wranglers. I actually want to put bed liner inside the jeep to protect the floor inside. Really Cool….

@blsport7- its holding up like a champ. I do mostly trail riding but live on a gravel road too, so it has seen its fair share of rocks, branches and dirt. So far no scratches after almost a year. The color is holding up well too. I didn't prime it at all, just sanded with 60 grit and smoothed with 80 and 100. I made sure I got through the clear coat and a decent scuff in the paint. I've been very pleased with it so far. Only recommendation would be to NOT use frog tape. The good ole blue stuff from 3m worked great, frog tape didn't stick worth a sh!t. Thanks for the feedback errbody, I'll post more pics as more is painted.

@InvertChaos. Very nice! Looks bullet proof. My plans are to do my entire ext/int but I'm gonna do it slowly as the paint ages. I would like to find a set of Rubicon wheels to bedline too.

The Jeep looks great Bulldog. I am thinking about re-doing the black accents on mine with bedliner.

I like the hood and the front of the fenders. I really like the way you outlined the front lip of the hood like a bug guard. The hood raised area looks as good as a set of lovers. I am not a big fan of the black grill but with your scheme it works and I am not sure the rest would look as good without it being painted, plus if you like it then who cares what I think.

The only really bad part I can see is the front tag.

Honestly I think he hood is a little much. But not that bad since your covering bad paint. Everything else looks bad ass but it's your rig do what makes you happy with it.
