The guy I boight the jeep from started painting the outside with spray on bed liner and he did not get to far with it and it does not look good at all. So I was trying to find ways to paint it myself. I was just thinking that plasti dip would be quick and easy.

buy the rustoleum bedliner you need one gallon for the exterior and it will look better than plastidip.

I thought about that but the only good thing about the plasti dip is that if I dont like it I can peel it off. But I just might try them both out before I start painting it

Wouldn't it's ability to peel off whenever you want be a bad thing?

You really have to pick at it for it to come off unless you just put a couple of light coats on

Just the exterior? Or was that interior too? Just curious cause I don't think I've heard of a line x quote that high yet for just one or the other.

So I tried the plasti dip out and I did not like it at all I peeled it right off. Definitely a waste of money but it was only $7 so I'm ok with that.

Keep the plastidip, it's real good for doing a specific thing like wheels or grille, just not the whole thing in my opinion

I used plastidip on the full cage I just put in. It holds up really well, I even considered doing the tub but don't feel it is durable enough for everyday foot traffic inside the vehicle. I have a number of friends who have dipped whole cars and have had very good success. It seems to hold up extremely well on wheels, I've seen it last for over a year even through winters and carwashes. Surface MUST be prepped very well too, I use large alcohol towels to final clean everything prior to spraying.

It was just the exterior and It might not be in your area but it's great

I wouldnt waste my time plasti dippin the tub, it will peel. I have to post some pics of what i did, plasti a bunch of spots on the jeep. It has held up well in most spots, only spot that is doesnt seem to hold up is the lower door jams where people drag there feet over when getting in and out of jeep.
