I used Rustoleum Bedliner that I purchased at Home Depot. 4 cans in total provided 2 coats. I also used some acetone to clean up any dirt/grime before on the area before sprayed.

Drying time was relatively quick. After an hour in the sun the material was tacky. I think total time for the entire project from paint to install was about 6 hours.

Initially, I did it for cosmetic reasons. However, the benefits I've noticed include the following:
- more grip when removing panels
- an increase in sound dampening (just took off soft top from summer use, so this may be only my inner ear dyno)

Haven't noticed any insulation benefits regarding temperature...

Did not sand the inner surface, just used acetone to clean any foreign material. I'm now hoping that the bed lining material is so sticky that no sanding was required. Time will tell, and it seems like that answer will have to wait for the end of fall.

Any use of bedliner will provide more insulation - sound, temp, etc. Don't know if that was the OP's goal - I know I'm going to do mine eventually just cuz I don't like the white - but those "benefits" come with it regardless.

I'll have to research this project; I'm curious if there was any sanding/prep cuz that inside seems so slick. I wonder how well the bedliner will hold/maintain over time.

RB-10rubicon It looks so much better black in my opinion .the rustoleum bedliner stuff is awesome ive sprayed my light covers also the stuff holds up very well. Id did all that work to it and know im trying to sell it. The bedliner paint gives you a nice grip when your takeing out the panels. Only thing that i didnt remove when painting was the wiper motor.

Landonk Dang that looks great. May have to try that.

Nice work as well. How do you like it?

I was a little worried as my spray paint skills are not the best, but the product was very forgiving.

How many cans did it take?
1. I used the blue painters tape excessively on all the hardware. Including the nuts that the freedom panel bolts use. Truth be told I was nervous, but it turned out well. The blue tape easily pulled off. I did get nervous when the freedom panels did not fit back properly. I thought the paint may have messed up the fit tolerance by adding 0.003mm of bed lining material... LOL, I forgot to take the tape off the nuts.

2. Yes, there were white spots when I put the top on. Mostly at the flange that bolts to the body along the quarter panel. The second spot was along the lower edge of the side glass. When I saw these I took the top off and quickly resprayed the areas. There were no white marks or scratches caused by installing the top, rather, the white spots were caused by novice painting skills.

3. 4 cans in total provided 2 coats. I need to pick up one more can to have as a backup. I used Rustoleum Bedliner that I purchased at Home Depot. I also used some acetone on the area to be painted.
