    I'd say paint. Save the bedliner for the inside of the truck. I can't thnk of an advantage gained by bed-liner on the bumper.

    Advantage = rhino liner does not chip like paint. Go for it IMO

    Paint it...simple to touch up. Just rub that new Rhino lined bumper on some rocks and watch your investment come right off. Just paint it and save the cash for the real goods.

    You could go with a POR15 setup and never worry about it again. Just my two cents.

    I like the idea of cheap rattle-can paint jobs on bumpers... they are there to take hits from rocks.. and they will. If they have a rattle can job, ya dont really care if it gets beat up a little... and fixing the "problem" takes like 20 seconds. Not to mention that its cheap....

    If I had a friend that worked at a rhino place (and could getta good price!) I might get some parts of a bumper lined... but not the parts that are likely to hit rocks n stuff...

    Herculiner. Do it yourself for under $100, closer to $50 if you find a good deal or a sale. You'll have enough to do other things. Won't rust and if it gets scraped off or something, you just put more on./forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Find some alkalyd spray paint and use that. It's also known as "implement" paint. It's softer than Rustoleum and doesn't chip as easy as the harder paints like the local brand's spraybomb paint and Kyrlon (which is like kryptonite).
