Black Out

Decided to get rid of all of the chrome. I love it. I used bedline on everything. Some things have a coat or two of Plasti Dip just in case I want to remove. I painted my wheels too since they were a gloss black.

Yep, that's definitely a lot of black.

As long as you like it, that's all that matters.

I see you've gone a little sticker/decal crazy too......LOL.

Haha yeah I'm loving the black. Decals are old lol but stay tuned for new custom decals under the door guards. I am also waiting on JBA to send me a new decal with no red just black/white to match theme.

I love it! I've been slowly making my way to do the same thing. I was literally about to post some questions on this same topic...
Mainly if the idea of plasti-dip beneath bedliner would work. What bedliner did you use? Spray on/roll on?

For the emblems: was it easy to pull the plastidip off when the bedliner had set?

Are they paying you for the advertising?

So it's not the easiest to peel off if you bedline on top of the dip. You have to carefully get an Xato knife and get to the Dip but then it simply peels off as normal since that's the original layer on the piece you painted. I didn't use Dip on most of my badges though. I went full black out lol and I'm glad I did because I love it. I will never be going back especially when new custom decals go on.

I used this for bed line. It's very durable and has a textured finish.

No. I am doing it mostly to support the company and for the badass looks. I'll be taking this Jeep to many shows. We have a TON of 4x4 and Jeep shows in New Jersey so any promoting IFS rigs will be worth it.
