anyone ever put bedliner (line-x, rhino liner, etc) on their rock sliders?

i just bought some all pro rock sliders. i just purchased my first FJ (2007 manual) and am planning on installing these rock sliders after i paint them. i was talking with my brother about them tonight and he instantly recommended putting some sort of truck bed liner on them just to get some grip when stepping up on them.

i am not going to really have my FJ on rocks getting extreme (for now). i thought it was a pretty good idea to protect the rock sliders. i am thinking of possibly buying and coating the rock sliders myself so if they get chipped up a little i plan on repairing them myself.

does anyone have any helpful advice on possibly painting the sliders with bedliner? has anyone seen this done before? any pics would be awesome to see!

It looks good but the first scratch that goes thru the liner will be heck to repair. I would suggest to just paint them and then go by the local skate board shop and get some grip tape for traction on the topside. Will make repairs a lot easier and cheaper.

Sliders are made to take a serious beating...way beyond the strength of ANY coating including industrial strength powder coating. The key to looking good (as you already said) is to paint them yourself and keep your touch up kit handy.

My touch up kit includes black satin rustoleum paint, 200 grit sandpaper, a rag, and a newspaper.

I looked long and hard at non-skid alternatives and ended using nothing because I knew they would all turn to crap sooner or later. In the end I am very happy I did nothing because they are not all that slippery to begin with. I stand on my sliders all the time as do my kids, and for whatever reason, nobody has ever slipped on them. (and i mean NEVER).

One of the few times in my life that doing nothing was exactly the right thing to do. Put them on and give it some time...my guess is you will be happy you punted on the non-skid.

I put the rustoleum bedliner on mine after they rusted through the powdercoat. I sanded and cleaned and hit with that and have loved it, no rust and the touch up is just as easy as paint. I also did my bandi mount that rusted every year. It has been two years now and no rust whatsoever. I would do it again in a second.

Never heard of that stuff...learn something new every day. So the touch-ups don't pile up on themselves and/or get gunky or anything?

i linex'd my allpro's too. they came out great and trail pretty often, and have only scratched them once. I had the line-x guy touch them up when i got my roof done.

If you aren't going to be doing straight rock crawling, i think its a good idea. My GF loves them too when its wet out, as it provided a pretty good amount of grip.

Nope you cant een tell where the touch up is. It is a bit thiner than line X or rhino lining. Hell I use it a bunch. I have a 328i that the stick shift leather was torn and I taped it off and hit it with that for a few coats and it looks like a new knob.

I have used Herculiner on a Tacoma All Pro plate bumper. You paint it on with a brush or roller and it can be touched up very easily. Very durable stuff and easy to use. I wasnt about to pay the $400.00 that Line-X quoted which was half what the bumper cost itself. One can cost me around $80.00 and I still have half left after two coats on the plate bumper.
