    I forgot the name but it was the more expensive stuff from advanced auto. $13 a can. But I resprayed over everything with rustoliem pro grade because the bed rails were chipped real bad and the rockers were fading. I resprayed like 6 months ago and it's still black and nothing has chipped

    I will have to check things out next time I'm in town. I sprayed flex seal on mine (oops) and it's made with tire rubber so it faded also, but I'd like to spray over it with a decent liner then I may paint over with Rustoleum. Thanks for the quick response.

    Thanks. I want to put the rings back on but when ever I go in the mud they get so clogged up with mud that I have to scrape them out just to drive home.
