    Do you think the truck bed coating would be better than rubberized undercoating for the bumper?

    I definitely think it would be better as far as durability goes and how easy it is to apply. As long as you know how to spray a rattlecan the right direction you can do it. I haven't had to but i would think it would be easy to touchup too.
