    Most of my stuff (rack, bumpers, wheels, sliders, etc) is Rustoleum Satin. I use the spray, although I will get a small can of brush when I touch up my rack. I'm not sure what differences there are when it comes to appearance.

    But performance wise are they both the same?

    Yeah I'm not sure about any differences since I haven't used the brush-on yet. I've used rustoleum gloss black brush-on with fencing before, and it seemed thicker than a spray would be, but I cannot answer your question for sure.

    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.
    hands down the best option for sliders it's easy to touch up and has a nice grip and looks awesome! i just painted my new frame with it. Just be careful it sprays fast and it will run if you don't keep up with it. I like to do a few tack coats first don't lay it on all in one coat you will be sorry.

    I have it on my sliders and it holds up well. The only time it comes of is when it actually scrapes across rocks.

    I use them as steps into the truck and into the bed as well and they hold up great to that.

    ended up using rustoliem brush on on the sliders, the spray where it attached to the frame, and then spraying the top with rustoliem bedliner for grip..... Seems pretty study and easy to touch up!
