    I don't do any off roading, but powder coated mine black. It cost almost as much as the sliders them selves, but really like how they make the truck stand out.....

    My sliders just shipped out. I plan to clean them well, sand them lightly, prime them and then rattle them with rustoleum bed liner. My avid light bar has yet to require any touch ups which received the same treatment.

    I tried Rhino liner, but the first good rock drag ripped it up. :( I am gonna paint them from here on out when they get scratched up.

    its all in the prep, i attempted to use rustoleum liner and used a coarse wire wheel, but apparently i didn't use a self etching primer so the bed liner didn't stick to well, ended up powdercoating for 80 bucks, well worth it. Its all in the prep so make sure you do it right........
