    I recently ordered some sliders for my truck and I’m debating what I want to paint and or line them with. They are not going to see a lot of abuse but they will get used.

    What do you guys think? What has worked for you?

    [​IMG] UPDATE 8/9/10

    Well I finally got my sliders and after going back and forth trying to decide what to paint them with I finally settled on Rust-Oleum Truck Bed Coating for the following reasons.

    1. Repairable
    2. Price (about $8 a can at AutoZone)
    3. Texture (the coating is not slippery when wet)
    4. Easy of application (sprays on very easily, no messy rollers)


    UPDATE 2/3/11
    I wanted to give a quick update to anybody curious to how my choice is holding up. Well the Rust-Oleum Truck Bed Spray I give it a 10 out of 10 for the text texture it give the slider but only a 5 for durability. It has had a tendency to chip and require frequent touch up... I would not recommend the product unless you are ok touching them up fairly often due to rocks from daily driving.


    Thank you everybody for your posts and helpful suggestions.

    One more tip to anybody the goes the bolt on slider route when it comes to drilling through the frame it will be a 100000X easier drilling if you put your drill on a floor jack (like an upside down drill press) and have one person drilling and the other person SLOWLY raising the jack (it’s not a race go slow). I have no idea how anybody can drill through that frame without this trick. If this doesn’t make sense let me know and I’ll do a write up.

    I really like the texture. It's not too gritty and not to smooth.

    I used paint on mine- but I'm thinking about getting some roll on bed liner. Gotta have the ability to patch/repair it.

    I would get something that you can easily spray back on when the paint gets scraped off. Get some of that walmart spray on bedliner stuff (kinda expensive), or just get some black spray paint(cheap and easy). Keep a can laying around for touching up when you get back.

    Just got done painting mine today, i used self etching primer and rustoleom hammered spray paint. They look great and should be really easy to touch up.

    When i weld them on i'm planing on using griptape on the tops so there not so slippery.

    Listen!!!

    I was in the same boat. Ended up doing three coats primer and three oats of rustoleum hammered.

    It sucks. Chipping like crazy. Surface rust popping up. They only been on for maybe 8 months. I plan on sanding them a little and spraying maybe rustoleum bedliner.

    If I could redo it again I would have went:

    First pick 1. Line-x or rhinoed
    Second 2. Some type of spray on bedliner.

    Thanks for all the great ideas, keep them coming.

    I’m currently leaning towards Line-X or Rhino. A local Rhino liner dealer quoted me $100 to spray the sliders (off truck) and I’m waiting to hear back from the Line-X dealer.

    Has anybody here ever used Line-X or Rhino on sliders? I’m curious how much abuse they can take. A truck bed is one thing, sliding against a rock is entirely different.
