Has anyone used Dupli-Color Truck Bed Coating to paint their racks. It comes in a spray can and sold at Wal-Mart. I was looking for something that was a little more skid resistant and a lot more durable.
Does it have much texture to it since it’s an aerosol can?
How dark of a black is it, like the original racks?
How does it wear for ya?

If you put that stuff out of the spray can on i think that it will chipp pretty easy that is the same stuff that i spray my snorkle and my rims with and i am constintly haveing to touch up the rims but i havent had any problems with the snorkle chipping........if you arent goint to be pushing people out of holes then you should be fine but if your going to be putting alot of pressure on it i think that you might want to go with what my buddy did his with it came in a can and he painted it on with a brush and it is so ruff that if you scrape your finger acrossed it it will hurt but it has stood up to just about anything thrown at it

dirtyrider6104 is right. I used this spray can stuff on my Rincon, it looked good but wasn't durable. Scratched really easy. However I used it on the front skid and it held up pretty well. Seems like it does not adhere to metal very well.

Does anyone know if that price is kinda high? I was thinking that an entire fullsize truck bed was like $300 or so, but didn't ask about that.

The rear rack just takes about 5 min to take off, just a few bolts.

$150.00 seems a little pricey. i think the rhino dealers are independent and a charge for something like the racks is estimated by "best guess" by the dealers. remember everything is negotiable. i think i mentioned to the dealer that my atv club was interested in seeing the outcome for future projects. might have influenced the price a little.

Good idea about the telling them others might want to do it as well. The only reason I could think of it being so high is that the prep work might take a while to sand and clean all those tubes. They said it would only take 2-3 hours and there done. I wouldn't mind sanding it all down then take it in and all they have to do is wipe it off and spray the stuff on. Sure would be a nice mod to do but sounds way to much for what your gonna get though.

In Canada we use Duraguard or you guys might call it Rockercoating to paint our racks.You buy it from your bodyshop supply guys it is a bumpy coating used on vehicles lower rocker area to prevent stonechips.It works aresol cans are cheap and comes in black.

When Rhino lining is applied, they rough up the surface to guarantee adhesion. I have a buddy who owns the local RL dealership here.

For folks that have Rhino-lined or Line-Xed there racks -- can you still fit the hook of a tie down strap or bungee cord over the rack?

I am wanting to have it done but am afraid the liner will make the diameter of the tubing too big to fit my tie-downs over. Opinions?

nice rack lol

i took both racks off of mine and also the front bumper, painted them with the truck bed coating that you get in the can from walmart.

it looked very cool and held up pretty well until i pushed a buddy out of a hole and it started to chip and peel. they lasted a good 3 months, after that i sanded them down and put 3 coats of flat black spray paint. and that has held up better.
