Herculiner vs Duraliner for Mopar Steel Bumper

New to the JKowners threads and just picked up my JK last month. Just picked up the Mopar Steel Bumper with foglight cutouts and winch mount for my 2010 JK for $250 brand new. Waiting on my warn winch, shackle mounts (quadratec backordered), and D-Rings to come. I am going to grind off the crush cans later today so I can mount the PureJeep shackle mounts. I am still waiting to find a new rear bumper with tire carrier which I can also do this to.

Question is which is the best way to coat entire bumper with new mounts so it all matches? I read that duraliner does well but may discolor, I want to coat it all black as I want everything on the JK to be black. I want it to look nice and provide the ultimate durability. Any help, input, and pictures would be appreciated.

Every bedcoated, duralined, herculiner style coating I've seen on a bumper fades badly and ends up looking like junk. I suggest powdercoating and clearcoat.

I did mine in duplicolor spray on truck bed coating. A few bucks at your loacl autozone or advance auto. Mine turned out great. No fadding here. Easily touches up. Touch-ups always match once they dry too. Hell even if it does fade, its a few bucks to redo. Looks MUCH better than the flat black that Mopar painted them with. Has a semi gloss finish to it, not to dull but no bling either.



Sorry its the only fairly close pic I have.

both are substandard coatings. I would look into Raptor liner for DIY or LineX if you got the loot

I've talked to some auto paint specialty stores and have learned that the spray-on(rattle can) and the herculiner (roll-on) are cheap and somewhat durable..
but if you want quality, a two part (A+B) mix is the best
and can still be done at home with an air compressor and a bupa gun

Agaudo: Homicide!, ventura how you gonna solve that one?
Ventura: Good question Agaudo,first I'd establish a motive..in this case the killer saw the size of the bugs dick and became insanely jealous!

yeah what a jackass! i have herculiner on my homemade bumper and its fantastic. if (when) you ding up your bumper and need to touch it up... duraliner and herculiner are cheap in relation to touching up that powdercoat... its a jeep not a show rig. mall or crawl, geez like that's even a question!
