    Coating for running boards


    I have a set of ICI Magnum steel running boards on the truck. Two winters now and they've shed their coating and are getting some surface rust. I'm going to pull them, media blast, and then prime/paint. What would you guys use for a coating that would last? I was thinking of getting some spray bedliner and coat them. Maybe drop them off at the local Rhino liner place and have them sprayed. I want to do this once, and only once.

    I can't think of anything that would wear better than the Rhino liner. I did a pickup bed and when I sold it 13 years later it was still as good as new if a bit lighter in color.

    The Monsta liner looks pretty good. I was also checking out Duplicolor Bed Armor. But the Monsta liner has a nicer looking texture.
    I've got a call into the Rhino place to get a quote.

    If you want to DIY, check out Raptor Liner. I've done a couple of truck beds, tub of a couple of Jeeps, it holds up very well. All you need is compressed air to apply.

    I do need to line the truck bed. Maybe do them both at the same time. But I wanted to do the truck bed in dk grey and the boards in black. American truck owner problems...

    If you do the bed in black, it will eventually fade to dark grey

    That's what I'm scared of, everything turning to faded black.

    We use this stuff at work called Durabak. It's a rubberized industrial/marine coating. It has UV inhibitors and seems to stick really well. Considering a couple layers of that for the bed and the boards. I'd just rather get something I can spray on the boards for a better finish.

    Seems like great stuff. Should have used that on trailer plywood.

    Monstaliner do-it-yourself roll-on truck bed liner

    This seems useful as well.

    Dont cheap out then.

    Monsta liner never faded on me, and never came off. And when I say never came off, I mean I load my sled with carbide runners and studs in the bed.
