I just painted mine last week although I sanded it then used gloss black Krylon fusion on it.. looks better than new!

I would say only use bedliner if you are gona be driving through rough bushes or something where paint would otherwise scratch off..

Satin black is kind of boring..no? I would go with something a little metallicy to give it sort of a good metal look.

If your only painting the grille I would say satin, if you wana go crazy and paint all your trim than bed liner.

Another vote for satin black... I'd only do bed-liner if you already have it on other parts of the truck body
