A 100 dollars will get you farther than any mod.

Plasti dip is a rubber paint and if u spray it on something a don't like it it peels off its good stuff many did colors too

For $100:

Got a tool box for my truck, and a plastic bedliner for the bed of my truck.

Since plastic dip is removable how does it hold up to off roading mud power washers and being cleaned?

Put it on thick(numerous coats) and it is pretty durable. When you are sick of it, it will peel off, provided you put it on thick enough.

Prep work is minimal. Wiped down with rubbing alcohol and let dry then tape and spray! I use tire shine on it to bring out a deep black and because its plastic coat washing is no different.
It's been 4 months or so of rain and minimal mud and washing still no peeling. Winter salt will be the real test... I'll be sure to report on that
