Rhino lining my truck???

Soo I'm pullin the engine out tomorrow and I'm going to take the box off to fix my two tanks. Hood will already be off for the engine pull. Figured I may as well throw some paint at it while its apart since I hate that's it's grey and paints chipping everywhere.

So I was thinking I may just rhino line it myself. It won't cost me much. Couple hundred bucks for material. More just my time taking everything apart and doing a proper prep job.

What do you guys think? I know it won't be shiny and it'll be a little harder to clean but I think it would look pretty good.

Here are some pick of the truck now. And fender flares will be coming off.

I wouldn't do it, that flat black and textured look is terrible, good maybe for an offload only vehicle but terrible looking, just kinda half-assed IMHO, but it is your rig

Are you front tires smaller than ther rear in that second pik or are you more lifted up front then in the rear?

Good luck either way I would just give it a good paint job if your going to properly prep, mite as well properly paint

Noo the front tires are just in a deeper rut lol.

And yeah I guess that's true. It kind of is just a bush truck/work rig. Or it's going to be at least.

I just can't really decide on a color. I only really want white or black but I already have another black truck.

I want to paint it white but rhino lining it would just be soo much faster since I wouldn't have to prime paint and clear coat. Just one coat

Yeah I like the look too. Did he take to an actually shop or just use the spray stuff. I was thinking I'd just use the stuff in a can or the roll on ****.

If I wanted to get really wild I could do white rhino line lol

PLEASE do NOT rhino line the truck.
If anything get a gallon for John Deere Blitz Black or CNH Non Glare black and do that
