Would you ever...

Rhino line/linex ur truck.....the whole thing not just the bed. I was thinking about it on my k5. Saw a new Toyota done up in it. Made me think about doing my truck. With the cost of all the body work to pull all my small dents and dings i bet i could rhino line it cheaper.

Thoughts ? Pros conns? Experience?

i probably wouldnt do it either unless i was doing it to a trail rig or a truck that was gonna be exposed to rust and salt and just hard wear all the time. even then i kinda think the rhino lining is just as bad as rust as far as looks go...

A lot of jeep guys will do it. I think it looks goog on CJ's and Wranglers, but not on Cherokees. The "rough and ready" look just fits on CJ's and Wranglers. I want my truck to shine.

The problems with bed lining the entire.truck are;
-The surface of the material holds dust and dirt, making it hard to clean.
-You'll definitely drop the value of the truck.

However... If your set on doing this, look into Raptor Liner. It's good quality stuff for an affordable price. It is spray on so it is easily applied and can be manipulated to the desired finish(how far away you hold the gun). It can also be tinted to any color you want.

For what it is worth I have had experience with Rhino and Linex. I will never go back to Rhino. Linex is a far better product, looks better , and last longer.

I would also agree with the others - I would never linex my OBS.
