acetone or paint thinner will do the truck. make sure you dont touch them or you will see every fingerprint in your paint.

Honestly I think you would be much happier with them if you get them powdercoated instead.

yepp. Be carefull handling them once painted. But its easy to touch up on the truck. Mine have held up great in that last 4 months or so. no chips, and I painted right over the chrome. too

i agree on this too! you can get a flat black powdercoat that will oultast any paint. it may be a little more $$$ but it would be worth it in the long run!

I don't know about the bed liner... but if I was you I would get a sprayed in bedliner like Line-X.... I might just have to get some stacks myself some time also.... espically if I get twin turbos...
