I know this has been talked about before, but when you put bedliner on the side of your truck has anybody had probs w/fading or peeling? I had a treelimb fall on my ex. and was going to re-paint the whole truck, and put spray-on bedliner on the lower third of the sides and on the fender flares. But i don't want to do it if it is going to fade or peel. So....:dunno:

I did it and it is awesome. Doesnt fade and resists chips very well :thumb:

P.S.
Make sure you treat it like you are spraying new paint. meaning the prep should be excellent, clean, sand, and clean again before you think about putting the liner on

If you did it yourself what brand did you use? I figured i would paint the whole truck and then do the liner spray. Was thinking about doin my bumpers and step bars to, what do ya think?

I've heard the black herculiner does fade in the sun. You didn't mention brand or color though so not sure what you were thinking of using.

I was goin to use black, not sure of the brand. I know it is a sprayable 2 part bed liner that my local paint store sells. Just wondered what kind of luck anyone else has had.

I did it to the rockers on my ranger,

it was pimp, i used box liner, like the guy said earlier the prep is key, rough the area up nice so it's got bite, i put tons of highway KM's on that truck and those 33's stuck out quit a bit so lots of spray up. The liner was overly resistant, i had it on there for 2 years before touch ups would have been necessary. I did a spray on application with the gun that comes with the kit (it's got big tip so the textured material gets through), and i used to use Meguiars Shine + Luster on top of the liner as it started to chalk out a bit at the 1.5 year mark, but that made it look nice & shiny black... easy enough to remask and reapply, even if you do it every couple years you can get the stuff for like 30 bucks, over two years thats a good investment.

(That picture was taken on one of many roadtrips for work up north. Sparwood one of the tiny gatherings of people they call a town along the way from Vancouver to Ft. Mcmurray, oil town Canada)

A Buddy of mine had Rino do his whole hunten jeep inside and out about 10 yrs ago. It still looks great but he keeps in parked inside his shop so I dont know how it would look if it got sun every day. The back of my truck is done in Linex and it still looks good but has faded a little. The rocker panels would not get full sun.

This is how mine looks, hard to see with the pic and the color of my truck but I think it looks pretty tough. And its functional too :thumb:

Ok here's my 99. Long story short...the pass door had damage and originall had the chrome cladding which I wasnt very fond of. So after getting the dented door fixed I decided to remove all the chrome cladding and Herculiner basically the entire beltline of the truck... I think the results are well worth it. Note: 05 front end conversion with 99-03 clear headlamps. Looks good to me since I have HID's and don't feel like changing the headlamps out and buying new HID's all over again.

Feedback is of course appreciated. And believe me...it took some guts to do this, cause its PERMANENT.

i have a fj 40 that is painted with line-x it was done in 2000 so i don't know if it has changed but it does fade. however they do or did have a uv stabilizer that they can spray on to stop it. i guess it matters what brand you use. i do like the line-x though. i have black in my truck and have not had any problems.

Nice job, looks good!.

Yeah it is permanent...lol....but I think it took more guts when I did Cut-outs,....the truck was only 6 days old...

Yeah,...my truck was only a couple months old(still had new car smell),...when I handed my 6 year old some 120 grit sandpaper, and said..."Go for it"....lol
