Default Spraying Rocker Panels?

This spring I'm thinking of spraying my rocker panels with some Rust-Oleum Bed liner. Because of tires flinging rocks all over the place. What would you guys think of it?
Here's what it looks like now

i say if you do it, do the sides and entire flare cus it would be much better looking if you did it like that. i say that cus those flares arent like these which look good not sprayed and has the liner near them if that makes sense.

yes do it, here is my valance Line Xed and I have since replaced it with a oem factory valance for merely no reason, be sure when you do the rockers also, do the inside of the doors along the edge as well. here are some pics to motivate you

4evermodding,

Do you think you could post some full shots of your truck? I have been thinking about doing the same bedliner paint to mine and would like to see what it looks like on the whole truck.

Tks
