Question Bedline the lower part of the truck?

Only reason I am considering this besides the added protection is I will be starting a front/rear bumper build for the truck with a buddy of mine. I did a quick PS of it and want your opinion. I like it both ways, but being that its a 4x4 its very tempting to do it.

I think it looks cool, I like the less rough texture bedliner material, though.

What about a sheen that more closely matches the tires? I'm not saying do it, I'm just curious what look it'll produce.

I,m not too sure about bedliner material on the outside of a truck,,,, Once it gets a little dusty it will make the outside of your truck look really dirty. Just like the inside of a bed when it gets dirty. It never really stays nice and black anymore. Just a thought.

well the material looks good and adds pretty good protection but i have my bed sprayed in rhinoliner and in the sun the black fades pretty quick and it gets dirty but spray it out and you'll be fine

line-x is so much better for fadding protection. and sonic i will never look back after having mine done. saves the trucks body.

I've been thinking about doing that in the near future, but i don't think i'd go that high.

Maybe halfway.

And you missed a spot lol.
