    Redid the bed and painted the flares with plasti dip but after 3 coats they looked like crap. So I ended up just using using the bed liner. I bought a really rough roller to give it that rugged appearance. I think when the grille guard is installed later this week will complement it. 20180411_162319.jpg 20180411_162246.jpg 20180411_162316.jpg

    Whew, if anyone is wondering...
    Those flares come off, the clips are cheap (they all break), the rubber surrounds are also cheap from dealer.

    I couldnt mask the truck off as the full metal jacket is a spray on.

    All done in what looks like a poorly ventilated space.

    Post some pics after it’s dry and you have the masking off of the fenders and of the bed. I’m sure it’ll look good.

    Just FYI I painted the truck outside and brought it in when I was done so crap didn't blow on the drying paint.

    Here's a photo of one of then fenders peeled off. And there is the grille guard I was painting today. Should have it installed tomorrow and I will post pics of the entire truck. Got the 4x4 decals in the mail today too for the bed. 20180412_123459.jpg 20180412_102740.jpg

    Rustoleum liner. Used it on the flares too. I bought a roller pad that was very rough and it gave it a great textured appearance. Used that roller on the flares and grille guard.

    I don’t think I’ve seen anyone do the sides of the front bumper too. It’s unique. Turned out pretty even from what the pic shows.

    I wonder if the whole front bumper would look good like that? Where it’s already partially done. Just a thought.

    No, it would look like a fleet taco.
