    After removing my camper shell I found a little bit of rust and lots of scratched paint. To avoid more paint and body issues down the road I decided to LineX the bed rails and tailgate. The next camper shell won't cause any problems :D

    All work was performed by LineX of Boulder

    So the camper shell requires you to remove the plastic caps for installation? I siliconed my bed caps on because didn’t like the way they shifted causing paint rub.

    The camper overlapped the factory bed caps and rubbed the paint. Next camper doesn't rely on the factory bed caps and won't get near the paint :)

    OhIC! I looked closer at the picture I can see where your cap was rubbing. definitely wouldn’t want that. I had an ARE shell on an old truck that sat perfectly. That is until I had to have some body work done and they over tightened it and bent the bed cap where the clamps go. It also sucked in the shell down so that the edges were rubbing the paint. Thanks jerks. I don’t know why I didn’t take it back. I was young .

    That is frustrating. Hopefully I never have to worry about the paint again :thumbsup:

    The bed on my '07 was used & abused by the previous owners, so I had the bed rails and some of the outer fenders coated with Line-X. This improved the looks, and extended the service life of the bed.

    Your truck looks great! I’m currently going through the same issue. How did you go about filling all the holes? And have you had any issues after?

    Love the line x on the bed rails! Is there any concern with the cap needing the height of the plastic bed rail caps to fit properly?

    The rail covers were not supposed to be sprayed... I'm convinced a trainee sprayed my truck. The store knocked some $$ off the total, and I drove off. No worries, it's all under cover today.
