    Ok all. I went and looked today, got a pretty good quote, getting more than I anticipated for my trade. I'm confused about one thing though. All of the 18's I looked at had a texture down in the rocker panel area. I thought it was orange peel in the paint at first, but every truck had it. Is this a paint defect? Or is it intentional??

    This.

    It's an overcoat for long distance/off-road/work truck longevity.
