    Sooo. I got some quotes to bedline the whole truck. About 2500 bucks. Ive done a fair amount of research. I don't plan on selling the truck. I'm not worried about the 100 or so pounds it could add. Not like it's a drag car. I do quite a bit of offroading and feel it will be a permanent solution, instead of a wrap or just rocking pinstripes.

    My two questions:

    1. Would you do it?

    2. What bad things could happen if it were done?

    3. There are no further questions. IMG_20181104_111847290_HDR.jpg

    I was thinking about a wrap but didn’t want to do it due to the off road reasons. Wouldn’t a wrap get scratches and pinstripes just like paint would?

    Only thing bad I can think of is if there is any rust and they cover it up with the liner it will become a giant cancer bubble. Otherwise sounds like a good solution but expensive. What do you hate more pinstripes or spending money? LOL but I do think they warrantee the Liner just like they do when they put it in the bed. So maybe if you had to do any rust repair in the future they would just re-spray that spot for free. Maybe

    Luckily, no rust bottom or top on the truck, but down the road? Who knows. I was reading up on it and somebody said moisture under it will make it rust essentially from the inside out. So I suppose as long as it's dry, should work. Annnnd you're right, 2500 bucks is quite a bit but I gotta be honest I pinstripped the fuck outta the 2005 I had and I was not a fan, but wasn't about to pay to repaint it cause I'd be out the next weekend

    I tell ya tho if anybody else considers doing this make sure to call around .The first place I called the woman working the phone could not for the life of me figure out what I meant, even though their website had a FJ pictured done matte black.

    $2500 sounds fair. I’d do it if I had a vehicle and it was already all scratched up and I was thinking about painting it vs liner. If I was going to continue to use the vehicle in that way I’d lineX it. Fading would be the only bad thing I can think of. I would pay the extra for the premium to help prevent fading.
    You can also get color pigment added for a different look. :thumbsup:
    Pictures when it’s done.

    They say the "UV protection" kind is important, That way it doesn't fade if in the sun alot. Will post pics when completed, probably won't be for a couple months though so stay tuned lol

    The 4x4 place in our town that does Line-X did a whole Chevy 1500 the day I took mine there for an alignment. I got to witness the customer looking over the truck with the guy who sprayed it. Well, it was ugly...the scenario, not the truck. The chief complaint was the doors, all of them, shut very hard. They sprayed it pretty heavily in the jambs and they had to be slammed to get them seam to be flush. I don’t know how they resolved it (maybe striker adjustment?) or if the guy just accepted it.

    If I had extra dough floating around any all my projects were paid for, I’d do my vehicle, but I’m not sure how I’d tackle the jambs.

    For me, if I had to spend the money anyway; say fixing an accident and have to paint part of the truck, then I would just go ahead and do it. But, to do it just to do it, I think $2500 is a lot of money that can be spent on other things. I feel the same on tires for instance - I want to get bigger tires, but will not do it until the current ones are worn down and I have to spend the money anyways, then I will add a little more and get better tires - same principle.
    But, in your case you might think that it is something you need, then go ahead - since I don't need it I am not in the same boat and can't see it the way you do.
    I would of course like to see pictures when you are done!

    Yes, if you are not happy with it for whatever reason it will be a lot more difficult to fix than regular paint.

    I am much like you, I'm even putting a new suspension off so i can wear the tires out that I have. I see at as preventive maintenance, knowing full well I'm going to be a dumbass and take the truck where there's trees.
