Hey guys so in my prep for moab and college in Utah I've finished skid plating the entire X, painted the front part of the frame, and I did a single AAL while I was at it, I took surfs advice and installed without the overload leaf. The rig definitely handles smaller bumps better and I got a bit more droop, limiting factor is the shocks but yeah it'll do until the leafs are flat and I eventually get Alcan leaves and new rear shocks. Overall Im happy with the improvement for just a little $$. Also ill cut off the swap bar perches tomorrow, ran out of time today.

Well its been a few months, so figured its time to throw up my final Raptor Liner review. I would now give it a 4/5 if I wouldn't have gotten a refund from amazon. But since it ended up just being my labor, all things considered ill go 4.5/5. Honestly, you get what you put in, all my prep on the outside payed off, and the streaking from the hail is no completely gone with the Georgia heat finally curing the car. I think it looks good for a DIY, and is a good way to protect a vehicle that will be used offroad. I eventually plan on buying a bike and a DD after college so then this thing will be trail only and just for fun (i.e. my decision to raptor liner rather than get a wrap). That said, the raptor is not as strong as advertised nor does it cure as fast as they say. I applied following the instructions to the letter, and conditions were well within spec. Also their customer service is horrible, I absolutely hated the rep they sent me, and he did not offer any help when I was dealing with streaking for a month while the raptor actually cured. Regardless, its a good product for the money and I've gotten countless complements at the gym, restaurants, work, and everywhere in between because its something unique. I've always been one to try and deviate aesthetically and this really does that for the X now too. My tepui also matches the car better now lol and the rig just looks bad ass imo.

Off topic: Also I'll be doing the alpine loop and moab in the beginning of August if anyone is wanting to tag along lmk, of if you want to follow a more frequently updated source my ig is now @chase.xterra

Thanks for reading and if you have any questions let me know.
Chase


Also figured I would add a pic of the molle panel I won at WENT now that its got everything I want on it.

Can you take a couple of close up pics near some of the edges? It is hard to see the texture from a distance. The color selection turned out great.

@AlbatrossCafe the first pic is super zoomed in so it doesn't look that harsh to the naked eye

I love it! Makes me want to line x my titan. One of my auto body buddies does raptor liner though. May talk to him.

Thanks guys, and yeah Derek I agree, i think it works well with the color though and everyone that sees it in person says it looks better than the white. But if i had a newer X with a metallic blue or green there is no way I would raptorize it.
