I have been wanting to do this for a very long time and finally decided to give it a go ahead.

I used RustOleum bed liner from an aerosol can. So far, I have completed the front half of the truck, from the front doors up. I plan on doing 4 coats, and I am currently on my third.

I didn't take photos everything, but I will share what I currently have.

Here is the prepping stage. I had dents I needed to bondo and rock chips I needed to sand down and prime, because they were starting to rust.






Here is a big dent from a baseball bat that I had to fill in.



Some punk kids shot my passenger door with a BB gun. Well, at least that what I thought this was from.




Here is the X with one coat of bed liner. I have sprayed it a total of three times from the front door up. I ran out of cans. I'll finish the rear once I get the front done.




Here it is with three coats. Picture looks like ****. The bumpers were sprayed last year and are dirty right now. You can see dirt on it.



I finally did it.

I am not entirely concerned about it looking 100% pretty. As long as it looks flat black and not an eye sore, I am happy.

Im just sick of being concerned on the trail about scratches from tree branches. Now I can barrel right through that crap....with my eyes closed.

if you are looking for a nice diy liner look up monsta liner. i have a kit waiting to go on the samurai. after months of debating what to go with i picked this stuff because its tough as nails and UV permanent. guaranteed not to fade which is HUGE.

Hope you don't care about resale value.

Resale? Is that a joke? This truck is going down in a blaze of glory when its time to go.

The second I put a aftermarket bolt on this truck, that thought of resale went out the window.

Im waiting for the diesel titans and frontiers.....

And speaking of suggestions....does anyone have experience with raptor bed liner?

I can always respray the front. It only cost me like $45 in rust oleum liner.

that stuff is great! that's what I used to bedline my roof and rocker panels. the nice thing is it comes with everything you need. including a spray gun. check out my build thread for pics.

Here is one more pic. Only half of the truck is done but it is kind hard to tell because the different shades of black are pretty similar actually.
