Has this been done? When I drive tight trails I'd like the benefit of bedliner on the parts of the truck that stick out. Does it look like crap? Has anyone figured out how to tape off so that it looks really clean?

Its definitely has been done. I cant recall specifically what members on here but Im sure someone who does will chime in. You'll probably get mixed comments on how it looks, since thats a matter of opinion. I personally think it looks ok on darker colors and not that good on light colors. But its definitely functional so by all means do it if you like the look vs. pin stripes.

I did Herculiner on the bottom rocker panels. Pretty easy, and covers most of the daily grime and rock chips. I could have done more, but I like how it looks now. See my garage or pics.

ChrisHaynesUSA has put, I think, Rhinoliner on his fender flares.

Did you remove your rub rails or did yours come without and just have the indentions? I have been thinking about removing mine because they are badly faded. I like the bedliner and the indentions look nice.
If you're referring to the plastic door guards, then yes. I believe all Pro-4x's came with them standard. Aside from a ton of double sided tape holding them on, you'll also have 2 mounting holes per side that will need to be covered up prior to coating. I took some pics of that the holes look like, which I can upload here if you wanna see em.

I hadn't seen TravZilla's take on it... i like that line! It flows very well with the bumpers/corners.
When you go up over the entire fender, it looks pretty extreme.

Although... the majority of my scratches are on the upper portion of the fender bulges.

Yes I would like to see them, how did you cover them?

Mine did not have the mounting holes, but mine is an '08 and did not originally have the door bump guards

Thanks for sharing Trav, I like that. I'd considered going with a heavy roll on bedliner as opposed to the rattle can type I used on my wheels, but now the shop option is looking better.

Correct. Models that didn't come with them from the factory did not have the mounting holes. I believe there are 2 different versions of the door guards with different part numbers. Those with the mounting posts and those without.

@TravZilla how much and what shop? Any other prep you had to do before taking it in? Looks great!
