      Here is what I am debating. I don't want to use herculiner cause it is so rough and hard to keep clean (and it pulls treads off of towels when getting dried), I want something a little smoother like rhino or line-x. But that isn't the debate here. I want to know how you think it will look. Instead of painting my entire truck a different color (pricy and will just get scratched I was thinking of lining the tupperware and lower rockers since they are beat up and then getting some graphics. Here is a quick photochop of the flares and bumpers being lined:

      I don't know Dave, i love the way your truck looks, but man that looks awesome all black!! Just the chrome of the wheels sets it off. If it were mine, i'd probably make look like that. I looks good in my opinion.

      Happy trails!!

      I'd leave it pretty much how you have it. It's very simple and clean.

      If anything I'd cover up more under the trim.

      Either way it'll look good. IMO you've got a sweet ride. :D

      I've just always been worried it would look awkward with the bed liner on there, but i am sick of the grey and I need something that will hold up better to the trail. I was a green 1st gen that had the green rihno on his at the Jamboree a few weekends agon and it looked great so I guess it should look good on mine. Dad is getting his truck bed done in a week or two and also buying a couple other expensive things from this place, so I am gonna go in with and see what kind of a deal I can work to get them sprayed with Line-X.

      I am doing like raceit has drawn. I have a green navajo and I already Herced the front- Bra area and Grill and Bumper. I also did my roof between the sunroof and windshield. My roof had some surface rust and my Front end had some body damage. I took off my tupperware and there is a little rust on the rockers so I am doing it. The only thing I hate is that it appears to be too thin on the front end and I can begin to see through it- Oh well, Ill make it thick this time! Good luck.

      I saw some line-x on a friends scout and it was really smooth. It looked more like llenolium or something than bedliner. He did the Interior, the Cage and a foot upthe truck, it turned out pretty sweet.

      Around town here I've seen a full size Chevy, that was entirely covered with Herculiner, then painted bright orange over that. The surface wasn't very smooth, but it looked very cool.
