its been done, but if you do it make sure you get all the dirt and rust off. Might be better to do it when its for sure dry out. wouldn't want moisture caught between. But i'm not a body person lol.

I've seen a newer Dodge Ram in Rhino Guard from top to bottom. Didn't look too bad and it is super tough stuff. Now with all the colour options, it could look even better. I just don't want to imagine how much prep it would take to do the whole body of a truck.

depending on how thick you do it, it would probably add a lot of wight to an already under powered 4cyl

I have a4x4 mag article and they did a fullsize bronco thoe one thing they say to do is put bigger washers on your fender bolts and doors etc.As for the tintable i've heard it's not as strong as the basic colors like black due to the paint content they use to get the color.Hope that helps[cheers]

If you bed line it and then paint it your paint will still sctratch and come off, plus its so harder to get clean. With paint at least you can always give er a buff or sand and paint with a spray bomb. Bedliner is cool but dont overdo it man. Paint it flat black, you can always bed line it when the truck is dented to shit and falling apart with rust.

Yeah painting's probably easiest. Get a flat military colour like armour sand. Then you can get Napa to put whatever colour you use into a spray bomb for instant touch ups. I think it's about $15 a can.

[iagree] just use bedliner in the floor and lower part of the cab and inside the box, use rockerguard one the lower 1/4 to 1/3 of the truck then paint it.... General Paints makes a marine grade rust paint, Its dynamite tough and fairly cheap, just thin it slightly prep the body and spray... ive got a pro spraygun and rockerguard gun you can borrow if you want, and ill give you a few pointers too, just PM me:):)
