The Line-X dealer I had my truck's bed sprayed at used his 2004 Jeep TJ as a rolling advertisement for his dealership. The interior and exterior were both sprayed, different colors. They also sprayed a bunch of the hard plastic interior parts.

I personally thought it looked tacky. I asked him about road noise vs. carpet, and he said the noise was higher. I asked about heat, he said the floorboard up front is hotter without the carpet. To clean the outside of the Jeep effectively, he uses a stiff bristle brush. I fail to see how that would be really more convenient than normal washing.

Finally, it's EXPENSIVE. Consider the truck bed itself. Just a basic, non- kevlar, black bedliner from Line-X typically costs ~$500. Yes, there are cheaper ones, but still- factor that into painting your entire truck and you will see the cost adding up quickly.

I'm not one to tell folks how to personalize their car/truck/jeep, but I would say I would not do that to a vehicle of mine.
