Default Two things, looking for help

Two things that I am looking to get feedback on.

1. I have a TRX4 and want to raise the nose of the truck. It is a real pain to try and clean those wheel wells with my 33's. I know there are a couple of members on here who have the Bilstein 5100 leveling shocks only. Can you please post a side pic?!


2. I have also been thinking about 'rhino' lining my bumpers, fender flares, and rocker panels. Basically everywhere that is grey on the TRX. I got quotes of $900, $1350, and $525(different brand). Then my wife hit me with the budget (a big NO basically). I found Herculiner, a DIY product online. http://www.herculiner.com/index.html
Anybody have any thoughts/suggestions/reviews on this type of product. It is $100 for the kit and I think it is worth a try.

I haven't personally used Herculiner, but I know some guys who have and they have all said to not spend the money or time with it. They said it is better just to sock away money here and there and get the Rhino.

Every Herculiner setup I've ever seen has eventually started peeling and flaking off.

Unfortunately, I've heard the same reviews of HercuLiner as well, but I often wonder if some of that is due to improper prep before applying the product and/or not following the instructions.
