a have a couple ideas. i owned a black 99 before this one so naturally black is a choice. ive also considered flat black. but on a extreme twisted note, im considering Line-X'in the whole truck. ive checked in with the local line-x dealer and he quotes at 3500 for the whole job. the prep is identical to painting, and he also mentioned if there were some body dings or dents those could be taken care of for a couple hundred dollars more. so thats my cross roads.... cant make up my mind

just my opinion but a bedlinered truck is not a sellable truck, just something to keep in mind. Really would have to find the right buyer if you ever wanted to sell it.

If you Line-X'd it... It would be appealing to serious off roaders if you were to sell. You wouldnt have to worry about scratched paint and you sure wouldnt need to deal with pulling small/shallow dents as they wouldnt be noticable anyways with the course texture of line-x anyways, save your money on the dents. If its a deep dent, sure pull it out but most wont be visable anyways when finnished. Are you talking of doing the interior floors as well with no carpet? Sounds high on the price, but if you do all the sanding ( just basic scuffing ) that will cut out all the labor and all they need to do is mask and spray ( besides the wipe down unless you do that as well ) Just a thought.

yes the dealer said if i did the prep work it would cut on cost. as you mentioned it would be appealing to serious off roaders. thats one reason i considered it. no waxing, no buffing. no hail damage, well windows but not body wise. yes id do the interior as well, but ill lay the carpet back down, it helps fill gaps left with trim and can hide some of the wiring. it would be a huge job all things considered. i may even go as far as the frame and some other essential parts. its only going to make this truck last longer for me.
