Honestly, rattle can paint jobs look like rattle can paint jobs. Now if you tape it off, sand it and prime, then prep the primer and take it to a shop to have it done, it should look hot.

If you put a pic of what your truck looks like now and describe what you have in mind, wermbang will likely photoshop it for you so you can see what it would look like. He's amazing at that stuff.

I was thinking from maybe the lowest line down going black or gray possibly...

What about bed liner? I saw another thread about that...

Does this Wermbang find me or me him?

Although I am not a fan of 2-tone, I have to admit that I've seen some that looked awesome, so am always interested in seeing the results of others visions.
If you go this route, I have to agree with RootBeer.....rattle cans can take an otherwise great idea and turn it to mush, but I have seen some that turned out very well, but they were the exception....not the rule.

You can definitely put bed liner on it. I'm not sure about the DIY bedliners, but I know that with the professional stuff, they can make it just about any color, and do whatever you like. If you're lookin for really good protection, bedliner's the way to go.

Well, you can do that. Herculiner from what I've read is pretty good. It takes a lot of prep. You have to sand down the paint basically and mask off the area. It also needs a UV coating, or it will fade. Professionally would be the way to go if you have the money. Lifetime warranty, and they'll do it how you want it. Its really up to you.

But, don't get me wrong, Herculiner could definitely work. You just have to really spend your time in prep and don't rush it. And definitely get the UV coating (it's extra $$$), or it'll fade and look horrible. But it looks great on white trucks, especially when done right.

IMO you should leave the truck they way it is!! If it were a darker color then maybe yes.

I do agree with JCasey on the hurculiner. Thats the only way I would go if it was my truck Good luck on your desision.
