I've seen rocker panels and lower fender panels done this way but not a whole body.

Heck...why not?

Not saying it would be the only one, but I doubt many have done it. Might want to see if you can get different colors than just black, unless you want black. Then it would very likely be unique.

That stuff is best sprayed on bare or close to bare metal so you'll need to media blast the old paint off.

Ya I'm definitely gonna have to sand it Down ( hopefully bribe some of my buddies yo help with a case of beer) and there is different colors but I am leaning towards black since I'm redoing the interior charcoal grey and black , , I wonder if it will add a significant amount of weight to the truck , think I should do the grill of the truck? I'll be takin before and after pics this weekend to

It will add weight, how much I don't know. I wouldn't do the grille with it, its pretty thick stuff and you want good air flow through the grille.
