The main reasoning behind my idea and thoughts of doing this was to keep the "desert pin-striping" down to a minimum while I'm off-road, and mainly just the look of the flat black paint job. Maybe I should start focusing on a standard flat black paint job then so that it doesn't mess around with the weight of the truck and such.
I could also be completely wrong about the weight thing, but I have read a bit about it on other forum and just over the internet and the weight thing keeps coming up, maybe its an opinion that isnt true?? Like Barnyard said maybe try to find out what product you want to use and what it weighs to do a bed liner, times by 3 or maybe 4 just so your math is fairly close and go from there. This all was just my opinion, which was being asked right? Im deffinetly not trying to deeter you away from doing this as it would be neat to find out the truth. I am more than positive that there is a member on here with a 3rd gen that has done this, I saw a picture somewhere....

Did you do the satin black paint job yourself, or do you have a shop do it? I take it that you can't have a bottle of touch up paint for small scratches then?

No i did the prepping and got the paint and reducers etc then dropped it off at a "shop" to spray the paint . You can prob' touch up for chips but for gentle surface scratches that would easily go away with a buff will be harder. Well you can buff it of course but the flat will prob start going glossy. Nothing wrong with a few war pinstripes if you don't mind it.

Opinions are all good brother, that's the whole point of having these forums besides getting help for matters. Yeah, I'll be swinging by a shop soon to ask some questions and get some more info. I'm not completely deterred about the liner paint job, just riding the fence and will be able to make a good sound call on it once I get more info.

Nope, nothing wrong with that at all.

I like the idea too. I never really thought about it before but if you do a lot of off-roading it would definitely keep the truck looking good. Plus if you live anywhere where they put salt on the roads it will keep everything from rotting out.

I've always like the look of bedlined tricks...I also didn't know, until reading this, that you could get different colors, that's pretty neat
