Looks very nice there deere! Totally changed that plain jane truck and I bet that didnt cost ya too much...
I had a really good write up of doing the roll on bedliner over on another forum but it got closed and cant find the posts now. Stuff is pretty easy to do and you can get them lines pretty straight yourself if you have half of a steady hand. I had it on my zr2 that I just sold because the mud tires would throw so much rocks and debris up on the paint. You definately improved what it woulda looked like with a bunch of chips and that doesnt affect the resale value much since soo many people are interested in doin that themselves. Makes me want the cab lights for my new dodge even more!!!!

thats awesome! the previous owner of my truck did the same thing, and you can tell it has really helped, for a 16 year old chevy in the road salt capitol of the country, its in REAL good shape. The only thing they did that pisses me off is they did the fender flairs which are now peeling and they look like crap. oh well. cab lights look good too!

I have seen it done on other trucks liked it, and it offers protrection from rust/chipping. Also I like the look of it-trying to make my trucks stand out more than others is the idea. I plan on keeping the truck for a while so I will be good

Details for you guys and anyone else-I used herculiner bed liner in a 1gal can and rolled it on. Stuff is about $90 for the kit but only used half a can and I did a pretty big area so if yours is smaller you might be good with a quart or 2
Used the air sander and sanded all the paint to scuff it up some-cleaned up all the dust, taped it all off nice then just rolled away. After that I rolled the insides of the bed-areas I couldnt get to I used spray bedliner. Took the tape off, cleaned up any edges and let it dry overnight.
If you have any other questions ask away.

Thanks! That was the plan to make it stand out from the crowd. Yes it was pretty easy. Cab lights were not to bad I had directions off the net of exactly how to do them plus I had the factory wiring harness

cant from the pics, but how would you say the coverage in the bedliner stuff is? is it nice and uniformed looking, or is it blotchey, and can you see roll marks?
