I have tried 2 different aerosol spray on bed liners and it still just sand blasts it. My next try will be monster liner. You roll it on yourself.

I tried a few different spray and roll on products. They all have pretty poor UV protection so they turn chalky. They don't tend to flex well with how the fiberglass moves so they chip and crack. My line-x has held up great and the 5 year UV protection guarantee makes me happy that I don't have to recoat every 6 months to make it look "good" again.

I've always wanted to mold and cut out a piece of aluminum or something to bolt to the bedside as protection. So far just a thought in my head. lol

You could go to a place that does wraps and have them put a layer of clear on where they normally get blasted. 3m makes some really thick clear too. When it starts to get beat up just take it off and put more on.

I used thin ABS from Tap plastics and cut to fit, heat gun to mold. I used 3M double sided body side molding adhesive and it sticks good and has provided great protection. It's been on for over two years.

what is everyone with a stock intakes and no inner fenders doing to protect their intake from water??? I was either going to go to Home Depot and pick up some material to make the inner fender or order some of that water resistant pre filter material and just rubber band it on... Any suggestions? Thanks!

I have a small prefilter with a hose clamp around it to stop larger rocks an debris from getting in there.

Nice! The 89-95 4WD hubs are a huge strength upgrade too. It's pretty much a 2" hollow snout. While it's off, Check all the Heims and Uniballs, easier to replace now ya know.

I've tried just about everything you could possibly try in order to keep the factory intake. In the end, the only thing that has worked "well" has been an AFE intake with a prefilter.

Thanks for the advice earlier guys, I sold my midtravel double cab last weekend to buy a tundra, well today I looked at a double cab with a tc long travel kit in front and pulled the trigger, I'll probably be asking some stupid questions in the next few days while I fix up some stuff on the truck. It also came with a defined sua kit with deavers new in box.

So far I need to: get a front bumper built, get the little plastic pieces that go under the headlight and on top of the bumper, get a hitch, get the defined kit hooked up (hopefully with a space saver bedcage), and get the current saws rebuilt with new shafts or find some used coilovers to buy.
