    I have the OEM skid plate and wanna bedline it since it's suppose to make it more durable. i'm not sure if i should just do the DIY rust-oleum bedliner or go get some line-x put on it. i want to paint it after it's done and am not sure if the line-x is paintable. any suggestions or advice?

    I used a 3M bedliner on my TRD skid plate and then painted TRD on it without a problem.

    I don't think a beliner is going to make the OEM skid plate any more durable.

    Post some pics when you are done.

    Line-X the skid plate!!!
    I did the spray myself while on vacation. Then on the way home (8 hr drive), I had so many nicks from where debris hit the skid plate. Since I've had the Line-X done, its been new looking ever since. BTW, my contact at Line-X says they can do multiple colors of Line-X. I'm sure you could paint over it, but would suggest it. Over time, it will look bad (but that's just my opinion). I would spend the extra money to make it look as professional as possible.

    To black out the front without the silver skid plate sticking out like a sore thumb. Grant it the pic is a little old, but still gets the point across.

    I did scratch it once. I took it down to the place I had it done and low and behold they took care of me. :D I've got the touch-up rubberized spray though in case I do it again. Another easy fix.

    That's funny you say that because I was thinking of doing that too. I know. I know. That's another thread. I don't want to hi-jack this one. :rolleyes:

    Don't use regular rattle can black spray paint. The first time I painted my skid plate it chipped horribly and looked like crap after a month. I ended up scrapping all the spray paint off and using 3M rubberized undercoating I haven't had any problems since.
