    So I just bought a 03 tacoma. I am considering lining the rocker panels about 6 inches up. Just wondering if anybody else has done this. And if so, what product and application did you use? Pics would be great!

    I always line my rocker panels with rocker guard about 4-6 inches up. I've always used a generic rubberized rocker guard sold at the local CTC but this last time I have tried a bed liner spray and it seems fine and after a can of colourmatch paint, looks fine too.

    I don't know about the hurculiner type of stuff but the Walmart spray on bed liner is what I used. Prep was just the masking everything off and then 120 grit wet sand paper (used dry) to scuff everything up and then spray. But this is the interesting part........if you hold the can upside down about a foot away from the material to be sprayed and then nice even spray strokes.

    I extended the gravel guard on mine with Sem Gravel and Chip Guard. Probably not as tough as Line X but I don't go off road and it has the factory look.

    Thanks :D

    For herculiner you sand, wipe down then tape off. Then apply and make sure you remove the tape before the last coat drys.

    My sliders are linex'd. With the bumpers the same it looks great, but a rock took a big chunk out of my slider recently. Got it fixed but overall id say LineX was an expensive mistake. For me in Florida it should be fine dice there aren't a lot of rocks here though.
