    I'd go with the Rustoleum bedliner in rattlecan form. Works great.

    I was being serious, I think it would look really good!
    I plan on doing it once I get some funds. I read on another thread, that some brand of DIY spray on liner is paint-able. I'll look for it.

    I know a guy out of chino hills that will make a good baja bumper for only 350 - 400 including the aluminum and lights. Its not too expensive. And trust me, its a investment worth paying for.

    as much as i would love it, i just dont have 400 bucks for a bumper right now. plus shipping on that item all the way to the east coast would be killer. if i buy any bumper im getting a front bumper first to replace my broken stock one. I just dont like my chrome rear so its gettin painted
