    which way to go?
    from pix i think i've noticed the line-x colormatched bumpers look pretty different from the paint equivalent, less clearcoat showing, harder to clean?
    i know colormatched paint looks good, but still debating line-x rear bumper in same color as the truck.
    any ideas or anyone has line x rear bumper that can chime in?
    thank you

    Had my tube steps done. and today I just got my TRD Skid plate done. Looks great. Line-X is smoother then rhino, and he others, gives it a cleaner look IMO...

    For $150 I had linex sprayed on brand new trd rear bumper inside and out (thinner on the inside ). put on truck no problems. My truck is black as well as the linex-looks great. They will color match it. At least my bumper wont get scratched up/rust later. The key with linex is that the metal must be new or in new condition, completely clean, no rust, as it wont adhere properly-just like any paint.
