    It comes down to personal preference but I'd get over the rails if it were me just for functionality. I use the top rails to set things on and hit the top rails frequently when loading.

    I'd say get the hole truck linex'ed..... But on a more serious note, over the rails for function.

    Over the rail. If you dont, I see some rail scratches coming your way. If you end up deciding to go over the rail get it just over the lip.

    if it costs the same either way get it over the rails.

    looks good.
    more protection.
    no extra $$.

    Over the rail. I regret not doing it. You would be surprised how magically more scratches show up AFTER you have your bed sprayed lol.

    This is what I mean by just over the rail/lip. I have mine going just over the rail/lip, and I think it looks real clean.
