    I was thinking about putting herculiner on the side panels of my truck and was wondering what you guys think. Has anyone done this? I got the idea off of their website and i think it might look cool and serve as some extra protection on the trail. If someone has done it post up a pic. Oh its a 06 silver access cab.

    No. I think it looks like total crap.

    Honestly.

    Wasn't there somone trying to sell his after having painted the wheel flares and rockers with that stuff? I think that one was only a few years old. Took a nice truck and made it look goofy as hell.

    The 2nd gen all bed lined looked really goofy...I wouldn't ruin perfectly good paint and put bed liner on it, once it goes on it can't come off.
