    hey ya'll. i travel gravel roads regularly in a black taco with black nerf bars. just wondering if any of you know where i can get some rocker panel protection. i was thinking of getting something like they use in bedliners. i heard of some coming in a spraycan form, but don't know which suppliers have it. and wondering if anyone has applied some to their truck's for protection on the paint. any info would be greatly appreciated.

    i actually just did it this weekend, i know toy4life has done it to i got the idea/advice from him. just bought 2 cans of spray on bedliner from advance auto parts, masked off about 6 inches of the rocker panel and sprayed away. came out way better than i thought it would and it looks great, ill get some pics asap

    thanx, that looks awesome. thats exactly what i was talking about. i have a black taco with black nerf bars, so chipped paint will show up easily. thats why i'm thinking of doing the spray on stuff. how much did you get for each can (haha can)? anyway, how many coats did you apply? and how long did it take?

    You could also try that 3M stuff that they use for Clear-Bra. I'm sure it'd protect the paint from chips fine.
