    sub'd to see how it turns out if you end up doing it.

    My friend had a Jeep that he did up with plasti-dip, it actually came out looking better than I thought it would

    Just freakin' do it! Cost-wise, it's not a terribly huge investment, and it has the added bonus of being completely reversible.

    If Blackhawke88 can do it to his SWB, so can you. :)

    why not? its not permanent. After you remove it though, you should wax your truck, and I mean real wax not that wash soap with wax in it.
