    One thing you could do that might help, a fixed cable to the top of the pole, with a turnbuckle so that you can add tension, run to an anchor in the front of the bed, maybe use one of the bed rail cleats.

    I sprayed that on my skid plate and it doesn't take much to scratch the liner off. Hope it fairs better for your application.

    Nice!

    Wanting is one thing, but actually getting is another. I think bed stiffeners will need to come first, and I'm still putting those off.
    I did just wire the LED pods that I mounted in that bumper, and they're amazing (for Chinese knock-offs).
    ...and yes, I used one of those switches I showed you.

    I do not. It's a pelfreybilt panel with a blue sea fuse box and breaker.

    Wired up by the one and only @txtaco87 at one of our meets.
    Hey!!! You can call me Chad :)

    ***** please keep in mind I do not drive my truck in mud (so it's really not that dirty to begin with)

    This is with a relatively cool engine.

    1. Open hood
    2. Gently rinse with water
    3. Wipe down
    4. Spray on a layer of 50/50 mix simple green and water
    5. Watch dirt and grime slide off engine components onto ground
    6. Gently rinse
    7. Close hood
    8. Go for a quick spin around the block
    9. Wipe down
    10. Dry
    11. Very thin layer of 303 applied after its fully dry
    This is all subject to how much actual dirt and grime you have in there.

    A session with a scrub brush or other tools for the job may be necessary between steps 5 & 6
