    Thanks! Im not gonna be using raptor liner though. Im gonna use the duplicolor bed armor if I do it. The main reason for even doing it, is I have so many rock chips on my rocker panels it looks like crap when I wash it. Idk if I wanna do it though
    Edit: I guess I would basically use the same steps though

    Yeah... for best results I'd imagine the process is much the same.

    If you read the Bed Armor can it essentially just tells you to wipe it down with a Duplicolor Prep Wipe then spray the Bed Armor.

    I'm not exactly sure how well that would hold up.

    I'd give you feed back on my bed rack I Bed Armor'd but I haven't even really put anything on it yet.

    List everything to make it look like I've done a lot and that my truck is special, 01-04 front end conversion, clear bumper lights, 3 inch leveling kit all around, Pioneer double din radio, tool box, in vent window visors, OEM 2013 Tacoma rims, P245/75R16 Dunlop AT20 Grand Trek
    I got 7 of these wooden ammo boxes for free from my boss.

    [​IMG]

    Put them on craigslist to barter and someone traded me their RKI toolbox for them.

    [​IMG]

    Fits perfect in my truck. My mind set was to trade it to maybe get something bigger to cash out for sliders or a bumper but seeing it in person and how much nicer it is than my other homemade one, I'm kinda liking it. So from wanting a tool box to two free tool boxes in the past 2 weeks. I'll probably just trade my other one, see if I get hits on that one. :woot:

    Did a little trail mod.... :D

    [​IMG]

    Followed by a subsequent trail fix. Thought I broke a lower ball joint...

    [​IMG]

    Turns out I somehow sheared all of the bolts holding it on. Luckily I was able to get them out, and had a spare LBJ with me that had bolts in it.

    [​IMG]

    Did a number to my tire....

    [​IMG]

    Popped out the CV...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I was able to drive home just fine, but will probably replace the CV and LBJ tomorrow just to be safe. I also dented my fender just a little bit, had to bend it a little to avoid it contacting the door. And I was only on the dirt road on the way to the real trail!
