bed liner

i recently lined the lower trim on my cab and bed with rhino liner. but the dirt and mud that gets kicked up off the road is nearly impossible to get clean, the dirt seems to almost stain the bed liner. i know there is a petrolium product that polishes it. but i dunno if there is anything simpler

have you tried pressure washing the dirt and junk off it. Try a little bit of tire foam and see if that gets it to shine.

Any pics of your rhino liner job? I've been considering have the lower panels lined all the way on my truck, but always wondered about the final look of the texture and if dirt would mar the color.

I just saw a dupli-color kit (I think it was duplicolor.) On sale at autozone that I will be picking up today for some bed-lining.

Will wait for better weather for pics.

i used rust olium bed liner, has a rough finish texture, but it is a smooth look, dirt does stain it but a lil mothers back to black used when you detail it will keep it looking new, just make sure you get a good sand job and clean off all debris before you apply it, it say it will stick to anything but it help for applying base coats.

I picked up a dupli-color bed armor kit that was on sale at autozone. Comes with all of your paint roller, brushes, tray and everything.

Its a role on kit. It says that its made with dupont kevlar or something like that.

What sold me was the fact that it claims not to fade with UV exposure.
