Bed liner on truck?

So I My truck is getting sprayed with rocks with my MTs I drive a lot of gravel. I was wondering if i could get the bottom twelve inches or so sprayed with bed liner. To hide/protect the dings. Idk what color idk what it would cost just an idea. What do you guys think. Any info on it would be great!

Yes you can. Many members have done it. Look at 08xlt4x4's profile.

Not a Ranger, but a former co-worker's truck once got keyed very badly. His response to that? Bedliner'ed the entire exterior. From a distance it just looked flat black, not until you got up close could you tell it was bedliner. This was about 8 years ago and he did it himself with a few beers, so I am sure a professional or at least someone sober could do a bit better job.

With that thought, a few years ago I remember reading an article in a mag where a guy painted his Mustang with industrial grade paint because he lived in a pretty nasty area too and said it was holding up great.

Jordan -

There's a place in Evansdale that I think does this - I know that they do beds, as they sprayed mine, but I'm pretty sure they'll spray whatever you want. I was really impressed by their quality and service, and they were quite a bit cheaper than LineX (no... I don't work for them, LOL).

It's related to the question at hand, I hope that's not too much of an advert.

Anyway - there's someone driving around Waterloo who has linered (I don't know by whom) his entire truck. I thought it looked pretty sweet.... for a Dodge.
