spend the extra and get a spray in or at the least, a roll on one. there are some guys on here that used the roll on one and made it pretty thick.

I'm assuming its a why to why am i selling?

I just want something to better suit my needs, and something i won't have to drop thousands upon thousands of dollars into to get how i want it. plus I haven't had the best luck with this truck so time to cut my losses and start over!

i was told the spray in ones help with resale. if you don't wanna drop $500 into a spray on, at least get a roll on one.

LOL. I took my drop in out once and I cringed. The paint was worn down to the metal in a bunch of spots and so much dirt collects under there. I left it as is since I was eventually going to sell.

yeah i took my drop in in the summer and sold it, but when i took it out holy crap, the paint on the wheel wells was gone, and just random places everywhere else, it was brutal, but oh well, the new owner doesn't need to know about it haha

I just want to make it as presentable as possible in a trade in

That was the first thing I added to my truck, spray on liners will last, won't warp, flop around, you can add a soft or hard cover and wont allow water to back up under it and cause paint peel then rust.
