I'm confused here. I know the 02 FX4's are the same as the 03+ Level II's but technically your 02 is not a Level II. If there was no option for Level II in 2002 then it's just recognized as a regular FX4. BTW I say go black if you plan on line-x anything.

The fact is you're wrong, though they are the same you still don't have a level II. And btw I have an '02 Fx4.

color matched red WILL fad, my friend has his bed done in red on his bagged show truck... so the most that was ever carried in the bed was coolers and folding chairs, that minimal use and exposure to the sun, it fadded a bit.
if you must do it, i say black

Are you sure it was linex and not another cheap spray in bedliner?

I say go black. I love the 2 tones on the 06+ FX4's. Did you get the flares ordered?

yes i got the flares ordered and they were in stock. I went with black because thats a good amt. of money to put into something that you just arent sure about. Id hate for the red to look pinkish and be off colored. I know the black will look good because a buddy got it done on his.

I also love the 06+ FX4 2 tones. I think it will look good!!!!!!

Did you ask if they could spray a sample of the color matched red? Maybe spay a 1'x1' square in the bed or on a piece of plywood?

Regardless, I say black. Its an offroad truck, there is no reason to be fancy plus black is easier to repair if you rip it up on the trail.
