I have a suggestion, if any of you guys are going to do your rocker panels...get the real stuff please, dont cheap out on your truck like that. The store stuff is fine for bumpers, sliders, step bars, and even the bed but the look and texture of the good stuff compared to the store stuff does not compare. Just my two cents...lol

You should pop that dent out behind your rear tire. Looks like a couple firm taps with a rubber mallet would pop it right out.

Bumper looks good but the custom one will look perfect.

Ty, I know its a little pricey, but I highly suggest you use Line-X if youre going to be doing the body. Some will argue this point, but I can guarantee mine will still be looking new in 10 years while the DIY roll on/spray on stuff will be peeling, fading, falling off. Line-X is also hard enough to hold its shape so it actually protects whatever is coated from impact. Its strong enough that I can literally beat on it with a wrench or something.

I don't get all this talk about more texture on an area you don't need any texture on.. You want the mud and road grime to slide away, not get stuck in Texture... Texture is for the bed.. where you need the texture to act as grip. so items tend not to shift as much..

either 3M film the lower portion of the truck. or have a pro do some Line X type spray..

The bed in a can is great for items that are going to see constant wear I.E. your bumpers and undercarrage items..

Other than that I think the coverup on the bumper came out good..

I wouldn't mess with the spray can stuff....I had it on my flares for about a year and it was chiipping bad.

Do yourself a favor and spend the money on herculiner or durabak. I used herculiner (i have a thread on it) and it came out amazing...highly reccomend it, especially if you are doing the body. It was 100 for my kit, and what I would do is go on ebay and get a complete gallon extra, the quarts are 30 bucks and the kit is 100...do the math..you need the extra

Doesn't look bad, but you need to make a rear bumper that will wrap around and protect the bedsides.
