Over the rail roll on bedliner on a stepside?

Anybody done the roll on bedliner over the rail? I want to cover up some gouges in the fiberglass and its cracked by the tailgate.

I did a ps to see what it would look like. What do you think?

The way I did it there should cover all the problems. I think I would leave that top body line on the tailgate blue.

Thanks.

Now your PM makes more sense, lol. I dont think it would look bad. My rail caps are scratched too because of my toolbox. I would leave them so you can still remove them if thats possible, since all of the bed panel bolts are underneath it, in case you need to remove those.

i think the sides should go down a little more... just to match the tailgate.

I did a ps of that. It would definitely be more functional that way because I'm always worried about hitting the bed when I load up stuff. But it looked bad with the black all the way down to that body line in a side view.

I know Line-x or any other big brand of bedliner is expensive, but I think it would be worth it. **** lasts forever.

I had a friend put some roll on bedliner on his truck, and after a few years and different seasons, it just looked like ****. Flaking off and terribly faded.

So moral of the story, do like your photoshop except with line x!

Agreed. My dad did it to his F-150 he had. End result roll on looks like **** even if done right. Spray on over anything. The roll on is very rough and huge grits while the spray on lasts for ever and very fine grit.

i agree and if done properly it would look good. it's worth it to go down that extra 1/2 inch or so. piece of mind for those moments. as for the tailgate itself, i'd do it the way you have. so what if it doesn't match blue on top and bottom. that top edge is gonna see all sorts of abuse. i'm glad when i got mine sprayed in he took the plastic cover off and made sure that was coated.

Check it! All the way down to the body line is growing on me. Line-x would be the jam if I can swing it.

I think the one where it doesn't go all the way down looks cool.
I used U-POL Raptor, unless you BEAT THE HELL out of it, it holds up great. and they make it in a tint-able base too. which means you make it just about any color you want, a guy at my shop made his Grey to match his truck, looks awesome.

Quick edit: You spray it on with your compressor, i did mine in my garage with my Dewalt compressor sprays on so easy.
the painter also did a rock gaurd around the bottom of a F-250 and painted over it no problem. you just have to tape off where you don't want to spray it.

I'll have to read some more on that stuff. Sounds legit.

I need to go check some prices around town. A friend of mine just got his done for about $400. Maybe come tax time I'll get some if I don't try something else.

I did it but I used two different products from Duplicolor. I used the bedliner stuff out of a spray can to do the rails and tailgate (4 cans) because I wanted a smoother texture there and then on the inside of the bed I used the Bed Armor do-it-yourself kit since I am unemployed and have lots of time to do stuff like this in my apartment parking lot! I love the bed armor product which can be touched up anytime and so far it is only 25% of the spray in, $93 shipped to my door. I posted pics on here but they are the small kind, still learning about the computer stuff and hopefully soon will be able to get a camera and post better ones.
Another option which I was thinking of doing was doing the bed liner under the rail and buying some aftermarket bed rail caps.
