Bumper, valence, flares....I used about 4 or 5 cans of Duplicolor Truck Bed Coating. Before all that.....I sanded the pieces with 220 grit sand paper to scuff 'em up. Then on went Duplicolor Adhesion Promoter(2 coats), then on went hte Bedliner in a can. Takes some getting used to to how it actually sprays and to get the texture you are after. After the first flare, you'll be used to it(hopefullly).

Some say that this stuff chips and fades over time. well....i've had it on my truck for a year now with no fade and no chips what so ever. Probably thanks to my proper prep job. Before I redid the upper bumper, I rocked it 1.5 years on the same coat and it matched all the newly painted stuff. But i wanted to get the texture to match the valence, so i recoated it. OH..and get this....my upper bumper...used to be chrome. and that stuff is still stickin' to it.

yea we will have to have one soon but yea please dont waste your money with having it installed
if you have a weekend to do it youll be fine the instructions are very good and easy to follow and if you ran into problems i could prob help you out
mine took me about 15 hours and i was doin my self for the first time and i had to run to the hardware store to get tools and loctite and i forgot to heat the bolts and broke one and then spent 2 hours tryin to get it out the rest of the way
if you read up on here you will know how to do it and i could prob help you just need a place to do it you could get something better for your money plus if the shop does it youll be out your truck for a few days
