So here's some food for thought. If you want to go all out for the ultimate protection for your truck, why not pull the carpet and spray the floor with bedliner, and cover whatever exposed wiring there is with corrugated conduit and then tape up the seams, or even just heat shrink everything....

Then,with the floor sprayed, install the vinyl floor over top. No need to worry about rust. Hell, I'd spray my dash and door panels and everything in bedliner.

You know, this thread gave me a really crazy idea I would love to put into action. muwahaha.

The carpet in my truck is pretty much ruined on the driver's side. It's caked with salt build up and mud and water. My dad never used to clean it. He's just pull out the rubber mat and shake it off. The original carpet floor mats are like embedded into the carpet. I would gladly tear out my carpet, spray the floor with bedliner, then put the vinyl floor in, get neoprene seat covers and just for the hell of it, bedline the dash, door panels and plastic trim. Now THAT is going all out.

Oh no . Lol at you trying to talk **** about other trucks, might want to go look at yours before you say stuff about others.

It's not as retarded as putting bedliner on your door panels and dash.

Unless it is an exclusive 'mud truck'. It's retarded. In that case just strip the thing. Bedliner the tires too, more traction ftw!

yeah if you mud the truck regularly or use it for work where it gets beat and abused it's just added protection.

Hell, I use my truck for work moving things and my door panels and dash and all my ext cab plastics are all scratched up and gouged from things.

Everything I ever see you post is always talking down on other people's ideas and opinions and state your own as if your **** don't stink.

What's wrong with my truck? The fact it has over 250 000 miles, is completely reliable and never breaks down and the biggest mod I've done is new rims and tires which were more of a practical mod than a cosmetic one?

mikey, you can PM me. I'm not turning this thread into a two way argument about trucks.

Because what would any advantage of that be? From what I understand, real spray on bedliner can't be sprayed on plastic because it's too hot and can possibly melt it or warp it the plastic so that means your stuck with a DIY bedliner. DIY bedliners are no where near as strong as the professional ones, and it will scratch and peel off eventually. What would the point be if it could scratch off? The whole reason why it would make the slightest sense to do it would be if your gouging up the door panels and dash, so why put something that could also get gouged on them? It's not like bedliner is nice looking, or a nice texture. If you slide your knuckles across my bed, you will be bleeding a lot. It would make more sense to just make your own door panels out of aluminum if you wanted something more durable and easier to clean.

It's just the fact that it's something different. The world wouldn't evolve if people didn't try new things and learn from experience.

i took my plastic out cause of a leak that allowed water under it. Man was that thing heavy when wet. That was about 2 months ago. I;ve been driving with nothing but the bare floor and the noise has not been a problem. I'm really thinking about spraying bedliner over it and calling it done. I guess my plan would be to cover the wires with duct tape or flat metal and spray over it.
