Would it be possible for this mod to cause a highway vibration or shaking? I was driving about 75mph and I was getting a bad vibration from the rear... I know my axle is going but it wasn't a grinding sound it was like my wheel was about to fall off. Ideas?

No this is cosmetic, Check your lugs, make sure they are tight, and that the wheels are seated properly and not cocked to one side (i have seen it happen)

I'd say it's POSSIBLE but I wouldn't thnk it would be too noticeable. as mentioned make sure your wheels are seated properly and tight. jack it up and spind the wheel see if you notice a wobble.

as for the bedliner I used it in my wheel wells, I usually spray it off with a hose and it comes clean. It has flaked of VERY little, and all I did to prep was a quick rough sand on the wheel well, didn't even wash them. I have a spare wheel, I might try it out on.

I agree 100% but I wasnt sure if I would like it on my truck, this is a good one to do to see if you like the look without wasting 500 bucks to powdercoat/mount&dismouint tires, the TPMS sensor BS etc.
