Icon5 Bedline the lower part of the truck?

Only reason I am considering this besides the added protection is I will be starting a front/rear bumper build for the truck with a buddy of mine. I did a quick PS of it and want your opinion. I like it both ways, but being that its a 4x4 its very tempting to do it.

Will not be doing the actual bumpers...just done in the PS for visual image!

there is some stuff out now that is guaranteed not to fade I forget what it's call now. Not really worried about the clean part as much. It is my 4x4 lol.

Guaranteed? i can tell you from experance, that stuff is hard to clean. by the looks of how you take care of your cars, you might not be happy with it. did i say, its hard to clean? Looks great in your pic though. kinda like the yellow, or grey reflection, right at the top of the black too.

aaaaactually its not bad at all. all i ever do is go to the quarter wash, use the big brush they have to clean it and then use spotless rinse. never had a problem. and im sure mine has faded a bit in the last year or so that i've had it done, but nowhere near the point that its noticeable. and i used the cheap herculiner **** from vatozone.

The raptor stuff i linked in another thread can be painted over. we did it on a buddy of mine's F-250. came about 3 inch's above the bottom with it. then painted it, you can tell its there, but its not too bad.

My buddy had a nid 80's F150 Bog/woods truck on 44's, he did that and it actually looked good when he sold it a few years later.

I personally wouldn't do it on my truck, but if it's done right it looks good.

I do plan on doing my undercarriage in some though, I don't know why, it just seems like a good idea. xD

I always thought about doing my old Ranger too, but couldn't ever bring myself to do it. Once you have it done it's almost impossible to go back. I like it both ways.

I say no. If it was a wheelin truck then yeah, but don't do it for looks only. You probably wouldn't like it after a while if it was just for looks.

If you do it leave the metal part of the bumper blue. Just linex the valance.

If you do it don't do the front bumper. Do the valance, but not the bumper.

If that's the case I wouldn't bother doing the front bumper at all. Just sell it as is and get the one you build sprayed.

I have done this before on a different truck. It works great! Just remember when you wash it you will need a scrub brush to really get it clean. I would do it on a 4x4 only though.
