Buddy of mine has a 99 Taco and is sick of his crappy plastic drop-in liner. Truck has about 110k on it now so I don't think he wants to pay $350 for a line-x. I've seen just-applied photos on the forums before, but was just curious how these are holding up longer term.

Well, here's a truck that's at my shop right now. We're going to apply color matched LINE-X Xtra to the ENTIRE exterior. The truck has a do-it-yourself liner in it and we're going to strip it out. It looks really bad and it's worn down in many areas. I don't know what brand it is.

roll-ons are OK if you never plan on actually using the bed.

when it comes time to throw a 300lb plow in the bed, I look to Line-X.

Yeah, I love the line-x and am encouraging him to cough up the money for it...and I bet he'll keep the truck for another 5 years (he bought it new). 6-ft taco bed can't cost all that much to line-x.
$75 a year :imo

Dont use roll on by Dupont, mine was flaking in under 6 mos. Good luck with whatever you use. LINE X all the way for us now.

i cant tell you how many ive stripped out and redone. jeeps and accessories as well. it may save money in the short run, but in the long run it will actually cost you more since you had to pay for it in the beginning, and then pay extra to have it removed later on. do it right the first time IMO

Here's some pics of that truck. Note: Unfortunately, it's a cloudy/rainy/nasty day. So, pics had to be taken inside. In the sun, it would be more glossy. Again, this LINE-X Xtra in a gray color match.

This is obviously a different truck, but this is Xtra in a Charcoal Beige color match. This pic is in the sun, notice the sun reflections, which really look good in person.
