I am interested in getting a line-x spray in liner, to go over the rail as well as some stainless tube bed rails. Should I get the liner done first or second? I am concerned the rails might not install properly after the liner is installed, so I thought I would get your opinion on here.

Also, any suggestions as to stainless bed rail brands I would be curious to here. My current choice is putco.

Thanks,
Deltron

dont go with the stainless bed rails. If you ever have to load anything that is a lil big for the bed or need to stand on the bed sides...it will be hard to stand on em and there is a good chance they will bend. Go with the flat diamond plate(stainless) or just leave it linered.

:head: Ok, I think I have officially cancelled plans for the bed rails. I saw a couple trucks with them on the way home from new hampshire this morning.. It definitely didnt look as good as I was hoping it would.



:LOL:

yeah, now I have a $70 gift certificate for a truck place near me. I would get the spray in done there, but they dont do line-x. They do have K&N air filter kits, and other stuff like that. Any suggestions for what to do next?

Some things I want to do, but probably cant get there:

Escalade Handles
Colormatched Mirrors
New Tires (BFG A/T or Dueler Revos - 265/75/16)
Some A/V Stuff for inside.

I'd hate to se eyour bedsides if you are standing on them, people just leaning on mine you can see them flex ... not much strength there.

Are they really making them that thin now? I know in the 88-98's I can jump up and down on them and they don't move... Not to mention drop lumber and sacks of concrete and everything else on them.
