    Hi

    I’ve seen a few photos of trucks who have the bottom 1/3 of their sides Line-x.

    I just got a price and I was blown away it was $1500 Canadian.

    Wow.

    I can’t see this being worth it.

    Do people do this for the rust protection ?

    Thanks

    Alex

    I checked with my local Line X place and they wanted a lot to do the lower rockers on my truck.... I think it's just the fact that some Line X places don't want to do anything other the truck beds.

    Yeah sounds like some places don’t want to do it and just so happen to price themselves out of business. Oh shucks we charge to much, yay I mean darn.

    6DBC04B1-C52C-4C89-AADA-37550486F5F5.jpeg I was priced 800 for just the rocker panels under the door on both sides. But was only charged 500 for the whole bed and 300 for my steps including sand blasting the steps. I’m assuming because it is tedious for them crawling under the truck so they charge more. I didn’t get mine done because that blew me away price wise. Now that I have steps protecting my rockers I’m less worried about debris kicking up into my rockers

    If you are competent and confident, you could attempt it DIY with say Raptorliner...obviously its a risky venture, but a valid option. I have the cahones to do my bed, but the outside panels...makes my grapes retract....

    I have a TJ jeep Sahara and wanted to do the whole jeep> the line x dealer in NJ told me 3700 for the job I looked at him and said are you on drugs and he got pissed but I was bringing the jeep with everything removed so to make it less labor for him and man that's a crazy high price they really do price themselves out of lots of work also its not like painting with regular auto paint its just globed on even coat and its done

    Great idea.

    I’ll do my truck bed next weekend and depending on how it goes I’ll do the sides the following weekend.

    Well I took the plunge and sprayed my truck bed with Raptor bed liner.

    A lot easier than expected.

    Once I figure out how to tint it I’ll spray the lower half of the doors, 1/4 panels etc.

    Hopefully this is not a bad sign.
