A Little Face Lift

Teaser Pics...weather is crappy so I'll take some better ones later

The bottom is color matched Line-X. Why you might ask? Well it's durable obvisouly and it was the only way to ditch the tan without painting the truck. I was nervous at first but I am happy with how it came out. Price was right too!

Looks pretty good. I was thinking of the same thing to ditch my tan at the bottom as well. might do black instead.... not sure. been kicking the idea around for about 2 years now....

Me, too. The current version is still a cool truck, no doubt. I like white trucks. But, for the "Jesse truck", I think it should have been tan line-xed rocker panels and bumpers and black powder coated Rize stuff. It would have been done, then.

Now, I think it has too much white ... now I think it needs black bumpers and black Rize stuff. It would be a different feel to the truck, but still would be cool.

i would to hear continual updates and photos to see how this stuff holds up...
i am fearful that the texture will hold dust/dirt & grim and dis-color quickly.

Mine is the cheap stuff(DIY Herculiner) , and it's going on 4 years with no issue,....so I'd say his will last a very long time.
