    So I've got a 01 Pathfinder. 4wheel but nothing hardcore, mainly just for mild trails and camping trips. But since it does go on trails the paint hasn't fared so well and my GF wants me to get it re-painted. Im obviously not going to drop money for a pro. paint job just to get it all scratched up again and Im not much for the whole DIY rattle can job. I know some people who love to roll their whole car/truck/space shuttle in Rhino Liner instead of re-painting. I personally don't think there's really anything negative about it and I think it looks pretty bad ***. Anyone have any thoughts or advice on this??

    Alot of hardcore off roaders and rock crawlers you will see there rigs like this, due to its hard to scratch and is hard to chip or dent, some will do the lower half where the most scratches and dents will come from. Now keep in mind this stuff will not protect from dropping off onto a boudler and putting a nice size crease in your rocker panel, small dings and dent it may fair but nothing major.

    There use to be a show some diaster science show they tested this bed liner on a brick cinder wall, hit it with a car, set a bomb off in front and filmed it in slow motion, the results were very surprising it actually kept the wall from collapseing holding the brick together and you could see the wall flex out, from the blast. If this is the case its got me sold on alot of uses. Wonder what it would agaisnt a tornado on a house?

    I have done it on an 89 Chevy, it is a lot of work sanding everything but I liked it in the end. The spray gun is about $50-$100 on eBay, and duplicolor has a bed liner that is decent. Just remember some of them you have to add sand to get the coarse feel on the outside. But it's easy to clean, just pressure wash and carry on. And if you are so inclined you might as well do the underr carriage and the frame, but it would be much easier with a lift.

    OH YEAH, CCs got the right idea. :applaud: :no: :rofl:
    A feller over here has a one-ton Dodge dually, He built His own crew-cab using two pickupumup truck cabs, looks mighty fine with His custom flatbed. Has it loaded down with fire-fighter types of equipment, a 500 gallon pumper unit.
    He used different colors of rhino liner, painted the "WHOLE" truck with Rhino, added in a real nice flame job with colored rhino.
    What a rig ! ! ! ! :applaud:

    I've seen trucks with the lower quarter including the fenders bedlined. You can do the same on your Path. For additional protection undercarriage , you can use Chassis Saver.

    1975 GMC Dually-Rhino Liner

    Hey guys, I'm looking into preservation of this great running truck. Someone told me I could put a liner over rust in the bed. Didn't sound right to me. What do you guys think about it?
