Looks like you had the bed Linexed. That's probably when the cover panel disappeared.
Actually I took a picture just before the coating went down and from it you can see the plastic OEM pin wasn't there.Looks like you had the bed Linexed. That's probably when the cover panel disappeared.
There is a base coating that's very good ($459), but I added the premium uv protective ($140) coating that comes with a lifetime warranty. So that's $599 total. Expect to be charged for removing the panels and re-installing (in my case $150). Now if you work it out where you bring in the panels, you could save that $150. Depends on the franchise. They leave in the floor panels mask around them, but remove the bed wall and tailgate panels (4 in all) and spray coat them separately. Like I've said before, anytime you get that $million look, it's worth every penny. Course, now I won't load anything in the bed...too afraid of scratching it even though it's hard as rock. Will probably add a bed rug soon.Late to the party, but can you tell what the line-x coating cost? Had it on my Dakota that I traded in on my Ridge and loved it.
Same here. I only demonstrated it because of my curiosity since it wasn't until the posting that I even knew the feature existed. I would still be totally in the dark about the option had I not noticed the unplugged hole in the right bed panel for mounting the spare while inspecting my freshly applied Line-X coating.How many of these idiots have their spare tires tucked up under the bed of their trucks only to find they lost it years ago when it fell out unnoticed, or the winch mechanism is so rusted they'll never get the tire out on the side of the road. I had to use a torch to cut the cable on my Toyota truck and the winch (and tire) was completely missing on my S10 when I bought it. You could see where the bolts had rusted and broke.
Six years with my G1 and I never had need to take the spare tire out of the trunk. I hope to repeat that feat with my G2.
Trust me I drive it. Average better than 15K miles every year.Dude, enlighten me please. Are you doing all this to have a bone stock show stopper or something? As I mentioned before, your truck is ridiculously clean looking. I am appalled that you had managed to keep it this clean. Do you even drive it? I wash my truck and clean it at least a couple of weeks to a month, but you boggle my mind. It is not easy for me to be astounded, but darn!!
You will not regret getting the Line-X treatment. It has completely transformed the backend of my G1.I love it. Line-X was my first thought for fixing up the well used bed on my new-to-me 2010 when I purchased it last fall. Your bed looks fantastic. I'm definitely getting this done this year. This old sun faded bed needs some help!
