    Just got dropped off today. UWS black diamond plate low-profile. I like it a lot and it seems very well built.

    x3, looks good
  6. ok, wait a minute. DO you have it sitting on something at the ends. I just noticed that, it should be a low profile box? or is that part of the headache rack maybe ?

    looks good, way better than my bedlined box.

    looks like it's sitting on the rails of his back-rack

    yeah its sitting on the "toolbox" arms that anchor the headache rack. The short anchors that come standard only reach a quarter of the way so they make those ones specific for a toolbox setup.


    thank you. nope never had a tonneau

    haha appreciate the comment considering how sick your truck is

    i saw yours in your intro post! i like it. i have an old box and you got me thinkin of maybe doin it on that one for my brother and his ranger

    honestly man, i'm bummed with the results. i prepped it really well, but it chips (albeit minor chips.) i used roll on duplicolor, i don't know if it isn't as quality or i didn't prep right, but it kinda sucks haha. plus, the texture of bedliner makes it tough to clean, IMO
  14. Quick question.... Can I have your truck? lol

    would something like a self-etching primer help to keep it on at all? i know i did my bed with stuff called Durabak. it's kinda expensive, but well worth it IMO. i've done 2 of my trucks in it now and love it. the cool thing about their product is you can order it with the rubber granules or without

    i scuffed it really well and got all the clear off it, probably more so than a self etching primer would. i think i should have used some kind of adhesion promoter.
