    I'm going to have the bed floor and bedsides replaced (complete bed, too rusty) on my '85 K5 Blazer, and I thought that Rhino Liner in the new wheelwells and on the underside of the bed would be a good rust prevention coating. They use tons of salt on the roads around here. Has anyone here tried RL before, on either area? If so, how did it work out?

    i like this idea too, my 89' 4x 1ton srw crew cab i bought from the second owner, the original owner put a carpet kit and shell in it two days after he bought the truck. he had it for like 14 yrs til 94' then the second owner had it for only two yrs and ran the oil out of it. i bought it with a spun rod bearing had to replace the rod and crank, no problems. it still had the original owners carpet kit in it :eek1: . when i pulled it out the only dents were from something from the underneath up. no downward dents at all. i dollied the two out and now the floor is perfect. so now im going to coat the bed and under neath, and the wheelwells too.
