    I am planning on rhino lining the inside of the tub on my blazer. I have heard/read about people also lining the top part of the bed, where the top sits on.
    Would i have any problems if I do this if I want to put my top back on??
    Anyone done this and what/how were the results??

    It seems to me that as long as you made sure your bolt holes aren't covered, you wouldn't have any problems putting your top back on. The stuff is only 1/4" thick. I'd never thought of doing that and since I'm coating my bed and below the lower trim, I might as well do the bedrails too.

    well the stuff isn't even 1/4" think unless you / they spray it on that thick. On the upper parts its usually only 1/8" or so

    What about the top sealing on th windsheild? I don't know about all your Blazers but mine leaks like a s.o.b. and adding.125 to .250 would just make it worse. That's just my $.02

    good point, hmmm, just use silicone and expanding foam till next year, then you can add all you want, could probably add 2-3" in there
    heck good solution for that gun rack question someone had on the other forum. Stash your guns in the extra space.

    Don't forget that moving the top higher will also likely induce leaks at the door windows...
