    I used Rustoleum brand paint in bed liner from Walmart and it's held up pretty well. I used close to 2 gallons of it in my bed (1/2 ton truck 8ft bed). It's also cheaper than the Rhino liner kits,...

    I've ran the P3's. Didn't much care for them. They're good for running smooth surfaces only. In the rough stuff it will jack your truck out of shape real quick.

    I wouldn't suggest running different rockers front to rear. I've not tried it but there probably would be some very ill handling effects. P3's are generally for smoother surfaces and blacktop. Like...
