LineX rocker panels?

    Was curious if anyone has done this to an '08 Super duty and has pics. I am thinking about doing it on mine but would like to visualize it first also if anyone has a ball park price that would be great. I would like to do fender wells and up the outside of the fenders along the natural body line (2"-3" surrounding wheel wells) and then also do from just under doors up to natural body line (8"-10"up from bottom of doors) and then just right inside the doors on the painted surfaces up 6". I would like to get this done to prevent and cover some minor stone chips from stones kicking up and I don't like mud flaps. Also was thinking of getting this done and then putting some stainless rocker panels over the linex, it all depends on how it looks. I am also hoping this bites the rust in the butt before it starts in the most rust prone zones of a vehicle.

    Thanks for the advice in advance.

    you can go to line-x and they do that stuff but it is really expensive. give your local line-x dealer a call but when i called think they said it was like $500 to do like the bottom 6in or so of the truck basically. the front fender, doors, rear fender on both sides

    I was going to have my last truck done (megacab dually) and to do rockers, around the front fender and the whole rear fender it was right at $1200.

    Search in the picture forum for linex. I know a guy in IL did all that stuff to his chevy. Pm him and I'm sure he can give ya an idea of cost and what's involved. Think he might have had prices in the thread

    Just saw 02DURAMAX pictures and looks great! KJ, I'm with you in wanting to get it done but $2000 is kind of high! Keep us posted.

    Here is my truck. This was the day that I picked it up. It was one of the best things that I ever did. It was something like $700. Chris

    Upstatedzlguy, that is nice. Love the look, love the protection. Should be a factory option.

    The most damaging rust comes from inside the panel where it is hard to wash and allows salt and moisture to sit. The line-x will help hold everything together as the metal disintegrates but can't prevent this. It will prevent the stone chips and accompanying rust and the truck should look new for much longer. I think this idea is fantastic and the look on the Ford above just works for me.

    For $700.00 I would do it in a heartbeat! Time to call around and get quotes. Thanks for the pics UPstateDzlGuy, that looks great!

    Yeah p2p, you are prolly an hour to an hour 20 away from me, but pricing should still be the same, I was thinking of getting some pricing today as well, I'd like to compare, I'll drive down there for the right price.

    Thanks guys. It was the first time they had done it quite like that on the outside. There is a Line-X type material on the insides of the door. I had a guy take care of the rust and it poked back through so he used this bed liner stuff which has worked great. If you have this done make sure it is the Line-X Xtra Guard with the Kevlar as it visually looks better. I'm over two years and love it. Chris

    I'm the guy from Ak. Had mine done for 499 through Armaline and the bed was 450, I didnt have the fenders done like UPSTATE. It gives the truck a whole new look and protection and value if you dicide to sell. The spray that was applied to the fender well is now peeling off the plastic so dont pay the extra money but I think it was just over spray.

    IMO they should color match it with the rest of the paint, it would look cleaner. It's a cool idea but I don't like the black.
