    OK, I have a 1993 1500 that I am really anal about. I am thinking about putting mud flaps on the front to help cut down on the salt on the rocker panels, but I know the first time I plow with them I'll find a way to tear them off! Does anyone know of any stainless steel or diamond plate protectors that are made to cove the entire inside door rocker panel? I know that they make door sill protectors, but that is not enough!:help:

    The salt will still get over the truck, everywhere. Flaps are a good idea as they protect the paint from chipping.
    I like the Linex on the rockers, looks good and no more chipping.

    I just called linex today about it today and they said it would be $500 due to all the work of taping it off. But for a lifetime warr, i think it would be well worth it. I did spray on bed liner on my truck for this year but its getting repainted next spring and thats what im going to do. just fyi jordan

    I sprayed mine with 3M body scotch (like a spray on bed liner) very durable.

    Thanks for the spray in bedliner idea. I never thought of that. but $500 right now is a little much (we'll see hoe this winter goes!). I am going to go with the mudflaps first and see how well they do. The truck is waxed and it gets a wash after every plow (not just a spray).
