I have looked at this too. Thinking about the lower rocker panels to cover and prevent rock chips.

It's all in the prep work. If things are not done right it will just peel off over time. At least with line-x you get a lifetime warranty

I lack the skills for a DIY spray on bed liner. I rather pay $600+ for a professional to do it.

My son did this to his F150 2 years ago. He’s a plumber so all the scrap from jobs along with his tools gets thrown in and shuffled around. Looking at it last weekend I commented on how well it was holding up. He said he was surprised too as the abuse it’s getting is pretty severe. He bought enough materials so he could paint it again once it got messed up enough but… guess who got the kit to do his truck bed 😀

The main word of advice I got from him ( now get you this is my son! 🤣) is spend the time and do the prep work right. The places where he didn’t rough up factory paint enough are peeling in places. He used an abrasive rotary pad and really cut into it. Some places down to bare metal. He said it didn’t get into corners and crevices and these are the problem areas for peeling. Then he did 2 coats with the last one abrasive media thrown on top for anti skid surface. Also put a rubber mat in so it helps with noise and gouges
