The problem with taking that shiny new pick-up, Jeep or SUV off-road is that you’re almost assured that that shiny paint job is going to get screwed all to hell. It’s a double edged sword really. You see on one hand you’ve just gone out and spent some big coin on a vehicle that will cross just about any landscape. On the other hand, that big coin vehicles value will go right in the toilet if you scratch the crap out of it whilst trying to get down those hardcore trails. The owner of this hot Ford F150 seems to have found a way to get around this problem by doing a little thinking outside the box.
Enter Rhino liner, that spray on black sticky stuff that adheres to the bed of your pick-up truck so as to keep it from getting all banged up when you’re hauling stuff around. You see a good bed liner does everything to the inside of a truck that an off-road owner would love done to the outside. It provides, excellent impact resistance, corrosion resistance and more importantly abrasion resistance. It can also be had in just about any color you wish. I spotted this beauty over at DodgeCharger.com, a site that is known for preserving and discussing classic Dodge Chargers. Apparently the owner is a buddy of one of the Charger owners and he felt the need to post this puppy up for the world to see.
Originally created by some rich Texas oil guy, this puppy was completely covered in Rhino Liner and by the looks of it, the job was done pretty flawlessly. I am kind of curious as to how much additional weight the liner actually adds to the truck because if you’ve ever seen this stuff in person you’ll know it’s pretty heavy duty. The nice part of going this route is that now you still have a great looking truck that retains its go anywhere, do anything capabilities without destroying the value. Cudo’s to the new owner for owning this pretty trick ride.
