If you MUST rhino line something just do the rear tub floor. Dont do anything else

Why not look into the Lizard stuff? Lighter weight material and purpose - made instead of just plastering a thick coat of heavy plastic over everything...

I used some rattle can bed liner on my front floor boards. It's about the thickness of heavy spray paint but with a decent texture.

This topic has been discussed a lot.

Nevertheless, attached are a few pics of my truck. I too was on the fence when it came to this subject, but decided to forge ahead with a less is more approach (in thickness and number of panels). I am very pleased with the results and wouldn't hesitate to do it again.

As always, establish your goals for doing it and address accordingly.

Great use of a combo of products and really nice job! I like the Dyna but was wondering what you did with the bottom of the footwells? Is that Rhino?

That looks like a great way to do it and the crews are not covered so you can remove floor boards if you need to.

I did the inside with chequer plate. looks cool, durable and if you want to change it just remove it that simple.
I went to my local boat builder to cut all the pieces and it looks rigid and cool.

If you ever get the opportunity to take some pics of the work you've completed on your truck, I would love to see them!

Yes. The footwell floor board was Rhino Lined. The benefits: sound dampening, clean looks, and total encompassing so as to prevent water intrusion leading to long-term corrosion.
