Just saw a show on national geographic where the bedliner place Line-X is spraying humvees and body armor for the military, pretty cool I just had them spray my new truck!

A guy my wife works with got hit by a IED but it was a little to deep. They got out of it okay but I'm sure he was happy to have all the Armor... But I can see the way they must drive some times how it can happen,,,,,, Kinda commen sense being top heavy...

Thomas, how much did that run ya? Makes alot more sense than a liner.

I paid 450.00 to have it installed in my new Dodge with a 6ft bed., definitly rugged material, I was surprised when I saw it on national geographic being applied to humvees and the pentagon.
