I did think about it as I didnt want to do all the bodywork that was required for paint . In the end I wanted it to match my Jeep as close as possible so that meant lots of the dreaded sanding .
Just wanted to give an update on the tintable spray On bedliner and how it turned out. The paint is almost a dead match and it turned out pretty good. Just anther option for the trailer.

Home fab for the win , financially at least . Or unless OkLaHoMaTJ ships an Exo East

I also question wether this would interfere with the Savvy Rub Rails or not. I had to modify my Exogate to fit my Savvy Rub Rails.
Its nice looking , but its much bigger than what I would want for my rig . At least you get a lot of tube for your money

No Genright style carrier for me , I like a more minimalist function and look .

Here is a great write up from wrangler forum:

http://www.wranglerforum.com/f5/tire...it-152938.html

If you follow everything to the "T" you won't have any issues with peeling or paint coming off. its a good mod and think i may havespent40-50 buckskin supplies.
