Mike,

I put a set of Pro Flaps on the rear of my '00 F350. They're wide so they
provide great coverage, are rigid so they don't flap at highway speeds, and
have a chrome strip along the bottom so that headlights from tailgaters
reflect back into their eyes, which is an added bonus. I bought a set for
the front, but they do not clear due to the fact that I have 305s on my
truck. Guess I have to return them (or if you're interested I'll sell them
to you for less than what I paid). If you have standard size stock tires,
the fronts would fit no problem. I have Ford factory fender flares, which
look good and also cut down on road crap, especially with the flaps.

[Kyle Porter]  Mike,  I have a 97 PSD 4x4 and for the rino liner it
will shread over time and thin as things slide and slice on it.  That is the
only downside besiede cost. The mirrors that you see are on the 98
Aniversery edition F150 and 98 and newer EDDIE series.  They are sweet my
wife has a 98 limited edition and she loves them .  You can purchase them
for a F150 only at this time thru car parts .com. or Ford. I am looking for
the roof cab lights that Have no thick rubber gasket.....I think they look
better.  As for the AMSOIL ...... Not sure anyone could ever convienced me
not to change the 15 quarts every 3500 to 4000 miles.  I use chervon delo
and the oil always looks great for diesel oil.  The turbo reems out the oil
and it starts to break down that is why there is so much oil in the system
.FYI :  I My old  SVO mustang was turbo with 21 lbs. of boost and the oil is
always terrible shape at 2000 miles......

Hi Mike,

I'll throw out my thoughts on some of your questions.

I have the Rhino lining in my 2000 F350 CC DRW Lariat 4x4.  I picked it over
the Line-X because the Rhino is thicker and more rubbery.  It really depends
on what you want; they are both good products.  Just check out the shop
carefully before they spray it in.  A bad shop can really screw up you bed.

About the tow package, you should get a trailer brake controller harness and
some fuses and relays in a bag.  Instructions are included in the bag.  The
actual brake controller has to be bought separately.

Just my thoughts on the Rhino liner. I've had one for well over a year now.
It's damn near indestructible, and it doesn't seem to be deteriorating at
all (I don't garage my truck, either) (I've never even washed it). The liner
is expensive, but well worth it.

One of the truck magazines just did a review on bedliners.

I'll try and look for my copy so I can provide more details.

From what I recall, Rhino received the lowest rating of the spray-in liners
tested.

We'll see what happens, but I don't think I'd mind replacing it every five
years. I had a drop-in liner in may last truck and (although after ten years
it was as good as new) I hated it. It was too slippery and my bed was all
rusty (from the rubbing) when I finally removed it.

I'm REALLY happy with the Rhino. I've beat on it pretty badly (truckloads of
loam, truckloads of construction debris), and there isn't a scratch on it.

Continuing on. I had a liner sprayed in my F150 in 92, it's still good
today (other then the cut I made in it with a shovel, that Rhino repaired).

If you have quality workmen doing the work, it should last for -years-
