Considering Line-X: Over the Rail or Bedrail Caps?
I have made up my mind to get a Line-X in my 1985 Ford F150.
If I go with the Line-X over the rail, how neat does it look? Do the edges look good? I am trying to decide if I should do that or go with the replaceable bedrail caps.
What do you think?
One more thing. Are the bed bolts typically removed before the Line-X is applied? If not, what happens if I have to remove the bed? I am going to painting my truck soon, and the bed will have to be removed.
This is probably too late for Lariat85, but for anyone else asking the question, I highly recommend over the rail. I got under the rail when I bought my 2004 ranger; the dealer told me it would look better. A couple years later I went back and had the rails sprayed. They were kind enough to charge me less than the cost of a new install, although it would have been free if I had done it that way the first time. If you plan to use your truck bed to haul stuff (what a concept!) you might as well protect the whole thing.
