    I had a tundra that was completely raptor liner in a gray shade.  I was afraid that the texture finish would be hard to get completely clean but to my surprise it cleaned up exceptionally well. Over the 1.5 year I had it the colour held great. Cheaper roll on bed liner from Canadian tire fade after time (black in particular)

          That looks sweet. How durable was it? Was it like a chalkboard?

          Am I just being naive to think that besides it looking flat , it doesnít look like a bedliner? In black , you can see the texture a mile away. But I find with a colour itís a lot harder to tell. Especially if I do mine (white top and dark grey bottom) I donít think itíll be that visible.


          Hereís a couple coloured vehicles and 20/20 you canít even tell I think.

            Nothing like a chalkboard. It has a heavy texture. If you zoom in on the pics of the truck in the sun on my link  you'll be able to see the texture. I wasn't able to scratch it with a key

              I meant dense/scratch resistant like a chalkboard, not the smooth part.
              How aggressive was it? I know thatís spraying dependant though. Did you ever regret it?
              You couldnít scratch it at all? Oh nice.
              Thatís pretty hard then. Thatís kinda what I want.

                  Ready for winter.
                  I donít know how much these weigh Iím sure someone on here would know but Iím assuming between 20-40 lbs.
                  I had a friend tell me theyíre aprox 15-20 KG

                  20lbs x 17 = 340lbs total
                  30lbs x 17 = 510lbs total
                  40lbs x 17 = 680lbs total

                    How much did that make the ass end squat?  Probably overkill by a factor of 2, but more is better than less for winter grip. 

                    Paging Luke to defend "phantom trailer" squat, lol.

                                    Yeah I never have weight in it lol. Ive only got hungup once and that was trying to pull a car trailer with flats and frozen wheels up out of the snow in the back yard. Had to toss it in 4Lo and romp it.

                                      A little bit of weight would help

                                            More weight = more grip.

                                              Its not as bad with a full-size, but yeah a little weight over the axle makes a huge difference.

                                              Drove my brothers Chevy one winter, no weight, winter tires. Wasnt as bad as my Ranger, but still pretty brutal compared to with weight.
