So, I am thinking of adding a little spice to the exterior of the truck, just somethin simple. I can't decide if I want to do the camo strip along the bottom, or do a bedliner material strip. I did the bedliner on an old GMC I had, and it looked ok, but I'm torn with this truck. The GMC was also a dark blue, and this one is obviously maroon. I do plan on eventually gettin back bushwacker fender flares and the rain guards for the windows, so i guess either wouldn't look too bad....Any opinions?

Sounds like you are a "camo' kind of guy. However, if you are going trail riding you might want to use the bedliner as a bit of protection against scratches.

I do like me some Camo, but I'm leanin toward the bedliner as I think it would look better and be easier to maintain......

Bedliner all the way, black goes good on any color, just not visualizing camo looking as good IMO anyways.

Your truck looks good! Changing colors is very expensive. Black is pretty when it's clean, but I'll never own another one. Fender flares would go with the look you have, and aren't that expensive.
