Try plastidip first if your worried about not liking it---it just peels off. But trust me lose that chrome and your gonna like it!!

Yeah its up to personal preference, but chrome just does not appeal to me. Plastidip them first and if u like it, get some rustoleum bedliner and make it permanent

I definitely appreciate it guys... Is it hard to remove bumpers/light Bezels/mirrors/kc lights to paint them? Would u prime them first? What kind of prep work should I do to bed liner inside to run carpet less? Would u undercoat it as well or leave the under body with stock paint???

Nope removal is a piece of cake, all you need is a set of torx bits, which you should invest in a good set anyway since your gonna need them for amost everything. As for paint bedliner doesn't need a primer just some simple prepping with sandpaper to promote better adhesion and a wipe down with alcohol or mineral spirits to remove the dust left over.

Never done it myself but have a few friends that did and it turned out awesome, waiting on a free weekend to do it too. From what I have heard Mostaliner is one of the best diy's you can buy. Heres a link to a pretty good write up that my buddy used.

Its always better to get a winch and recovery gear first

I am not plannin on doing a undercoat esp. since I dont live in a northern state.

Check this thread out, im pretty sure it will keep you busy for hours-- i think the page count is at like 200 and something. Plenty of cheap easy mods, some are ridiculously cheesy but there are quite a few awesome ones too!!
Enjoy:
