Line-X/Rhino lining the lower body?

I went mudding yesterday and had a crapload of mud of Arizona mud stuck on the body. I pressure washed it today at my work and my wheel well paint was coming off in my bed, I was planning to line-x it or rhino line it in black. I'm asking for your opinion if I should line-x or rhino-line my lower part of the body up to where the body molding used to be or leave the body alone and line-x the wheel wells. I'm trying to keep it it a black and white theme on my truck. Mind you, I do not wheel that often but I have a few chips in the paint from the rocks hitting the body.

If any of you have pics of what I'm thinking about, I would like to see one on a white truck to get a better idea what it would look like. Here's what my truck looks like right now.

If you ended up doing line x, make sure you get line x XTRA, it has extra kevlar and stays black and doesnt fade.

Thanks! I thought about the white one but wasn't sure if it will match the paint. I was wondering what black would look like, tried the paint shop but it wasn't what I expected it would look like. I sure would like to see your pics tomorrow!

Like you Nfab bars. I have the same set up, but line-x along the bottom, and the bars. Line-x tops the sprays. I sprayed a line across the threshold of the doors. Looks great, and truck looks taller too. No more chips is a plus.Name:  Pahsimori May 23,2009 006_320x240.jpg
