Rhino Linings anyone?

I love to rally my wrx, but I want more protection I was wondering if anyone has done/seen a wrx with rhino lined rims, undercarage and lower half of the body?
I know it may add weight but the protection would be great. Is it a good idea or should I save my money?

save your money. it would make the car almost impossible to work on underneath if you rhino lned it. if you took it all apart and jsut did frame peices and what not then it migh tbe alright but it could cost bank.

get a rear diff cover and a skid plate from rally armor

what about the Rims?

Rear diff and skids sounds good.

it would wear out your wheel bearings pre maturely because of the added weight. i wouldnt. they arent gonna get as messed up as you think they will. i dick around in the dirt all the time and my rims are fine.

There was a (2) tone Blue / Black Rhino WRX in my area.. It looked Horrible due to the bumpie finish if the rhino lining..

02 WRX.. "It's fun when it runs.. Problem is that it hardly ever does..."
