Nothing better than spending $10 dollars on two cans of gloss black and taking a little time on a Saturday afternoon doing a nice do it yourself project to get the truck looking nice and glossy underneath!

Just point and shoot. Paint stuck and dryed up very fast, very smooth now, feels like clear coat.

Yea possibly a good idea, but you could spray some one there to see how it will act. Never know you could be ok, stranger things have happened.

I've always wondered what doing what you did and inside the wheel wells with a matte or semigloss finish would do. Mines only leveled, not lifted like yours so you dont see as much up front, but you can see the rear axle in a car behind it.

It always sucks to have the truck all cleaned and waxed up looking good, but you see inside the wheel wells to the frame, axles, and suspension components with surface rust on them and the plastic inner fenders all splotchy with different colors. My truck is black so the underside really sticks out against the black glossy paint. It'd be nice to use a real rust stopper and preventer on it too.

Yup. And I'd clean off the grease dirt and oil if I were you...no way that paints gonna stick to that for long. Part of the reason I haven't gotten around to mine, spend to much time off road and not enough time cleaning the underside of my truck.
