I think black would look best. For the rear axle on my truck I used Rustoleum High Temp BBQ paint and it has held up very well. I use that paint on everything and its good up to 1200* too .

Maybe charcoal gray, if the bottom of your truck is gray. What about using the Rhino bedliner paint? That would be cool. I also use the bbq paint and it works well.
