Drive shaft paint
I have a 2011 ram 1500 and I noticed pulling up to my truck the other day that the drive shaft is extremely ugly rust. It is currently the only rust on the truck and I can't stand the thought of it. If I could see it in her car, everyone else can? Are you able to paint the drive shaft? I can't think why not just never heard of anyone doing it. Probably a dumb question but I can't be the only one bothered by rust look on my truck, no matter where it is.

Some people say it may throw out the balance of the driveshaft and cause a vibration. I hate the sight of it as well along with the steel weights under the truck on either side. A light sanding and then some flat black Tremclad is in order in a couple of weeks as soon as I get back from Argentina.

The joys of a steel driveshaft. I would also be hesitant to paint just due to the potential balance issue, however it has been done before.
