What to do with ugly frame?

Hey guys. I put a lift kit on my truck in January of 2010. After it's been on for about a year or so, I need some advice with what to do with my frame, rear differential, and some suspension parts. Now that you can see it, and it's starting to age, it brings down the looks of my truck a lot. Have you guys ever used any kind of undercoating spray or even paint that you would recommend for this?

Tremclad satin black. :smileup:

A lot of guys are doing the standard tar based undercoat, I've seen some doing the rhino liner spray and some use the good old rust-o-leum heat resistant spray. Just use care with over spray.

Here's what it looks like from a few feet away. See what I mean? Sorry for the after dark pictures.

I just did mine.
Clean it real good with power washer, then use a tractor enamel paint. I have added more coats and such after these photos

Auto parts stores should carry it.

I think I may have just used Rust Oleum Laquer paint. Just crawled underneath after cleaning and started spraying what I could see. I did go back after those pics were taken and painted some more. I am still debating on what color to do the drive shaft in, silver-blue-or black.

well, whatever you used, it looks great. I like how you done the differentials in the blue. never really seen that before. I like that a lot better than the chrome covers. haha.
