I have noticed that very little of the paint under these Rams was prepped, not even a coat of primer, & the paint was applied very lightly
My rear differential & especially the axle tubes are more bare metal then paint
I have been putting off finding a old closed up service station with a pit or stationary ramps, so i could get under there & do a quick prep & use a flat black or semi gloss rattle can to add some paint
Luckily it does not rain here much

You can see the marks on the axle tubes, where it sat in the cradles at the factory





i would like mine to sort of look like this
