    I painted mine so it would not rust! And it does look cool too. I used Hammerite. It holds up good no matter what I put it through too.

    The real reason to paint the undercarriage is to prevent rust in the first place, I would recommend to do it right, lift the body off the frame, strip the underside, fix all rust spots using POR15 then use Herculiner bed liner to undercoat the entire underside.
