I've been considering painting my skid plate for a while now. I was wondering if anyone had any pictures of how it looks black instead of the random color nissan has it, espcially on a white titan. And how do you guys think it would stand up to lots of 1.5 hour drives on crappy highways. My front bumper is chipped to crap already, thats the only thing i liked about my chrome bumper, it didnt chip like nissan's cheap paint.

Thanks!

I bedlined the Pro4x skid plate I got from Paul. It looks a lot better than the Nissan color. I just haven't installed it on my truck yet. I have it propped up in my backyard, and the damn dogs keep knocking it over into the gravel. No chips or dings yet!

With mine, I originally painted it using Rustoleum Universal flat black spray paint but I ran out and used bedliner instead.

Hi all. I'm bringing this thread back from the dead rather than starting a new one. Has anyone painted their OEM skid plate or added text? I look at the TRD 4Runners and I love how they say TRD in red on the skid and I thought I'd love to do something like that.
