    I painted mine. Had some leftover Krylon brushed nickel.
    It’s really not much of a “skid plate”
    Shitty night time pics.

    I think you might be the only one... I painted my Pro skid though.

    Wow! Very nice and unique. Now that would look damn good on my black truck. I’m gonna start saving!! It would match my suspension.

    I redid it with bed liner and @TUFSKINZ letters. Is holding up much better now. Spray paint just chipped off too easy.

    I'm think about doing mine with bedliner spray also. How many coats did u put on?

    BDTRIMS.com has the raised domed letters in several colors also. With the black bedliner spray I might do silver letters

    I don't exactly remember, but I'd guess around 3 layers. I rolled mine on, but if you have the equipment and room, spraying on would probably give a more consistent appearance.

    Oh it was sarcasm but poorly expressed. Skid plates are for getting wacked by shit saving (hopefully) the important parts. If we are going to highlight the TRD ones why not all skid plates. That was the sarcasm. However I do grudgingly admit the plain steel OR s.plate Paparee did up looks sharp.

    Thanks! 3 1/2 year project. Had it since October 2015. I can’t stop adding to it.
    Just put on the pop n lock auto tailgate lock and auto bed LED lights.
    I’m always looking to improve it.
