    So I have been on leave this week and I decided that I would do a few things to my truck. I reran some wires, sand blasted and painted my skid plate, I also added the blinkers to my corner lights Used LEDS. I'm also playing around with a fog light idea.

    Here is my skid plate. So far it just has two coats of Rust-oleum Automotive paint.

    No, see, if you paint stuff in your driveway every time, then you'll never need to get your driveway professionally sealed! It is like a constantly refreshing coat of paint. ;)

    Looks good.

    My Driveway is mostly painted now after painting my truck in it twice plus repainting my sliders and bumpers and stuff so many times. Eventually ill probably just paint the driveway too.
