    My towing package is starting to rust. It isn't an OEM one. I didn't know where else to post this, so I am posting it here since I have a 2nd gen :p

    I was going to sand down what I could, cover everything else, and spray it down. What would be the best for a flat black finish?

    x2 on rustoleum (or a bedliner or undercoating). Get yourself a wire wheel for a drill and save yourself a lot of hand sanding. It'll get all the nooks and crannies cleaned out much better also.

    you mean your hitch right? A towing package is the hitch, trailer connector, oil cooler, bigger battery and alternator, and if A/T transmission cooler.

    No, we suggested something that will actually work! Despite popular belief, plastidip is not always the answer... :cool:

    Back to square one after the 2001. So...
    I can't believe plasti-dip hasn't been suggested. It seems an obvious choice to help trap a lot of water against the steel for long periods.

    Should probably plasti-dip the hitch ball, too, so it doesn't hurt so much when you smash your shin into it.
