    first welcome to the navy, second welcome to the board and third might i suggest black or maybe even matching blue. those items will get scratched quickly so i would have to go with whatever spray paint i can find the most of for the best price.

    thanks for the greeting, and i was think black for axels and skids but maybe a color for shocks and other parts that wont get messed up, anything other then all the rust you can see so easily with a lift.

    anything underneath shouldn't be seen through the mud anyhow. unless of course you're keeping it as a "show piece",

    a happy Jeep is a muddy Jeep!!!
