    Just a cheap little upgrade. Came out pretty good and matched up pretty well with TRD sway bars.

    Looks Great I think I am going to do that as well. Did you prep it with a primer or rough up the surface?

    The paint I used had primer in it. Did 5 coats.

    I just cleaned the hooks in a pan with Purple Power. Didn't paint the bolts.

    Thanks to @TundraXPLover for the help with how he painted his tow hooks. I just did mine, and they came out great. Now i need to go and giver her a wash. Living in the Northeast sucks in the winter with all the sand and salt.

    Did mine this past weekend as well. Rustoleum 2-1, Gloss Apple Red. It's a good match to the TRD red.

    Sanded, degreased, alcohol wipe, 2x adhession promoter then 5-6 coats.

    There a bunch of other threads on different prep and paint colors too. Many use Tractor paint.
