Mine looks far worse than yours, and I'm not painting it. I've got it pretty much where I want mechanically. I'm doing a complete custom interior. And I'm replacing all the rubber in the doors. But exterior looks like hell and I love it! Nobody parks near me. Everybody gives me PLENTY of room. I don't have to worry about dings or break-ins. I WORK it without worrying about it. It's the perfect truck! My brother calls it reverse snobbery. I call it "Old Paint".

Semi-gloss or Satin black can be touched up very easily though, for next to nothing.

I am going to paint mine this year or next year but before I do I am going to get some nice truck body parts that I need and then I am going to do performance upgrades and then I will paint it. So if you have the truck where you want it performance wise then paint it if you do not have the truck where you want it performance wise then buy the parts that you need to get the truck where you want it performance wise and then paint it.

Pitt I say do it. It cant hurt anything and if you all ready did it to your dually and you think it turned out great, then go for it. Also what lift and tires do you have on your 90?

later
