outch...i would have hot water pressure washed that rear end before painting....caked on crap or what? looks good nonetheless.

imo...clear coat on these parts is worthless....it'll get filthy again and eventually come off anyway. just like before.

What i always did on my ranger, and havent done on my ram yet..

IS get cans of spray on bedliner.. sand / grind off what you can... and go hog wild on that S.O.B.

Looks really good, and doesnt come off like ruberized undercoating or paint..
