i would use either rubberized undercoating (messy and kinda cheap, $3-4/can). Rustoleum oil based enamal paint (good and cheap, $25/can) or POR-15 (best but $$$)

Maybe clean it well first, then spray paint black..followed with a coat of rubberized undercoating. I've done similar stuff with my truck and that holds up best. The undercoating will chip away over time so having the paint under it will help some

Keep in mind that anything you put on the frame will come off whenever you jack the truck up or anything. It is coated in wax from the factory, nothing else. The wax is actually very good at preventing rust, but it does come off fairly easily. I would try cleaning the frame before actually putting anything on it.

For the body I would do what Mark said.
