I had hoped that painting it black would kind of make it blend it with the rest and I like the way it turned out...

Before...

After..

I painted mine black as well and trimmed about 90% of the exhaust tip off after crushing it almost closed a couple of times. Oddly enough I have never hit the muffler though.

I have been thinking about doing this too. Was hoping for a little more info since its in the "how-to's" section. Do you need to take the whole muffler off or just spray what you see? If you left it on did you newspaper parts of the jeep or is it far enough under to not worry about it? What is the best type of paint to use that is heat resistant?

I didn't tape anything off and just cleaned the muffler a little bit. My JK was less than a week old, so it was still relatively clean.
I bought black spray paint that you would use for a BBQ, that is able to handle high temperatures.

Easy to do.

I grabbed a can of flat black BBQ grill paint and went to town. No cleaning, no prep, no problem. Still looks good 20 months later.

Apologies for the lame "how-to" you are absolutely correct in expecting a little more.... I should have included more details. :duh:

I didn't tape anything or use any newspaper... figured it would have a nice coat of dirt soon enough anyway. I used the black high temp engine paint from tractor supply. I also painted some other rusty looking stuff while I was under there.

I really like how it kinda disappeared when I painted it black, good results from a simple can of paint that I also used on my BBQ pit.

Here is everything you ever wanted to know about spray painting but was afraid to ask... (I will admit I was looking for something smart Azz but found a real gem in the process)
http://www.ehow.com/how_2084632_spray-paint-its-all-wrist.html

I was cracking up the whole time that I read that article... the beginning speaks volumes about the author...
"Almost every time I go into the local home center, I breeze through the
aisle with all the spray paints to see if they have any new and
exciting colors.

It seems like I am always coming up with
something to spray paint, whether it's a picture frame we found at a
garage sale or a brand-new item we found on sale, but was just not the
right color.

I must have 30 to 40 partly used cans of spray
paint already, but somehow I just feel a need to see if I am missing
anything, I guess.

I find spray painting both frustrating (at
times) and very rewarding (usually). To me, there is nothing like
making a beat-up-looking object look like new again simply by spraying
a little paint onto it."

I stopped by home depot on the way home yesterday and picked up the high temp spray used for BBQ pits. I used a piece of card board as a make shift spray guard to prevent any spray from getting on the yellow body under there. You guys with darker colors might not care as much because it would barely be noticeable. I don't even know if the spray would have gotten on it but I was being a little cautious and the card board was easy. I figured I want it to look good incase I ever flip the jeep over. affraid I had to clean mine pretty good since the whole jeep is covered in mud. The muffler is the cleanest part now but it looks good black instead of rusty.

Thanks for the info.
