I have a 2005 Tacoma 4x4 and have hit a few rocks with the black metal skid plate under the front of my truck (I do not have the extra aluminum skid plate). The groves left by the rocks have a small amount of rust in them. I would like to just paint over them with some Rust-o-leum I have in my garage, but several sites on the internet say that the rust will continue to grow under the pain and eat everything away. Is it necessary to sand out all the rust before I add any paint?

You need a rust killer like "Rust Buster" Stops the oxidation!

You need to remove the traces of rust.

Prime and re-paint.

I've used appliance epoxy paint with good results on Wrangler parts.
