Well it would make it stronger in the future, and be cheaper than getting the paint matched. But before you put any on make sure you get some primer on any bare metal or you'll be creating a rust trap. I plan to do the same for my Jeep when I have the cash, but I rolled mine so it's more than just a half inch dent. I plan to go with smittybilt but I'm gonna paint over the powdercoat that comes on 'em before I mount em. That way when I scrape them up more I'll be able to match it easily.

I learned the hard way many years ago: primer does not seal out moisture, so be sure to paint as well before putting the guards on. At least it doesn't have to match!
