New color match goodies for my Laramie
I bought a new grill and had it painted, Much better I think. Then I bought front door handles and self painted the rear ones

paint the rams head and surrounding on the badge but leave the black black would be my suggestion or paint the black to match the truck and leave the chrome (kinda makeing it float). But that looks great

should of got the sport then..

Looks good. I planned to paint the grill on my lone star. I like the chrome bumper and done mind the handles but the huge grill is a little much to me.

Truck looks good so far

Take the black tape off those doors and she will be perfect.

Looks great!
did you sand and rattle can the rear door handles?

that is my plan once I get my Laramie or Laramie Limited: Painted Grille, Painted Doorhandles, and hopefully painted headlights and swapping the Laramie tails out for Sport tails. I HATE the chrome ring in the laramie tails, not as noticable on your silver, but ugly as sin on a darker color truck. brings up bad memories of my 88 dodge dakota...(shiver)

I'd get a sport, but the lack of memory seats/mirrors and the few other little options are a dealbreaker for me, so pay more and spray more!

Looks good but I second the removal of the pillar tape. It jsut seems so out of place on most trucks. Especially with colour matched handles

Thanks all,

I'm not sure about the tape removal it seems like such a permanent mod maybe I'll put something like painters tape on it, then some silver duct tape over that and see how I like it


I did sand and used these Products to paint the rear handles

And I very much agree with you on the need to swap the rear tails out for sport ones. At some point I'll paint the head lights too,

yes I could of bought a sport, I had one a 2012 white one and was sick of the front plastic bumper being a rock and chip magnate

I really like the little refinements the Laramie Interior has over a sport and this way I can have the best of both :beerchug:
