Never saw black print on black paper.

Might work making a "statement" on a show truck under special display lighting but on the street it would be difficult to detect. Stripes can be in many other colors. You could do a dark charcoal grey stripe if you are looking for a dark stripe. You would get enough contrast to make it noticeable but still get your desired effect.

I've seen a few photos of flat black stripes on a black '12 or '13 Ram. It looked pretty good.

I had matte black stripes on a black Camaro years ago. I have a black Laramie now. I always wished I had gone with a color... red or white. Bottom line for me was you just can't see them in most light. On a sunny day when your rig is just washed...BAM!
Over cast day, at night, dirty truck.... they just disappear.
If I had a show car that sat under halogen bulbs all day... I'd do it again!!!

I'm putting two 'short' red accent stripes on my drivers fender behind the wheel like what the Dodge, Ram, Corvette and other cars have done. Understated but ultra cool looking. Sweet!!~~60_57.JPG

Here is a nice matte 24" stripe that will fit on your Rammy just perfectly. It can be yours at Amazon for a measly $35. in almost worthless obamma bucks.

Take a look:

ford is doing it on their f150 fxr sport appearance package, it doesn't stand out as much on the black truck as other colors...but it does look sharp. looking at doing something similar on my black sport.
