11' RAM 1500 Flame Red...Help?
 
1 Attachment(s)
Alright, I have owned this beauty for over a year and ready to make her a little more badass....anyone agree??

First off, I will be moving to MA next week and may still require the ability enter into most parking garages.

I'm looking at adding a 1.5" leveling kit tomorrow and possibly a set of 17" XD 808 on TOYO AT/II 33". Cost is around $2500

However, I want to know your thoughts on the best color scheme for the body/wheel and tire combo.

I want an aggressive look, functionality in the the New England winters, and still be able to park in most areas......Thoughts

Get rid of all the nasty chrome, plasti dip or paint it all black. Black accents would look fantastic with that red.

The wheels you're getting will take care of the wheel chrome. The leveling kit will make it even more bad azz, especially with the 33's your gonna put on.
Get rid of that 'B' pillar tape and dip your emblems black, with color matched red on the background.
Dip the badges or just debadge it all together.
That's one heluva ride you got there, friend. And that's gonna be one heluva trip going from the left coast to the east coast. Safe travels.

Thanks for the reply. I will post photos as I make these upgrades. Any thoughts of the grille?

I say don't bother leveling it it looks bad ass with that rake. I am probably a minority here but I don't like the look of leveled trucks. To me they look like there driving around with a loaded bed.
Just my opinion

P.S. nice truck

My thoughts on the grill would be to change it over to a black honeycomb style insert to match your nice looking but totally useless hood scoops.

I'd try to find black honey comb and swap with them or buy it.
That will change it drastically.

As for the wheels. Sounds good.
I too like some rake and not a completely leveled truck.

That said, if you need any pricing on wheels or a level kit, let me know.

1.5" will leave some rake and still give you a nice stance.
