I looked at lot of pictures today of rams with the tape off, and I'm 95% sure I'll be removing it.

dbfan: Your truck looks AWESOME!


Not to hijack this thread, but does anyone have before/after pics of the pillar tape removed on a Copperhead Pearl truck? I'm getting ready to pick up a Big Horn in this color and wanted to see what it might look like before I take off the pillar tape.

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
What grill did you purchase? Could have ordered it already painted from the dealership or did you take it to a body shop? I have considered the same for my Laramie and therefore looking for specifics please.

the grill is for a silver express part # 68197703AA It will say it's body color matched in the part description but it's not it will look like this, and ready to paint.



I took it to a body shop and had it painted for $100 and it's a perfect match, they did a great job I'm very happy with how it turned out :smiley_thumbs

The honeycomb grill detaches real easy so all you have is a frame for painting.

Thanks. I was wondering to if was an Outdoorsman grill. I couldn't remember if they were the same. I go back and forth with the grill for my truck. I am going to give it a little more time before I make a decision. I wish I could have both side by side and make a choice.
