Suggestion for you. If you are digging that sport truck look as you put it, you should throw a set of lowering springs on the back. It will sit level and get rid of some of that fender gap in the back. Your truck looks great now but I personally think that would increase your sport truck look threefold!

I agree 100% but as much as I am currently digging the sport truck look I could never bring myself to lower the truck. Not that lowered trucks don’t look great, but I throw a thousand pounds or so in the truck bed on occasion and like it to sit level when I do. It bugs me when a truck is sagging in the rear with a load. In all honesty when I ever a get around to needing new tires the truck will probably get the 3.75” RC lift and 35”s. I am just surprised how much I am enjoying the look of it stock right now. I thought I would look at it every time and think to myself, man that truck needs a lift, but right now I don’t.

My friend runs an auto body shop and painted my tails and 3rd brake light for me. Windows are also tinted to 20%. I think it looks phenomenal and will be making the changes permanent in the near future. Only thing I think I will change is remove the RAM 1500 badges but leave the HEMI.

I'm normally not a fan of bright colors on trucks but I'll admit I just can't get enough of this color. I've lifted every 4x4 I've ever owned but I'm really digging the sport truck look.





I agree with the bunch- that truck and the color look great with your black accents.
A question about your tail lights. When you go to your friend to get the tails painted... what are you asking him to do specifically?

"Tint the tails" seems so open to interpretation and possible screw -up.
I would hate to have them professionally done and have them end up way way way to dark ... or worse.. barely tinted at all.
any help appreciated.
If this is considered a post jack- I apologize.

Spoiler, having the tails professionally tinted involves painting them with a paint/clearcoat mixture. Obviously, black and clear are used to attain the tinted/smoked look. You can also mix the clear with body colored paint to make a translucent matching tint color. The big question is how to mix the paint and clear to yield the correct level of tint.

^^^^ What he said. My friend has done several sets over the years and I had seen his work knowing it was still very translucent. I was pretty ignorant of how to ask for it done and just trusted him to do a safe level of clear/black mixing. Any type of color will reduce your light output some, but the effects are minimized if done properly with clear/color versus window tint or other methods.
