It's not too hard at all. I taped off the fogs and the upper bumper. 6 or 7 coats and you're done.

Nice looks good man, does the off color black bother you at all though? Any chance of a far back picture thats lighter?

I used VHT Nite Shade. Just prep and clean the tail lights with some rubbing alcohol, i sprayed 3 coats of it and it was the perfect tint. Not to dark not to light. Some people wet sand it with 2000 grit sand paper first then clean then do the coats however i like more of a rough look not completely glossy. Also you can put on clear coat if you want more gloss.

Won't be clean, but I'll try and get a couple better pics tomorrow. Supposed to be nice and sunny.
The off color doesn't bother me as much as I thought it was. I was worried it would be more of a greyish black... But there is just enough shine to the plasti dip that it looks good (IMHO).

This pic shows the rear bumper vs the paint better, I think. Make sure you click the top banner of the pic to open it larger.

Here are a couple pics I took this morning. Hopefully they're more what you are looking for... (Like I said, the truck is dirty... Rained yesterday and this past weekend I moved a load of crusher dust in the back that left a tonne of dust.)

I'd dip that grille black, the red RAM logo would pop like crazy...nice mods though so far.

Thanks for the pictures SShadow1974, look good! i'll have to take that option in consideration. You should tint your tail lights, it would complete the look haha.

I thought of dipping the entire grille black but was worried of the color match.
