Default New R/T owner with questions

Howdy everyone! Just picked up my 2011 R/T last week and have been trolling the forums ever since drooling over all your mods!! Only de-badged mine and tinted the windows and head/tail lights thus far.

Have had a few questions come up in reading the forums that I couldn't find the answers to:
1. How did some of you paint you grill/tailgate emblems and turn the stock rims black? Believe BigHOss's truck was one of the ones with both done and I would love to do that to mine.

2. Prior owner of my truck(he had it for 3 months) went and had the dealership put on the Mopar cold air intake. Was wondering if this was on par with a K&N or if it would be worth the money to replace it.

Thanks for any replys in advance.

As far as the emblems go the front one just pops right off the back one has to be taped off you could either paint to match truck or plasti dip it.

As far as the rims big hoes and i bought different black rims but you can plasti dip them to if you want them all black.

And the cai leave it on there its a nice one not to many use it cause its like $600 lol

some examples any questions hit me up i can walk you through any mod

Hey bud. Congrats on the new truck. As you can tell we all like to see pics so if ya got em post em up! I did color match paint my front emblem and plasti dip the rear emblem red. Also plasti dipped stock wheels black/red. Recently sold those and have 24's on it. As for intake I also agree. Keep what you have.

Painting, powdercoating, plasti-dipping or buying black rims are your options here. I've done both paint and powdercoating. I prefer the powdercoating approach. It's more durable than paint and the plasti-dip is a temporary coating.

My last wheel powdercoating was for my SRT8. I went from this:



to this:





Not bad for $80 a wheel, eh?
