Just my opinion, but I think keeping the exhaut chromed would had really set it off.

Anyone have any durability tests on this stuff? Looks super awesome BTW, and good job, but I wonder how long it will stay on and looking good..

as far as the durability of plastidip goes, i put it on my chrome step bars (they came with the truck if i had bought them i would've gotten black to start with) and the plastidip has held up for a year on them even getting pelted with rocks and road grime from the front tires since i don't have mud guards or anything. I also did the "ram 1500 and hemi" logos on the sides of my truck as well as both ram heads front and back and the 4x4 logo on the back. Been a year and all is still looking like new. It all depends on how well you prep and how many coats you put on. Make sure you clean the area with alcohol and put at least 3 coats on and 5 would be better as it protects better and is more durable and is easier to peel off later in one piece if you decide you don't like it or whatever.

While you're truck does look cool.........is it me or I really love the chrome...that's what sold me on the looks, chrome grille, bumpers, tips,...it gives it a classy look. I guess "to each his own"

Well heres the update on the dip, Ive been through 3 car washed so far one touch free and two normal ones and everything is looking brand new. For the interior dust is going be your enemy. The plasti dip is a very hard to keep Dust free, But i have been using mothers back to black and it makes it shine like brand new. The exhaust tips are also holding up well the heat has to affect on it and i even went further back on the exhaust system, to about the rear of the spare tire.

Glad to hear! I am not blacking this exhaust out due to the tips I have (5"ers that came with my magnaflow) but I'm sure several others will benefit from this. In the past I have used the high-temp flat black with great success, so if you have any issues that should do very well.

I've been thinking about doing this for awhile. Looks really good.
