Default Dodge Ram Paint Scheme

after i buy a dodge cummins, i'm going to do a couple things for it. then get it painted like the truck i found at Truckin.com and i'm wanting to lift it 6-8 inches and have it on the rims below-Fuel Hostage 22x14 black. with the bumpers,door handles, and grill painted to match the truck. But i am wanting to paint the arm on the tow mirrors orange to match the truck. and the mirror housing black to match the rims. and then my head lights and tail lights would be tinted black (smoked). i would later get orange underglow and interior lights. and if i shave off all the badges, i'd probably shave off the door handles if it isn't to expensive. i don't know yet tho. how do you all think this set up would look?? please no criticism

Honestly do you bro. Don't copy somebody elses truck... Reason why my truck is going Blacked out, WITH a *HINT* of chrome. Real chrome, not plastic covers or stick on. Aka Bumpers, exhaust tips and rims. Rest is being all blacked out. Gives a clean look, aside from your every day murdered out truck/car you see. I have spent well over 2000 dollars making my 12' CC look different than the other 7 that have popped up on my 30 house street... Yea that's right, have had my truck since March of this year, and with in two months AFTER purchasing mine... Black CC lone star trucks, SEVEN in total, have been purchased, all 4.7 versions, but still... Very frustrating when people completely copy you. Be original man and change things up. I think the owner of that truck would say the same...

Should look really good when it's done even if I'm not a fan of the wheel choice justs because of how common they are out here (2nd choice after XDs). The shaving isn't expensive if you have a good shop that is willing to work with you, it's the door poppers that are the annoying part as they can be high lb poppers but work like crap. One thing to think about it possible vinyl wrapping the truck instead of paint, it's a hell of a lot cheaper and more durable in the long run. I painted mine last year and the front is already chewed up from the roads. I have been looking at the 3M 1080 wrap myself and they have a couple of nice oranges; bright orange and burnt orange, but if you want that nice pearl orange, look into the HoK Tangeloupe candy, it pops like crazy in the sun.

Other ideas if you're orange crazy like pumpkin and me: If you plan to keep the stock headlights with black housing then I'd also look into orange HALO rings, depending on the year truck you do get. I run orange 'puddle lights' which is a complete orange underbody LED set up, plus orange grille lighting and lots of orange LEDs in the interior. They're all wired to the dome light so I can turn them on at will, but will also come on when I unlock or open the doors.

Chaney, he said paint it like the truck, not copy it. You'll notice that truck has chrome wheels, not black, and completely paint matched mirrors. There's lots of options for customizing and it helps to have a starting idea.
