Totally!!! That's the main reason I was drawn to these like flies on pies! It was another unique way to add just a touch of chrome without going too over board!

Mod Update!

Santa brought me a new Recon 60" Xtreme Light Bar!
And he even remembered to grab a harness so I could have it installed behind the bumper.. love the clean look.

It is 26F outside with a windchill of 15F.. soooo, pics will have to come later. But I must admit that this has to be the coolest mod I have done so far! It really makes the back end of my truck stand out.. especially in addition to my new mud flaps.

One very happy lady here!

I also bought the conversion kit for my headlights. But seeing as how it is certainly winter here and we don't have a closed garage (only a covered carport) that install will have to wait for warmer temps. I can't wait to get that wiring installed and have all six lights on at once!

Update: Been working on saving up for a bully bar and KC lights.. but I have managed to acquire a chrome tailgate handle. I need to wait for the weather to get warmer! My mods are piling up.. I've got the chrome handle and the fog/high beam conversion kit to install. I've also got the reverse light wiring to hookup on my Recon Xtreme.. been too scared to try it since it is deathly cold and I'm afraid I'll snap the taillight clips.

You know I am partial to the chrome tailgate handle. I love what you've done to your truck so far but I personally don't like the chrome tailgate handle. I had it on my last truck and once again it seemed to turn into an eyesore.

Each to their own though. I say if you like it that is all that matters!!

Can wait to see pics once it warms up some and you get it done!

Thanks for your feedback, Arth. Did you have the Putco tailgate cover, applied via 3m tape? Or the complete handle replacement part? Was it just an eyesore? Or did it peel or cause any problems? I like the chromed look, obviously, but I am being very careful not to over do it like some other rigs I've seen. All I can say is, whoa. But I have found myself behind a couple of Rams very similar to my own driving around town with the chrome tg cover and I have decided it isn't too much. After all, the rear bumper and exhaust tips are the only chrome on the back end of my truck.. so I figured a little chrome, located high center, would add just that touch I'm looking for.

I purchased this one for my other orange truck.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Dodge-Ram-20...7c3f0d&vxp=mtr

Yes it was applied via 3M Tape and was that brand even though it says from Mopar. I personally just didn't like it to much because once again it seemed to stand out and appear out of place to me.

I say if you think it will work give it a shot. It is only tape after all.

Been busy, haven't gotten to connecting the reverse lights on my Recon bar yet.. but I did pick up a little something for myself off Amazon...

My first antenna replacement ended up just annoying the hell out of me.. at 14" and plastic, it bent real bad at higher hwy speeds (65mph+) and then took more than a day to straighten back out.. so yeah it got replaced with The Stubby from Craven Speed.

I cannot express how pleased I am with this little baby! Easy 'install' and looks superb! It's so short (3") I can't even see it from the driver's seat.. huge difference from the stock antenna for sure. I read multiple reviews for this before ordering.. as far as radio reception/quality, the reviews were half and half.. some experienced a much worse to no signal at all and the others said they weren't affected. I live in the country so it does not surprise me to be one of those who has very little AM/FM signal much at all now. I listen to Sirius all the time anyway, so no problem here!

My antenna evolution in pictures:

It finally warmed up enough for me to tape on my tailgate cover. I know that chrome is not much liked but I think it adds that touch I was looking for to finish off the rear end view of my truck.

I bought the Putco/Mopar part for this.. not some cheap knock off. It installed quickly and easily. I have noticed that my rear view camera is a little haloed now (third pic below).. but it does not block any of the view that matters (on-coming traffic or pedestrians). No more troublesome as the red glow my Recon bar gives off at night.. but just thought I'd mention it to anyone who may be considering this mod.

And now for some pics of course
