Red in caliper covers or paint is a pretty good supplement to just about every colored truck.

I just installed red MGP caliper covers on mine and had buyer remorse soon after giving my guy the go ahead. My truck is white with chrome AM wheels and I must say, it looks damn nice.

Ill post some snaps on Monday as the truck's in the shop because I didn't get a chance to pick it up yesterday.

I am thinking of doing mine in snakeskin green the 08 and 10 viper color. I just need to figure out how to keep it heat resistant. Any suggestions?

Just so happened my cousin and I did mine on the HOTTEST, HUMIDIST Day of the Year. July 20th 2013! Well worth it though. painting and let dry, painting and let dry... Repeat 4 times each corner! Then add decal and repeat with clear coat another 2-3 times each corner. Long Day it was!

I went with VHT Black Pearl (like my paint) and got the decals from a guy on ebay.
What does Everyone Think???... GO! sorry, link wouldn't show pics..
