Default 10-14' White Ram Lonestar owners who want to black out. DAMN CHROME

I traded in a blacked out FX2 F150 2013 for my White loaded Ram Lonestar. I love the truck and its drive quality. As I started looking at black wheels i noticed that black on chrome bumpers doesnt look very good. Has anyone Black chromed their wheels or bumpers with Dupli color or have any photos of what they have done to their Grill and wheels on a white truck? I am just at a loss and will probably have to go to a larger chrome wheel and tire combo.

Hi FR8zilla,
It's not black chrome but it is pretty much blacked out. Started as a Tradesman, and I added some black out parts to it.



Enjoy and have fun,
preachp

I think some 18" chrome wheels with a nice M/T tire would look sick on your truck man.

So you think drop the wheel size from a 20" longhorn wheel to a 18" and get more rubber on the wheel? Or just put more rubber on the current wheel with Grappler or something?

i think your truck would look beast if you put a suspension lift on it and added some 35's with black wheels. Or even with the leveling kit some people stuff 35's in there but i am not a huge fan of that look. Also you can use plasti dip on your grille, i did with mine and it turned out well. Just did the inserts and it changed the look of it. If you want my opinion i think you should make all your chrome white and then do black accents.

thanks for the tip Draken. How can I see larger pics of your truck? Do they make Plastidip in white? and how well does it hold up to car washes?

From what I've seen you don't want to anything big like the front bumper or grille with the dupli-color shadow black chrome stuff. It ends up with a greenish tint. I did use the dupli-color shadow on my front and rear emblems and have been happy with the way they turned out.
