Thumbs down Got to change truck appearance

I have to go to the street to smoke.............Yah im bad the root of all evils and the reson behind all problems. Anyway within 3 days i have seen 4 black rams lookin alot like mine. This sucks. I have never seen them before but come on. The bee is goin in the spring for sure. Time to take action and hopefully be one of a kind. A pink bee/lime green/dark purple scoop and running board pkg. I live in a small city this is nuts. Well maybe iam. I like individualality. Whats more boring than seeing 5/10 viehicles the same. Its probley just me venting.Stress???????????????Anyone else thinkin this way?

I agree. Losing your vehicle in the parking lot just doesn't cut it. Maybe that's why I haul my 4 wheeler around so much.

Could be worse....A buddy called me the other night to make sure it wasn't me being chased by the cops at 100 mph in the big blue dodge. I guess it was pretty much identiical to mine. Hell, I didn't even know these trucks would do 100.

Honestly, I have to agree with that statement, after all your truck looks awesome, and short of stealing yours, they will just imitate it, but I see what you're saying. You put all that hard work into your truck to have it resemble your style just to have a bunch of copycats on the prowl, lol! Put some purple daisy decals all over the place and I can pretty much guarantee they'll copy someone else, haha, but why should YOU have to change YOUR truck by golly! You were there first!

It's the biggest reason I went with the hood I did, it totally changed the way the truck looked, and since I got it I've seen one other on a Cummins 3500. I guess the higher priced mods just aren't used that often. Sorry to hear you're seeing more like yours, but I think it's the front scoop that does it, lots of SRT hood out there.

I agree...one of my routine mod plans includes making my vehicles look different from stock. I don't go wild..mostly I just debadge/demold/tint, etc...just enough to make them stick out.

However, I think this is going a bit too far, bones!!!

Think about it this way Bones, by having a sweet ride and causing people to purchase the same mods as you, you are helping kickstart the economy!

Yeah I think we all know how you feel. It sucks to have a vehicle that looks like everything else on the road. And it sucks even worse to have a cool vehicle that you customized and has some imitators that look just like you. When I had my 3000GT there weren't many others in the area, so I knew mine was unique. Now that I have my truck I see so many other Rams out there, luckily only a few are the same color, only 1 has the same stripe on the back like mine, and only a few have the wheel-to-wheel nerf bars. So I blend in a little, but then again, I haven't done a whole lot to mine......yet.

Bones, don't make drastic changes to your truck, you worked too hard to get it that way. You should tint the windows dark and maybe powdercoat your rims. Go completely black.
