Default Any Suggestions

Here is a pic of my truck with and without my cap on bed? What looks better? Since these pics I have also added chrome door handles,led chrome tailights(which I can't decide if I like or not) and bars in hood scoop to match grill since. Any other suggestions on what to do to make it look better on the outside? Thanks in advance!

I honestly like it either way. I'm not a big fan of step bars or chrome trim, but thats just me. I never used to care for Toppers until I owned a truck with one...never thought I'd be 26 and actually like it, but they sure come in handy and especially on the Ram they look good when they're flush with the roof like yours. Very sharp truck you have there One thing I, personally think would look great is a lift with some 33's or 35's on those SRT wheels.

Yea i think it might be to much chrome now with the handles and tailights, but alot of ppl like it...I don't know really. I was thinking of going with 22" rims instead of the 20"s that are on it now. A little bigger tire as well! I found a chrome rims that has inserts that are the color of the truck, not sure what to do there!

Looked at both pics, first with the cap. Looks way better without the cap, lika a totally different truck. Nice and mean looking.

Both ways it looks good but I like it with the cap.

You could paint the mirrors body color.

I tend to go to a monochrome look (one color) with little to no chrome but yours looks good with it against the red!

How about some red calipers?

I like the truck without the cap. I would recommend getting one of the fiberglass tonneau cover that hang over the bed sides. It really makes the truck look "cleaner". When I put mine on it changed the way the truck looked.

I have to agree with the other guys, not a huge fan of the chrome.

Is the hood a straight SRT 10 hood? Or is it an aftermarket company hood? It looks like the scoop is a little different

Very nice looking truck and while it looks great both ways, I like it without the cap, looks more aggressive, IMO.
