Default Need opinions on my tailgate emblem mod. see pics

Here is my idea. My truck has all of the emblems removed but I think I am going to go back to using them but in all black. see pics
What do you think? Please tell me before I spend the money for all new emblems and painting them. This is my truck now without the emblems and I removed the b pillar black tape too. I used a scroll saw to remove all of the black and painted the chrome to look like this. I am going to either fill the two little holes or put led lights in them in red. Any other ideas are cool to list also for me. thanks.:rck:
Oh and there are two other emblems that goes on the bottom left and right side of the tailgate too. The 4x4 and I was thinking about going with DODGE on the left side instead of the LONE STAR emblem that was there. The last pic is how it used to be until I put the nfabs on the bottom then it didnt have the look I liked so the chrome clashed with the black thats why I removed the chrome emblems and want to paint them black like the tailgate emblem. And I painted the chrome handles too. It looked fine until I added the nfabs. I gotta have them to get up in the truck.

My thoughts. I'd just go with the single Ram badge on the tailgate and paint the Dodge letters on it the same color as your truck. Fill the holes and paint to match.

What is a single ram badge. It must not be the same size since you said to fill the holes? Not sure what you mean.

I was talking about the Ram badge you had in the picture. Paint the word Dodge that is at the top of the Ram badge red. Or if you're getting a new one with no word above the Ram head, that would be cool too.

The holes are the ones in the tailgate.

I like the black too.

Don't put other things on the tailgate.

Just my .02 worth.

i think if you are going to do the emblems black, you should look at doing more black outs, that way your truck will have a "theme" and not look miss matched with chrom, black, red and grey (rims). as much as i hate black rims, a few members with red trucks put black rims on and it look awesome! just a though

Ya, I'v seen some guys paint the exact rims I have black. As far as the carbon fiber I tried something similar to that and had the emblem painted black and from far away the whole thing looked like one black block and you couldnt see anything that stood out just a black thing on the back. That was a good idea though. Thanks.
