Question Anyone seen one of these?

Decided to purchase 2011 Ram 1500 Laramie. Trying to decide between Black w/ Light Graystone (two-tone) or White w / Light Graystone?

Can't tell by brochure what this would look like. Haven't been able to find one at dealer to see in person. Dealers only have Black w/ gold -seems a little "sparkly" for my taste. Would really appreciate any guidance?

Thanks!

Try http://www.ramtrucks.com and click on Build Your Own. It might help. Couple of must haves in my book, 4x4 and 3.92 anti-spin and protection package (skid plates and tow hooks).

How about stopping by the Newbie area and introducing yourself.

Thanks for the reply - appreciate that. Were the Bushwacker flares difficult to install?

Take a look at those color combo's on Dodge's website. It's still not the same as looking at them in person but at least you'll get the idea.

Bushwackers are very easy to install
with mine they didn't give an extra inch of the little strip that goes between the flare & fender, i almost didn't have enough of it, measure 3 times & cut once

Hey GT,

Noticed you're in SD - so am I. Sounds like you've done a nice job with your Ram - would love to check it out one day? Also like to get your impression of the truck after owning it for a little bit, if possible.

Take care,
Mike
Mike

The black and the gold actually looks pretty sharp. I just bought the new laramie. I just couldnt do another black one so I chose the new red one instead. Black is just too much cleaning. The white looks ok but would not be my choice.. Hope that helps some.

between the two colors you listed, i would go with white, as stated, black is allot of work to keep clean and shinny.

Bushwhackers were a piece of cake to install. Hardest part was putting the rubber stripping on them before install because they fit every nook and cranny in your body like a glove.
