If you like the badges on the truck then you could black them all out since that seems to be the theme your going for.
Truck is looking good keep it up

I'm liking the look of your hood. How do you like those tires?
So far i love them. They ride really smooth and dont have that annoying whine sound on the road that a lot of mud tires have. I have not done any off roading yet, but im sure they will rip through anything, ask my drive way..lol.

Thanks I stumbled on the idea while searching google. I found the sticker kit and it was like $110, but the plasti dip is awesome for this application

I actually want to color match the whole grill, bumpers, and handles. Im not much of a chrome guy but i havent done much researching on how or where i could get the stuff to color match those items.

Whats that plasti dip. I never head of it
Plasti Dip is a multi-purpose rubber coating. I just the 11 oz spray cans. You use it just like spray paint,but the nice thing about plasti dip is if you mess up or just get tired of that look all you got to do is peel it off. Just make sure you put good even coats on and it comes off no problem. I have used on my wheels, hood, and badges and love it so far with no problems. The only store that sells it around me is ACE hardware for like $7.50 a can, but i also use www.dipyourcar.com you should check this website out. There is alot of videos and pics about plastidip. Hopefully this helps you understand what it is a little better. If you got any other questions just send me a message.

plasti dip the grill red....they sell red plasti dip. I think that would look awesome. If not primer it with black plasti dip and then paint the grill with your color and put some clear coat on it.
