Since I have gotten this truck, I have wanted to see how far I can go with this. I am trying to black out the truck and here is the story of it. First thing I did was buy blacked out badges from Mopar. Little story for all is...they don't make the front emblem in black. They only started in 2013 with the night edition. In 2012 the grill must be slightly bent in the middle cause it wouldn't fit. So I have a body shop where I work and I painted it to match the back emblem which does fit.

Exhaust, and taillights

I love the sound of a v8 exhaust. Love the sound of a Hemi even more so I got a Flowmaster 40 series with black tips. Also bought taillights from VIPMOTOZ Sinister black Fiber Optic and LED.

I know it has been awhile since my last post. I got rims so far for the new truck, different taillights from the black truck which I will be posting to sell. Same third brake light is now on this truck. Recon's (I believe) license plate lights. New steps that aren't on yet.

My plan is to get rid of the all the chrome. What I want to know is, where can I get my grille non chrome. Was wanting to paint it the same color as the truck and the word RAM in black.
I will post pics as soon as the truck is cleaner than it is now.

lol yeah. on the 2012 truck I got it painted. the front emblem. Since the 2013 emblem didn't fit. I like my grille now and don't want to go to the other style if I can avoid it.

So this is the rebel replica grille painted to my color code. The letters RAM are painted black. The original lights that came with the grille came with one light that didn't work so I found 3 of the same style LED and tinted amber lenses. The fog lights are smoked lenses as well. I guess this would be considered phase 1 and the next time it goes in will be phase 2 and be done with minimal chrome. The back bumper is painted as well. Only question I have is the parking sensors. Can I paint them without messing up the sensors? Or do they sell them in different colors
