Question Ram 3500 paint ideas

I am at a cross roads with my truck as far as color. Its white now but am debating black or red not unlike the ultra bright Dodge Chargers. I guess I wanted to see if anyone had done anything exciting to their white trucks, ie. stripes, vinyl and such, before I pull the trigger on a whole new paint job.

I have a tail gate wrap on mine. And I also am in the midst of taking everything off thats chrome and replace them with black grill and bumpers etc. And red control arms leveling kit and traction bars

I say whatever you do, give it a "sport" look, painting body parts (door handles, mirrors, grill, etc.) the same color as the truck, but still with a little chrome accenting, it cant all be painted. And I would stick with white or paint it black. Only downside of black is its a son of a gun to keep clean.

Painting all the body parts to match the color sounds good. I am thinking of a BMW frost white.

Lol...yes that damn dent plagues my dreams. I plan to have it fixed before i go any further. I was thinking of a BMW frost white. Can I paint over chrome or does it have to be replaced.

if your wanting to paint your chrome parts black duplicolor sells some stuff that will give it that kinda look of black stainless. i think that would look cool on a white truck

heck i think a old british race car style paint job would look kinda cool. it would deffinatly be different on a dually

Sounds like an awesome plan friend. How do you plan to make the Challenger Hood fit friend?

I decided to keep it white, though the tail gate is a beautiful black.... Will definitely being looking into the Duplicolor stuff. Tell me about this old British race car style paint job.
