Looks really good, I agree with the red/black theme really making it look tough.

Only criticism...the plasti-dip on the HEMI emblem makes it so you can't really read it....I'd either debadge the sides or move the RAM portion to where the HEMI emblem is and take the 1500 off.

I've had mine done for 6 months, no issues with peeling or it coming off.

Love the look of the grill, with the black honeycomb, it definitely makes the front end.

You could try just taking the PD off the Hemi emblem, see how that looks.

I think your truck looked better with chrome rims. Red and chrome just go together. I do like the grill!

Looks good! I like it! Though I have been known to like the red and black myself...




I did the same thing with my wheels and my bumpers. Plasti-dipped them to give me a good idea how they will look. I am going to spray my bumpers with bedliner here shortly.




The key with the plasti-dip is to put it on thick. 1. Easier to remove. 2. Holds up 10X longer!

Love the truck man!! Makes me want to get a 4th Gen!

GREAT. now I know what my truck will look like. I really like the red/chrome but an debating on black. I just dont like the front end plastidipped. To me it just covers it and hides it. That flame red matched front end looks sick as it is, I couldnt cover that up, but to each his own. the rest looks sweet

I have mineral grey and cover all of my Chrome also, didn't like how hemi badge turned out so cut part off that says 5.7 and put hemi on the hood. Haven't had any major issues with peeling, some on the Sharp corners of letters but blame that on myself for not adding enough coats to them. Got impatient of how it would look.
