what do yall think?

I'm in the midst of painting the truck from mineral gray to the old vitamin c orange. My question is what do you think of the tailgate? Its a crappy pic from paint but if you stand back a little it gives you a good overall look and try to ignore the "C" graphic. I like it but just would like some input.

secondly, i'm definitely goin with a flat black hood and most likely blackin out the grille cross bars and inserts. My other question is should i paint the bottom middle of the stock bumper and the bottom lip black? i'm leanin towards it but i'm worried it'd be too much black on the front end.

TO be honest man...the tailgate reminds me of the new furds. Rest of the paint looks good, just no go on the tail gate! JMO

I agree, don't paint the tailgate black, it makes your truck look like a Saleen Ford...

If you're going to go to the cost of changing the color, I would stay away from black for anything but small accents. I hate black panels; it looks cheap to me. It like you have no imagination. If you use black, you need to paint the whole truck black.

The Dude Package was available in 1970 and 1971.
Production numbers for Dodge 1/2 ton trucks in 1970 - 1971 were quite low in comparison to GM and Ford. In 1970, Dodge produced 38,857 half-ton trucks, (D100), and in 1971 just 33,487 were produced. It is a general industry estimate that only 1500 to 2000 out of those nearly 73,000 trucks were sold as the Dodge Dude pickup truck option during their model years 1970 and 1971.

well i am goin for a 1970 'cuda look... and if you know what they look like, the back has a black stripe... and so do the daytona challengers (which i like alot) Paint's free so I'm not too worried about the cost issue since there is none. It'd be in flat black to match my hood. I havent decided on the graphic yet. I want one of the factory graphics from then but dont know which one. I do like them dude's tho

Looks like the back of my 06 Charger Daytona, if you get the contour right to run into the lights it could look sharp.

If you do something on the side like the C stripe or the AAR stripe I say yes to the tailgate. Without any side accent, I would say no.

Post up whatever you end up with. Good luck on the results!!
