Need Help On Exterior Styling.....Stripes or Decals of some sort

Alright Everyone, i need help with this.....My truck's exterior is too much white. I Want to spice up the exterior with some stripes, or decals that are going to look like a custom paintjob. I was thinking Dark Gray to match the 4.0 SOHC decals, and 4x4 Off-Road declas. Anyone with a good idea or thought, post it! =-)

Now anyone who has a pic of any type of vehicle with cool looking stripes, or flames, or side decals on it, please dont be afraid to post it. OR anyone who wants to make a Photoshop of this with my truck, would be my pleasure.

Here are a few pics of the truck.

its an older pic, but I put some pinstriping I bought on the truck, sets it off a bit.

Here's a cool decal that you can put on your rear fenders, I can probably pick up 2 more for ya if you wanted.


Its not a whole hell of alot, but its an idea

Thank you winks, but i would like more than the pinstripe. Hey Zach, gunmetal racing stripes sound pretty sweet, do you have any pics of what it would look liek?


What about.....Gunmetal Racing stripes with some small Gunmetal flame decals....that would prolly look awesome.

the gunmetal racing stripes sound pretty cool, I'd go for that, but start them at the hood and end them on a couple inches off the end of the tailgate. Flames inside the racing stripes would be cool too, I'd do that in a lighter gray, so its subtle and cool, something you'd only make out from like 10 feet away or somethin like that.

I don't know if this is what you would consider cool or not, but this is my truck (the day I brought it home actually) before I took the graphics off...

Those graphics went into the trash a while back. I didn't hate them, but I didn't like them all that much either.

Silver on black looks really sweet, like Christian's racing stripes for instance..

They sell that pinstriping tape at most auto parts stores, I know autozone and o'reileys do for sure. Last I checked it was $2.99 for 36 ft of it. It's not a new paint job, but it gives the truck a lil more character...
