I know you need to adjust the bumper but if you painted the white part under the header panel black it might help it look cleaner. like the part behind the bumper.

Thanks, yeah I should have masked that part off so it didn't get white on it.

That paint job is unreal! To fade that paint all the way to white like that had to be a pita haha. Awesome job John! Truck looks awesome. And I told you about my wheels John. I'm going to need tires by next winter so I'm getting 15x8's sometime this summer or fall if your still interested in mine by then.

That turned out pretty cool. I think the grille surround would look better painted white, but if you're happy with it, that's what matters.

Good job on the fade.

nice work. i respect that you put the effort into it but i don't think the flares match it since they are a solid colour. it's gonna look better with wider rubber under there.

props to your skills, i'd never be able to do that.

After looking at it a couple of times. Think what would truly set that paint off is this.

White grille surround would make the front flow a lot better. The chrome in between the white just looks off to me. Then some 32x11.5 on some 15x8 procomps would look badass.

yea, see that pic the flares look ok. maybe all it needs is a white or argent grill. argent would work moreso since the flares would match.

Yeah the white grill would probably match better but then the chrome bumper would look out of place and I would need to paint it black...lol I'm not too crazy about black wheels but I'm getting to hate aluminum wheels. They always end up with corrosion. I'm thinking about chrome...lol

Not really my old 2wd had chrome bumper and color matched surround. If you get some chromish style wheels it'll match nicely

As it currently sits which I still think it looks good with it.

Also with you having the chrome headlights it also matches. So it really wouldn't look out of place.
