....



Anyway I think you should paint the bumpers and the lower part black! Would look better then DSG in my opinion.

And that look reminds me of Grigg's truck.

I'd paint them white to match the truck and leave it alone. It looks better more monochromatic. Also you really need to paint your stupid white painted torsion bar mount cover things and your axle cover black. Relax with the painting.

If you want to go two-tone get a sheet of vinyl and so the whole lower part of the truck, flares, and bumpers black. You could do it in plastidip to. See how it looks.

Looks good but the DSG bottom will make it look even better!

black wheels with a DSG bottom dont work well together. Its why I didn't go with black on the exploder.

example of white+dsg.

DON'T paint the flares white. That's textured plastic and its not worth it. Paint the bumpers (front and rear) and the top of the side mirrors DSG to give the truck a little bit of a DSG theme (u could do the rockers too). Look at the white ranger in the R-F.com banner on the side. That's what I'm talking about, that truck looks sweet. And do DSG, NOT black...DSG will look way better than black for your truck and it'll hide dirt better. And you won't have to paint the flares or valence.



If youd rather paint the flares white and go in that direction that's cool too but youd have to get the smooth paintable ones first.
yeah, not worth it
