    I'm shocked that no one chimed in with tips in the 3 minutes between your initial post and then your second post telling people to come on. Maybe everyone is busy trying to search for pictures of other peoples trucks to see what your truck looks like. Wow, TW really let you down. :rolleyes:

    In my opinion, stick with black on the armor. Anything else would look weird.
