    So, the all black look is commonly referred to as "Murdered", well my truck is SWB so i call the look "murdered smurf". So i already have the BHLM Ebay lights and the Grill craft grill. I want to smoke the tail lights and fog lights. but, what do yall think about the lower valence and black stripe? is it too much? or looks mean? I would probably have it done with vinyl. but will probably cost me a few bucks so before i do. I thought i would photoshop it. its not the best photoshop but you get the idea.

    The kinda looking like a dodge was my feeling too. Maybe just the lower valence. I definitely plan on doing wheels and tires with a lift. begining of next year.

    I'd look better if the hood scoop was blacked out with the stripe.

    Instead of the rather large black stripe, maybe two smaller ones.

    Instead of the stripe on the top, how about some stripes on the sides - similar to the older Toyota pickups.

    Like these:

    You should use Photoshop and play around a bit.

    if anything just do the EVO Mod...(paint the plastic valence black)....

    the rest of the black racing stripe all the way back look out of place IMHO...

    LOL!

    I never like the stripe over the middle. It looks like a really big truck wheel ran over it. I just saw one on a different truck today, double black stripe on white, and it looked like a paint striper ran over it. :laugh:
