    I don't fully understand the parts you chose to plasti dip. But Rad reds need to stick togather...

    Why not just paint the entire truck black?

    Added some rigid dually flush mount lights in the grille, really surprised with the output from 2 small lights, they're awesome.

    Nice Truck! I've actually been searching for a while to see if anyone has done the entire front end and hood with Plastidip. How is it holding up? Did you also use the clear coat on it as well?

    I have Rad Red 08 and the front end is starting to look rough. Will eventually get it painted. It's got quite a few chips in the paint. Hood scoop is also loosing clear coat and I dipped it just last week.

    Put some new headlights in, much clearer.

    They are just as bright if not brighter than my stocks but I ordering an HID kit to throw in as well.

    Thanks! The front bumper only had a few coats so after a year its got some small holes. Hood and everything's good though, no clear coat on any of it either.
