'16 w 75k & still love'n it

Post by WYRam » Mon Sep 02, 2019 5:48 pm

Hey all,

I don't know why it took me so long to find my wagon, 2016 and it was my first Ram truck. From a Titan wanna be a truck, right into a 3/4 ton Ram wagon. One of my best decisions ever! Even if she was dressed like hooker and hanging out in a parking lot, I looked underneath her one time and we been together ever since. I did change her look a little tho.
Here's a before / after, not perfect yet but then what is

That is a Colorado sunset providing the dramatic light effect.

Glad to be here, next stop - Locker control bypassImage

Looks good! What did you do to deal with the front chrome?

Lol, that shit was atrocious, in my eyes any way. Thats all vinyl wrap material covering the chrome. It's all still the original front end, I just wrapped that rascal. It took me far more time than money, and is not perfect on close inspection but is seamless. I cant see the imperfections unless i remove the grill, so outta sight....

The product is Avery matte black on everything, except the bumpers are Avery satin black. The grill slats and hood stripe are 3M matte green.

Traffic moves around here and the vinyl has some pebble wear on it but the vinyl has protected the underneath finishes almost 100%. Not that it'll ever look like it did before but its a great base for a first class finish when complete.

diy the install, cost can be less then $90. (Both bumpers, grill, bug guard & hood stripe)

Sexiest chrome I've ever seen was covered in black vinyl!


And thanks for props!
