I'm agreeing with your father-in-law on this one Mike. Don't do it.. lol. Period.

If your paint looked as scratched and crappy as mine then maybe. But your truck is 2yrs old and barely has any scratches.
What if it turns out terrible?? Then what, gunna fork out the $$$ for new paint? No thx.
At least your two-tone is silver whereas mine is brown.. WTF was ford thinking.

yeah, you're definitely right. the more i have thought about it, the more i'm thinking its a bad idea. especially after talking to you and bud, i think i'm just going to hold off. i'll just eventually get a new paintjob on it somewhere down the road.
and yours doesnt look bad. (but i do think yours would be sick if it was solid black)
i found a thread on here where a guy bought a tan 2011 and added black rockers to it. i couldnt believe it..i mean guys pay big money to get rid of those and he freakin added them on a brand new 6.7

I wouldn't write it off just like that.... Jesse from MBRP did it to his white/tan 08 and it actually came out looking pretty nice, now BenBou00 has that truck and he's said it's still holding up relatively well. He had it professionally done, and did white line-x instead of the black so his truck was all white. There's another guy on here with a black truck that also had it done, can't remember what his name is, but I think he's somewhere up North. And there's one more that is a grey truck with the black bottom... They all look pretty good.

I'd never try doing that stuff myself, it's messy and sticky and it would be much better to spend the money to have it done.

i def think you shouldnt do it yourself.... if you do decide on doing it def have a professional that has done rocker panels already... i have heard people paying up to 1k to get them done.....

do you just want the two tone effect? if so why not just have it painted?

i want to get rid of the two tone effect. i want it all black. and whether i have it professionally done or get the whole thing painted, i dont have the $$$ to do it. so i think i'm just going to hold off on it and just wait until i can afford to get a new paintjob.
