Input on new look

Thinking about changing the look of the truck. Feel free to comment/hate lol
Plus custom black grille, designing my own headlights, and color matching surround. Also debadging truck and color matching f250 badge.

I am really not a fan of blacking stuff out, if anything I say PTM the grill surround and maybe bumpers. Paint the frame and undercarriage gloss black

I think your truck would look good either the way it is, or if you go black paint the grill and bumpers to match the base color. Then the black lights and wheels will pop better.

Do you have pics of the undercarriage painted?

I want to paint mine since I spent 6 months in the midwest last year, and it took most of the paint off the undercarriage of my truck.

Did you have someone do it professionally, or is it pretty easy to do on your own? Also, what brand and type of paint did you use?

Black wheels are sooo played out. The chrome looks very nice on your truck however you should ptm the grill surround.

I'll get some photos for you tomorrow when theres some light out TX. I did all the prep work myself just cleaned the hell out of the undercarriage and removed the old undercoating. Then I scuffed up everything so that the paint would stick. After that my buddy used his spray gun that he has and did it for me. I just used magic gloss black tractor paint, nothing special. Came out pretty nice though considering I don't have painting experience or anything like that.
