    2016 Ram Build

    Bought my truck brand new on my 30th Bday on Oct 22. First new vehicle ever. Figured it'd start a build thread as I've already done a lot to it.

    Day I bought it.

    That's a really great looking ride. I like that grill allot. Wonder if I could get a grill like that for my 03.

    I have a set of Westin HDX drop steps on order. Also have some color matched OEM flares to put on once the weather is decent.

    I would love to figure out a way to get led pods in place of my fogs but nobody makes brackets for 2016s. I'll eventually install flush mount pods into my rear bumper for reverse lights.

    Also been throwing around the idea of vinyl wrapping the bumpers and rocker panels gray for an outdoorsman look and to protect the rockers from rock chips. But can't decide if I want to keep the chrome and clear vinyl the rockers or wrap it all in gray.

    You should vinyl wrap your grille. I did on my Big Horn and I love it! Your truck looks like Brilliant Black in the pictures, if that's the color then 3M Metallic Black Vinyl matches about as close as you could possibly hope for to the paint.
