Wishing I had two-tone paint!

    I bought my truck used, and couldn't believe it when I found every single option I wanted on a Ram with only 12,000 miles and a year of warranty left (bench front seat, long bed, crew cab, hemi, Laramie trim, 20" wheels). I even love the Pearl White color which is kind of an antique white like the old Ford color Wimbledon White.

    Well, every single option except: two tone paint with silver on the rockers. I love the cowboy chrome look and want it to go 360 around the lower half of the truck & fender flares. You really don't see many 1500's with two tone paint, do you?

    I guess I could have it painted, or maybe wrapped. I just worry about the quality of the work and durability of the paint. Here it is on the day I bought it, before I swapped in the OEM wheel to wheel running boards. Anyone got Pearl White & Silver two tone?

    They sell chrome vinyl in wide sheets, maybe go that way?

    Not an option any more, but I prefer the 2 tone as well. Vinyl probably is your best bet at this point. It's only flares and a strip along the bottom from the factory when it was an option 20190404_145718.jpg

    For what it’s worth OP I think your truck looks better than if it was 2-tone. Has such a clean look the way it is. But I understand everyone has preferences.

    I’m da t what I’d do is vinyl wrap the bumper with paint matched vinyl and I think tour truck would be killer looking like that.

    As you’re seeing you can either paint it or vinyl wrap it. I’d probably choose vinyl so it leaves the option of going back to all-white if you ever wanted to.

    I do really like it the way it is, I think it's a great looking truck. I know the chrome delete option is really popular these days, but I just lean in the other direction. Maybe a wrap would be the way to go, if I don't like it we can just peel it off.

    That's the look, BWL!

    Yea I agree the vinyl would probably be the best bet.

    Oh I wouldn’t delete all the chrome. Just the bumpers.

    I think the grill/headlights/handles/mirrors/etc would still look really clean if they stayed chrome with the white paint.

    Bright White with Silver two-tone and White bumpers from BumperShellz... and a little flair with an Orange pin stripe.
