Default Camouflage the Beast

Here are picture of my truck after I put the lift on and the 37 inch tires. At this point I was still stock on the axle and running 4.56 gears





During the middle of the axle swap, renamed the truck "The Beast" and it needed to sport some new colors. So I gathered the supplies necessary and started the process





After I got the base coat done, then I used stencils and started the layering process






Alternating patterns





And it finally started taking shape



Then after the axle swap was finished and the new fender flairs on this is the final result





The birth of the "Camo Beast"

Ditto what red said. I think you should find some 3500 badges!!

Well done and that takes some great time with the painting.

You really should have posted in this thread though: http://dodgeforum.com/forum/2nd-gen-...lowed-136.html

Where did you get your flares from, and did they require cutting the fenders?

Sharp Truck. I am suitably jealous.

Thanks for the compliments. I found the best price for the flairs on amazon and with Prime they were free shipping in two days. Yes, I had to cut them. they hung down too low for the 37's to clear. 35's would have been no problem. I picked up a plastic welding rig from harbor freight and plan to get some black plastic plates and seal the bottoms where I did the cutting. One thing I also did as part of the install was put some rivnuts in the truck so not all the fake screws were fake.



Every hole that does not have a fake screw in it, I marked to install a 1/4-20 Rivnut.







The fender flairs are on very solid. I have had the same kind on my 04Diesel and I hadn't like the way they flapped, just kinda lose. I plan on going back and doing the same to it. Just having too much fun with the Camo Beast now
