That is a beautiful rig. Actually before I bought my 2018, we were looking at a black night train edition, but when we showed up to the dealership it sold and the closest they had was a white rebel… I had never even heard of them, but I’ve never looked back

your truck is awesome! I just gotta say
Keep on truck’n

Thanks! Yours looks great as well! Always something more to do 😈. I actually powder coated the wheels and skid plate black when I was replacing the suspension.

How much did powder coating run you?
I’m fortunate enough to have access to a shop where I was able to do it myself and only pay for the paint itself. I was quoted at $600 however $100 each wheel and $200 for the skid plate.
I will say it was not much of a task especially since most of the wheel is already black. If you want to go the DIY route I would not go with the plastidip. No offense to anyone who’s done it but it looks odd and cheap up close.

The pic I have of the wheels and tires is
I agree it doesn’t look great up close. That’s why I don’t let anyone near my truck 😎
Had no idea, your truck looks great! Was not talking any smack! I have had people I know that have used wheel paint from the auto parts store and having pretty great results, particularly with the flat black.

I realize you weren’t talking smack. That’s why it was fun.
Needed something new to do so smoked the grill letters. Also relocated rear auxiliary lights to throw more light while still being somewhat hidden. View attachment 32395 View attachment 32398

found a blacked out trailer break light for it too.
