Here is a set I saw on here. But this is plasti-dip, not paint. It holds up pretty good an will peel right off when you're done with it.

From what I've read some people have had it on their vehicles for awhile with no problems. And it some do occur, you can just clean em and spray some more plasti-dip over the spot.

I'd give it a try before comitting to paint.

Painted mine with Plastidip. Seems pretty durable. Leaves no trace if you ever want to remove it. Heres some pics, no real good side shot pics though..

i plastidip'd my grill and lower bumber cover and it looks good(sorry no pics yet), i thought about doing my lariat wheels also, but thought it might look stupid since my truck is black. Yours looks great! Where did you get your headlights?

thanks

Thanks, the 05 headlights came from ebay seller "auto_lighthouse", were only $105 a set. I'd black out the wheels on your truck would look great i'd think.

It looks pretty good, make sure you use a lot of even coats. do a few coats give it hr and then do it again. i had the chrome and gray grill so i used almost 1 can on the grill it self. Dont do it with the grill on the truck :psn:

good luck!

i might try my wheels next, to bad its freakin snowing already!

I've got a spare xl grill so I may try the plastidip stuff and see how it looks
it might not look much different on a xl grille, maybe a little darker
