IMO With a red truck it won't look good. Red needs the black accents to break up the color. Red's a tough color cause to much can over do it quick. I think red with black wheels and accents look clean.
You could see if someone could photoshop it for you so you can get a def. idea of how it will look.

I have seen several white trucks wihth them painted and they look sic. It is on my list to do as well. I have checked with several body shops in my neck of the woods and they are hesitant to paint them, they say it won't stick.

I had bought one of the streeth scene smooth cowls for my 6.4 but it got totaled before I could put it on. But its a real nice looking piece but I have nothing to put it on now.

I have had both my fathers (white) and mine (black) painted and they both look great. both wiper cowls are ford OEM. just make sure your hood gap is good. I learned the hard way.

That's gonna look nice, IMO I would keep it black. May look to lowrider'ish if you go orange on the cowl as well, if that makes sense.

A lot of people thought our trucks looked a like, besides the color, that's the only thing that's the same. haha
I don't want to clutter up and hi-jack OP thread, I'm going to put together a build thread soon.

Damn...missed that thread and thats my house. LOL
To answer your shock question....red KYB monomax stock length replacement in the front...same brand but use a 99-04 4wd front shock in the back. 3" shorter then a stock rear shock and much firmer. That's what I run and it's great.

It looks good imo. Here's mine.





I didn't do it the "correct" way though. I didn't smooth it out or anything like that. I just painted it. In the right light you can see a slight difference between it an the hood because one is textured and one isn't but it's not enough for me to give a sh!t. I've got better things to do with my time.
