    In light of Kiwi asking us to give this site some love, here's what I have going on truck wise.
    I have a 2008 Ram, BigHorn, 4x4, long bed with the 5.7 Hemi, club cab. I have been contemplating most of the winter about painting it Black and Tan circa 1980's. Black on top tan in the middle and black on the bottom. My dilemma is where to break the colors. How far down the bedside from the top and how far up from the bottom. The truck came with a chrome panel all along the bottom edge of the body that comes up about 6". Suggestions? here's a pic of the paint i'm talking about and it is available from PPG. The truck is silver now with a grey interior. Blah...

        Everything above door handles black and below the body line on the bottom black. I think that would look good.

        But that may not workout right with the tailgate.

            Hey @Ghostrider 67 That black and tan truck you posted above is as sweet as it gets. Is that yours?

              I think that was an example of the look he is trying to achieve. :)
