This is just a super quick one to see if this is what you are looking for. I didn't knwo if you wanted them "black chrome" like you see on many wheels or if you wanted them to be painted looking.

Let me know and I can do up a better one for ya.

Cool, can your software black out the mirrors and bumpers etc?

I'm leaning towards either charcoal w black or a darker green

yeah, charcoal would look cool!  Like that dark gray paint on the new Dodge Charger, its called Dark Titanium Metallic.

I think this close to what you are looking for. I blacked out the grill as well, if you don't like it, I can put it back to original. I'm working on a dark green, have to run out for a bit for a family get together.

I know you don't want blue, but this looks very similar to the blue found on the new Silverado's..I like it :)

I used photoshop 6.0 for all of the pics, I also have paint shop pro but am still learning on that program.

What about flat olive drab (one of the darker variations) or flat black?  With black wheels and a blacked out grille it would look wicked.  I'd like to try a flat color from these guys someday.

I hate flat, I am really digging the charcoal and blacked out chrome though.... I think it's a toss up between green and the charcoal. I still haven't seen a shade of green though that I like.

This is kind of a Money green, not one of my picks...but thought I would throw it up here.


This is by far one of my favorite colors so far (besides the charcoal), really fits this truck with the blacked out chrome. Notice I cleared the marker light on the fender...I thought it looked good so I left it..lol


I can do any variation of the colors you want...just let me know.
