      Looks nice. I like your truck's Blue body color. I wish they offered that option for the Sport.

      Plastidip comes in a wide variety of colors. You could have a blue Sport if you really wanted one... :)

      Nice work you did. I've been contemplating about dipping my front grille as well for the past few months as I have a few cans of Plastidip. Like the blue as well. Is that a Kona Blue? Prior to getting my '11 Explorer, I originally was looking at the Kona Blue but none of the dealers in my area had it.

      Looks great chefryno! I've been wanting to plastidip my front grill, plus the chrome badges and "explorer" piece on the back. I'm new to last dip, and have been cautious to pull the trigger... Did the grill give you any problems? Any tips for doing it? Thanks!

      Amazing, I just realized that no matter what you think of someone else has the same idea.

      I have a white limited as well and was thinking of doing the exact same mode you just did.

      It looks really good. The 22's also complete the look.

      thanks guys,
      awmenard, that's cool im pretty happy with it, I figured if I didn't like it I could just go over the white with the black plasti dip, I used the plasti dip pearlizer over the white, definitely post pics of yours
      Txaggie, they are Giovanna kilis 22s, got them from craigslist a guy next town over from me bought them for an edge but the deal fell through and he never got the edge, the wheels were sitting in his basement for almost a year.

      Billyg900, for the rims if you don't mind me asking, how much did you pay for them?

      Just curious what 22's go for on the used market?
