Awesome dually!!! My two cents worth: Black lights front, white lights rear are perfect because of where you mounted them in relationship with the adjoining colors. If rears yellow, you can mask the bumper and light off and color-match paint to the truck. Under the hood you can do whatever you like to make it pop because you don't see under the hood when driving. The brake caliper covers painted look tacky to me and will be the focal point of anybody looking at your truck, instead of looking at your truck, because of how much they stick out! Every truck I have owned gets the inner rear fender wells painted flat black (especially duallys) , all wheels pulled off and everything gets painted flat black including suspension and brake parts to mainly make it all disappear to highlight your bitchin' wheels. Then you only see the shiny circular rotors as well as not having to figure out how to clean the painted caliper covers of dirt, brake dust, and heat damage. Then the same flat black treatment to front and rear hitches, frame rails, and exhaust to make them subtly disappear. All my duallys have immediately gotten front and rear mud flaps and full stainless running boards, for easy access to roof to wash and bed to use, as well as keeping it clean!!!! It also begins to resemble a bigger truck. I paint everything with hi-temp BBQ flat flat black! First mudhole you hit with a unprotected dually wipes out both sides, usually right after you wash it! My wife and I do a lot of camping with our LQ horse trailer and a number of people with other duallys want to know why mine seems cleaner than theirs. All my years in the car business; detail, detail, detail! Stand back and look at your vehicle and see what you don't like, then fix it.
