I hate the gold bowties. I did the black spray paint option and it turned out good, but it was the same as everyone elses, so i ordered some silver carbon fiber vinyl. Turned out good. Only thing i don't like is you can't see the carbon fiber detail until you get close, it just looks like a plain grey from a distance. I think i need to look at some different vinyl options and come up with something unique

Maybe a completely different color and you could try Plasti-Dip which is something that is inexpensive and durable, yet very easily removed if you don't like it.

Otherwise, a search on EBAY will come up with a lot of different vinyl overlays to choose from. Something like Red, White and Blue American flag would really stand out.

I just used some 3m 1080 Carbon Fiber wrap on my emblems, came out pretty good and you can see the pattern a good distance away.
I had black plasti-dip on mine. After three and a half years, I now notice some small spots on the front one where it is peeling. I have a sheet of the carbon fiber 3m vinyl and will probably give that a shot. I prefer something that would stand out a bit better, but I have the carbon fiber and certainly dont want that crappy burnt orange yellow color.

yeah, ive seen all the plasti dip etc, just looking for something different. The vinyl i did isn't the 3M brand, maybe thats why it doesn't stand out. I'll figure out something thats not so common. black CF looks good, but a lot of people have it, which is why i want something different. might try a 2 tone vinyl on vinyl layer

I was going to mention that you can buy color matched bowties or have stock ones painted to match your truck. I have seen a few, and they look sharp, but they are pricey.
