Are you gonna run white wheels on a black truck? Ballsy move if so. If you did a few other white accents I think it could work

Please keep us posted. I'm looking to get rid of the RAM on the tailgate as well. Either this, or fill in all 19 holes and respray it. I totally debadged the truck yesterday and got rid of that nasty sticker in front of the hood scoop. It looks way better.

Totally agree on the black hood decal, one of the first to go!

From what we found, the T wont covers the holes and you would have to elongate the X to be taller. Then it does not look right. Been working on this for a while now. The RAM on tailgate is already to big, making TRX bigger to cover some holes?

Even if you do this, how do you resolve the "T"? And "X" would have to be taller.

TRX emblem, letters are right next to each other. RAM are separate. Thus you have to elongate TRX emblem to cover some holes, which looks off.

Try to accent line to cover it up

The only way I have found to do it and keep the scale is to do a full badge emblem that covers holes with surround or weld holes and repaint. Using drivers dash badge as reference. Colors can vary

If I am going to go thru all that trouble and it not look right, just going to make HellRex tailgate 3rd brake light. Would make it shape of OEM RAM horn tailgate logo. Just take the viper 3rd tail light and 3D scan it and scale it up and make exterior match RAM Horns

I just finished making these.

Tried to incorporate all the hellcat features and still keep the T-Rex features. It not as easy as you would think.
  • Hellcat exaggerated teeth.
  • Hellcat open mouth.
  • Hellcat rear jaw line and teeth
  • Hellcat squinting eye
  • Hellcat general curvatures with anatomically correct Trex jaw, nose, eye bumps and neck.
  • Trex had giant neck and muscles to drive the jaws, and skull was 6 feet long and neck was foot long. Where a hellcat or sabre tooth tiger only had 18 jaw and very small neck.
  • Matched it exactly to TRX bumper, side molding and emblem colors.
  • Top off head fits right under RAM "A" opening on tailgate.

On matte black hood scope air entry area with matte black:

The designing is not easy and then you will find the fit wont be right either, either to big or small, depending area you want to put it.

Let me know what you come up with. I am out of ideas.
Good Luck

Those look awesome on front doors, replace RAM on front door. Just blue tape the top of ram and front side of RAM emblem for re-application. My only warning is its more of that grey color on the front grille emblems, with gloss black interior. If you want it all to match matte black color, pull the black protective shipping foam off and plasti dip the matte black its an exact mat.

So if you want to pair them with matte black HellRex logo, they wont match. And they dont match the rest of the trucks matte black stuff.

But the grey front makes it more visible. On black truck everything that does not match is so much more noticeable.

Forgot to add earlier. If your willing to fill the hole on tailgate. My emblem/badge guy can make this to larger scale and give it that OEM factory look with open interior letters. I think this will look the best. I guess its just paint.

You see how the light plays tricks on the color of the TRX rear tailgate emblem. The outside is lighter than matte black, dark grey and the interior is inside letter is gloss black.

Hey Okie, where did you get the fuel cap? Looks bad ass!! Thanks and Cheers.

Very nice, I assume that the 3D open letter emblem off tailgate, just colored matte black? It gives it that stock TRX look with adding another color on mud flap to attract you to it.

thanks

Do you have a picture of it after removing the black sticker in front of the hood scoop?
