Red or Black stripes

I was looking to add some racing stripes to my SRT. It is currently white and has red SRT badges and the 6.4L Hemi badge which is also red.

Black and white is classic. However red would go with the accents.

Thanks for the opinions!

Re: Red or Black stripes

I suggest ...

Black for a formal look, or
Red for a sporty, jump out at you, look.

It's your Jeep & your choice.

Re: Red or Black stripes

I'd suggest red mirrors as a subtle accent over doing any stripes.

Here is an alternative to strips. I've accented the hood scoops with silver, to match the wheels. Gets a lot of compliments.

Re: Red or Black stripes

Actually.......Upon further studying of your front end, the only bit of red is your lower SRT badge. I gotta wonder how it would look to have all your rings painted red to match the "SRT"? You kind of already have that look going on in the back, so maybe do the same up front....

Re: Red or Black stripes

Lower rings in red as well, leave the grill as is. Maybe a light tint on the headlamps. Otherwise looks incredible, man!

Re: Red or Black stripes

Thanks for the compliments. I'm thinking red for the lower rings as well.

I just sent my grill rings to a local body shop to get painted black today and should have them back Friday.

Stripes are holding up great. Yes they were vinyl. Pricing would be no comparison between Canada and the USA.
