Camo paint looks weird on a stock vehicle IMO. The camo paint looks more legit on trail rigs and such.

Geewiz, the only thing that's missing is the 22" rims or maybe even spinners! WTF?

It might me functional. They do that on quite a number of hunting trucks here in Florida. More importantly, however, perhaps maybe, just MAYBE it's what the guy wanted at the time. People repaint their rigs all the time. What's laughable is when idiots that DON'T own that vehicle comment on how silly other people are for not painting it how they would have.

I don't like that camo on that rig, at all. Now if it were something like a Real Tree camo, or Mossy Oak, I think it would look pretty BA.

Wow thats terrible. And to SDT03GCOverland, I agree with what you said to a point.. but its not like were talking **** about a perfectly fine paint job that alot of people would do, this paint job is horrible, I mean who in there right mind would pay for someone to do that to their vehicle. In my opinion it killed every bit of the resale value of that vehicle.
