Color match was great on the camper. Silver Spruce. Blacked out the grill and badges. Tinted the front windows along with light smoke on the headlights, turn signal on mirror caps and rear back up lights. ERG black matte vent visors. Added Rhino Rack feet & bars and bed lined my old Thule basket. Tuff skins lettering. Tail pipe extension. Had bumpers wrapped in khaki army green and will add that same color to hood line and lower door panels. I think I’m done for now...

Nice!!! What did you use to black out the grill and wrap the bumpers? Looking for a similar look but in white.

I plastic dipped the grill and badges and film wrapped the bumpers. Cost about $800 and that includes the tint.

Looks great!! I want to cover up most of the chrome and black out the badges on mine. Was going to go with steel bumpers but if I can find someone that can match the Oxford white then doing the bumpers may be the way to go.

Does the shell mess with your cameras at all or can you just not see anything in the bed camera? I'm considering an overland type shell but don't want to mess with my cameras or anything.

I don’t have that camera. I just have the tailgate camera. That top mounted rear brake light is covered by the camper top, so I’d assume it renders the camera useless. There is a upper brake light installed on the rear of the camper shell. Maybe an aftermarket camera would work there??

That setup looks great! Two questions. 1) What color are the tuff skinz? Matte black or something else? Hard to tell for me. 2) How are you liking the color now that you’ve had it for a little while? My SS is currently on the line and this 3 month wait has been excruciating! Just hoping I made the right decision on color. From the looks of yours, I think I did.

Tuff skins are matte black.
I love this color better than any color I’ve ever had. I’ve had 9 trucks in my life in different colors and this one by far looks the best and I get the most compliments on it. Also, Ford is not offering this color for 2021 so those of us that have them now will have a true gem in the future.

Another question on the tuff skins. I like the fact that the super duty has a stamped tailgate which is different from the old style stick on badging which hold dirt and dust behind them. You wash and when you hose all kind of swill and grit will come out from behind them. With that being said, do the tuff skins hold dust behind them or do something similar, or do they seal fairly well and don’t make the washing process harder? I’m planning on being and old school wash and wax guy. I hate to take a feature I like and purposely ruin it. I hope this question makes sense.

Looks good, unfortunately my ARE Z series was damaged when I went to get it installed, so it got shipped back to the factory for repairs🤬
