I have a little story.

I find marbles all the time when I am digging with an excavator.
The guys can't believe I see them as well as I do.
But I don't see the marble, I see colors that don't belong.

White, blue, red, green, yellow and white are not dirt colors.

Out in the woods that blue will stand out like a bill board.

Not really I saw this collor combo on a bad @$$ samiri up on the rubicon a few years back pattern was way different though. I guess we don't have to tell him i stole his idea

you can beat the krylon camo paint, unfortunally its only offered in woodland (i think)
the stuff really lasts, no clear needed, i painted my truck a long time ago, and it stands up
to mud, trees and everything else

here is the picture i was lookin for before when my wheeler wasnt built yet, it
show the pattern better, i didnt use a template, just put down a green base, and freehanded it

Dont worry about a template. Just pick tiger stripe or standard and start making shapes and lines. When i redo the camo on my truck, im going to cut out leaf designs and just cover the truck like that

Dodge/Cummins is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
I have always just free-handed mine, it's easy to change something if you don't like the looks of it.
I don't know if you are actually trying to "hide" your truck but I only do mine camo because it hides boby damage (dents) well and it's easy to touch-up. Plus if you have to go wrecking-yard-hunting for a body panel it don't matter what color ya' get. Heck you can sometimes put a door, bed or fender on that's a little off from the exact body style (years) and nobody even notices because the lines are so broken-up.
I've had compliments on my camo-jobs on my "wheelers" but unfortunately it's almost exclusively from guys so if you're single it's no good for pickin' up chicks.
