    Do you have any other plans for accent colors like Emblem overlays, stripes or changing the color of the logo's between the tailights or anything. Cause that may have an influence on what color the Calipers could be. Ultimately it's your decision but a touch of red couldn't hurt. JMO

    With those nice polished wheels the black or red would stand out great. Silver would blend. My 99 is black with gray interior. I am doing all accents in gray. My wheels are the tourqe thrust style with the gray spokes. Since I already have gray on the wheels I went with black calipers so it would stand out. That is just what I did.

    Either black or red is nice. I have red ones but, I have some red on my car. If you wanna stay with the blacked out look, go with black and then put some silver, gray or white decals on them. Same color as your 'RAM AIR' decal on the hood.

    Would look good IMO

    If you plan on having red accents, get red calipers. Otherwise get black.

    Could you link us to the kit you're getting?

    Here's the link, this is for the 13" rotors before I order them I'm going to give them a call and see if they have a 14" kit that will bolt right up.

    I kind of like the blacked out look not going to change the colors. Thanks for the input.

    btw, your paint job is awesome looking. Is that a repaint or do you just use Zaino?
