Maybe you could use diagonal striping and incorporate a rather angry looking killer bee logo of some sort? I think that would look bad a$$ and go with your truck very well

I purchased my stripe kit from PHOENIX GRAPHIX and they look great. The price and selection is very good. They will also make custom designs and all very affordable. I chose the 1969 Super Bee Stripe Kit, cause I didn't want to go with the Rumble Bee stripes. There was never a Dodge Ram truck, of any year, that was a Super Bee model.

I don't seem to like any stripes other than the one I want to replace after 6 years. Im sooo leaning towards just throwing a Rumblebee Stripe on it. Think it's a bad idea?

I don't think your truck would look bad no matter what you do

I think if you can replace "Rumble Bee" with "Killer Bee" go for it.

You should worry about the color difference from paint fade when removing old stripe.
Pick something that will hide it all..
