Default Camo paint job?

I own a 2002 Xtreme and the paint is looking pretty shabby. I laid black carbon fiber vinyl on the hood and roof but now the peeling is coming down the sides.

I'd like to do a desert digital camouflage on it but the Xtreme is not exactly a trail ride. It sits lower than a regular, has a body kit look, a chrome grill...definitely a Houston city street vehicle.

Wonder if it would look goofy in Camo, thoughts?

Honestly I think you would be ok with a digital camo but not a traditional camo. A nice set of wheels would help as well.

you can probably find that design in a vinyl wrap also. that way if you dont like it you can always peal it back off

Wheels, maybe, but you don't know the whole story. See the new grill pic :-/
