Grills and headlights

So, I'm just beginning to put together a list for my truck, and I've come across the raptor style grill, which is definitely going on the list. However, I've come to ask your opinion on headlight mods. Should I color match with white, or black them out?

Here's the grill I'm thinking of

Black headlights and white satoshi. If you're gonna get a raptor grill you better pay Craig soon. I waited six months for my satoshi because of the line you start off in. He builds the raptors more sparingly soooooo.....you should pay soon haha.

IMO blacked out headlights with some white in them (accents or the shroud) would look best. All white on white is like the all black on black builds. There is less contrast and it blurs together. Black headlights with some white accents gets my vote.

It's different, I'm not sure it's better though. To each their own. I ALMOST did mine white when I went through them. Glad I did black though.

I like the BLHM with my white satoshi... I got TACOMA fab'd up to put on the front of my satoshi and I painted them black... that way it isnt an eyesore but classy.... pics on my build to come with the letters this weekend.

White and black = Stormtrooper.... the ladies dig the stormtroops
especially when you have a trooper helmet shifter

The white is pretty cool... but i don't thank that will get you into the stormtrooper club

wait, so if I do my headlights white and a satashi (however you spell it), can I be an "anti stormtrooper"?

I say black, the white on white is just a little much I think.

Sorry 357...I think that pushed me over the edge to black. Not to say it's too horrible, but it's too much white up front to me...especially with a big bold TACOMA staring you in the face...


Which brings up another dilemma...Tacoma, or Takoma....choices choices.
