Most like the black--I LIKE SHINY CHROME--and it is easier to clean -shows less dirt!
Guess I am just LAZY

Here's mine. I like it so far. Chrome vs black-imageuploadedbytapatalk1342739638.647780.jpg
I personally think black trucks need chrome accents since most black wheels are matte. And shiny black trucks doesn't go with matte black rims.

And the murdered out look is too played out in my opinion

Murder it! That's my opinion. Sometimes people can go overboard with blacking out everything on their trucks, and it can look bad, I'll agree.
I painted my stock rims and chrome rear bumper black and I think the truck looks so much better. It just depends on what you like, and the look you're going for. The only chrome left on my truck is the grill surround, and it kinda bugs me, but its a unique truck to my area and I don't think it looks bad, so I'm in no rush to do away with it. If I find a good deal on a color matched grill, or a shop that will color match, then maybe I'll go completely chrome free.

I am currently in the process of blacking out my badges on my MGM Taco and it looks so sweet. So there's my vote.
