Go for it, you can always repaint them. I painted mine blue a few months back to be different, and I like it!

after im done ill take pictures of the truck clean too

still to go:
grille
engine cover
badges
rims

Just as an added opinion, I think the orange looks kick ass. I agree with above on getting rid of the chrome. Having seen the front badge change, I bet the rest are going to look awesome as well.
