    Sup all, i plan on getting some All-Pro armor within the near future and i wanted to get some thoughts/opinions on a color to paint them when the time comes. The truck already has black wheels and i think having EVERYTHING black is a little tacky looking. My first thoughts were maybe a medium/dark grey then i got to thinking about kind of a tan/brownish color kinda similar to the striping down the side shown below (which was removed when that poor window/half the cab got replaced). Thoughts, questions, problems, opinions, ideas, whatever. Let me know what you guys think!

    Go to the photoshop request thread in the photography forum and they can give you an idea.

    If it were me, I'd keep the bumper, sliders, etc all black.
