    Seems like it would blend the grille in better if they were black.

    Tough call, never seen eyelids not colormatched. I have to say leave it white, black will make it look like your truck is wearing black eyeliner.

    I was going to say leave them the body color, but after seeing the black grill I think black would look better. Like said above, try it, and peel it if you dont like it.

    So can anyone verify that the 2011's are the same as the 05-? for the eye lids?

    eBay. T-Rex 2 style.After looking at the photoshop, I still think leave it white and like ryanjboitin says, paint grille white. Black doesn't flow with the rest of the truck. But do leave the bottom valence black if you decide to whiten the grille. Which ever you decide, do what makes you happy.

    Do the lids affect the lighting at all? And are there any laws against them?
