    It doesn't look too bad. Maybe put a little more black all around the truck and it will look a lot better?

    Yeah, i want to trade my bumper (rear) for a black one. Or I might just paint it black but im not sure if its going to turn out good since its chrome first. And im going to paint that piece under the license plate black as well.

    Do the headlights, tint windows and do both bumpers. Imagine this, only red instead of silver...........

    x2... but also complete the "rugged truck" look and de-gloss the finish like the grill appears to be. Maybe it's just the picture, though.

    My grill is too shiny, brand new waiting for it to weather-in. OP's grill looks satin or flat but the flares look shiny.

    Im looking into painting the Bottom of the Bumper black right under the Lic. plt. And getting bigger mud terrain tires to have that rugged look. What about popping out the tires as well? Does anyone know how to blacken the headlights?

    The flares are shiny. I just Photo shopped it to see what it would look like. Grill and rims and emblem are black.
