    if you go with the black grill it would probably be a good idea to go black with the mirrors and door handles aswell.

    Chrome. You dont want to overkill your truck with everything black. Looks great how it is.

    leave it chrome and just paint the Billet grill black! It would look way better! A little bit of chrome is nice but all black is over kill and just looks too plain IMO.

    x2! that's what I did, check on customtacos, those guys like chrome. I traded a guy straight across my chrome mirror for his black mirrors, and then he threw in free door handles.
