    I'd do flat black, unless I wanted them to be less noticeable. Then I'd remove them.

    Looks like you have more flat and semi gloss black stuff on your truck so I would say go with flat.

    I did flat with glossy on my fuel door. I found that in some light it blends into the truck and it's hard to tell that it's the same color or not. The emblems may be different because they're raised more and they aren't flat like the body of the truck is. Try flat, if you don't like it then put some gloss on it. It's your truck, it's your choice.
