    I think your truck already looks badass the way it is. Your black skid plate and light bar are a good contrast on the white, but even with valence colored in it's not so bad.

    Not enough.
    It looks good white. But if you do decide to paint it you could use some bedliner like I did. Just sand a bit to ease the texture. Mine hasn't chipped at all after about 4 months

    Again, thanks everyone for your input. I'm leaning more towards leaving it white but I might try socks vinyl decal and see how it turns out if I decide to try it black but keep your inputs coming! I would like to hear more stories out there.;)

    No problem man! Good idea with the vinyl since it doesn't have to be permanent.

    although i sockmonkeyed mine with the black vinyl, i like the contrast already with the black skid plate and bar......as is looks great, but like others have said, at least if you go vinyl you can always take it off.


    Side note.....your skid plate looks awesome.

    I was going to PS it for you but someone beat me to it. I think either or looks good at this point so I say go for it since its reversable unless its cost prohibitive, you can always take it off if you hate it.
