    I like the contrast better. I am biased though I got silver and black. :)

    Leave it, the white gives good contrast for your light bar.

    Leave it the way it is, looks badass! I would think it would look funny and maybe to many different shades of black, i could be wrong tho. Only way to find out is to try. haha

    I say go black for sure. Definitely just go with one of Socks valance vinyls though. If you dont like it, it would be a much easier fix then repainting your valance again.

    IMO leave it white as it serves as a good contrast between skid and offroad bar.

    Okay everyone, I decided on leaving it white for the time being. I've been debating on getting an All-Pro bumper with a winch possibly in the future.:rolleyes:

    I'm having the same dilema, (well not yet, avid bar on the way) the only option i have thought of to paint the valance but keep some contrast is to use some colored bedliner, a medium to dark grey. Just an idea! that being said, your truck is sick as is! if you had any grey anywhere else i would say spray it grey, but you dont. so i vote White.

    I painted mine with plasti-dip. Clean the valance, tape it off and spray. Mine has held up really well! It hasn't chipped or peeled away. Plus if you dont like the way it looks, peel it off.
