    I don't like too much chrome, but you have a sweet looking truck...so whether you decide to or not, I wouldn't worry too much!

    I am a chrome fan and really like the BLACK CHROME someone mentioned. My wife Dodge Magnum has a lot of black Chrome on it!!!

    With that being said, when I first got my truck I had a lot of chrome on it. Since I have been taking it off little by little (1st my N-Fabs, then my bull bar, then I blacked out my badges, and then I colormatched my grill blue). I've gotten a lot more positive comments since getting rid the chrome. It has been a nice change.

    Your truck looks awesome as is. Personally I like to stay busy and change things a lot.

    I like black over chrome, and i really like the black on your color truck.

    Request some help from the photoshoppers on this site, give you a visual.

    I like the looks of your truck i think that has inspired me to change. I just hate going through the transition where some will be black some chrome and ill have to save money for black wheels
