    Paint them silver!!! lol I dunno man, do you have a color theme for your truck or for the interior alone? I have a black truck with a lime green sockmonkey zombie response unit trd decal and lime green grill emblem so I did my interior black and lime green.

    Ordering some Wet Okoles with the GB next week, black with full piping in lime green. A lot of people don't like the lime green but I do and think it goes with the whole zombie theme.
