    The original colour will be A LOT easier and cheaper. No need to do the door jams, engine compartment...etc. I'm sure you don't have re-sale value in mind, but it will raise it a bit as apposed to flat black.

    Flat black looks good but in my experience it will get old quick and starts to fade unless it's protected. IMO it sort of gives a "cheap" look to the truck.

    on wheels and certain parts fine but flat black on cars/trucks looks cheap IMO...i've even seen late model benzes, range rovers, bmw's in flat black in my city and it looks horrible. it was in within the last couple years here but you will get tired of it...
