    that looks sick the way it is. white on white is too much imho. do your headlight that rig would be killer.

    mabey paint the chrome ring black but i think it looks great asis.

    DCLB matches with 6" not always but the DCSB with 6" makes the bed look tiny

    All sorts of crap
    Going with white wheels would be different, but it may look puss.

    Its something I've considered as well, but could never convince myself to do it. Most agree that your truck looks good as is, now its just a matter of if you are sick of the way it looks and want something different. For this reason alone it may be worth a shot. You can always rattle can them white and if you likey have them powder coated. If not rattle can them bad boys black again and call her done.

    Leave the wheels as-is. They're fine looking.
