    There's a guy somewhere on TW that did color matched red, and like the white on white, it doesn't look that good. I did BHLM with my projector shrouds color matched, and think it adds a lot while maintaining contrast. [​IMG]

    I think I saw that and maybe a blue one too...looks strange to me, white or black are the only colors I'd consider matching.

    Love your red accents.

    Order has been put in for a black one. I've decided subtlety is probably best for this truck. Plus the white text kinda messes with the stormtrooper look.

    Ok, so I know this is a very old thread, but I have a similar grille to the one OP posted with the white letters. I also did a white skid plate on my bumper. I would like straight opinions...too much white? Should I black out the letters, skid plate, or both? TIA for any input.

    That white looks great and contrasts nicely with your terrain. Up here I wouldn't want all white (blends in with snow) but it looks perfect for the desert.
