    Thinking about getting a new grill.

    I can't decide what to do!

    I have a rad red 08 DC LB

    Should I go chrome grill, lights and chrome wheels?

    Or Black grill, BHLM, and Black rims?

    Also I saw this grill anyone know where I could buy it? Might look good painted black or as is.. Definitely different!

    So let me know what your opinion is, I wanna get it done soon. Picture examples are welcome!

    The other question I have after looking through countless posts is it seems like everybody with a black grill paints the outside rim to match the body paint.

    Anybody seen a bhlm, black grillcraft or satoshi with a chrome rim instead? Or maybe a black rim?
    Or would it look dumb..

    Black accents and chrome / aluminum wheels is OK

    I have the plain black bumpers, overfenders, and door handles with the silly gray grill. The only thing the grill matches is the stupid pin stripe, which I am not fond of either. I can't decide whether to go color-matched (silver), paint it satin black to match the bumpers, etc., or just leave it the way it is.

    If I go black, then I'll want to black out my emblems. And then I'll have to do a roof rack. Then the wheels will bug me.

    It would never end. GAH. I'm no help.

    That's what I feel like I would end up with. If I do black grill, I'll hate my wheels, then I'll have to do my headlights, and then I'll have to do my emblems, and then my interior accents..

    I've never been a huge fan of chrome, but sort of don't mind it on red trucks..
