    Got my metal miller emblem color matched to the grill, also got the wheels professionally painted dark grey similar to the grill, (looks kind of brownish depending on the light). I'm done with the exterior, not planning on doing anything else. Let me know what you think.

    Like the wheels. Not sold on the grill being gray ( I would have done black to match the bumpers). Paint the badges.

    I kind of agree, but I just don't want to over do the black. I want to keep a balance of black/gray. Eventually the grill and bumper will fade with the sun, when that happens everything will get color matched to the truck.

    Nice. Did you get your wheels painted when you replaced your tires? Or did you put your truck on stands, dismount your tires, take just the wheels to them, then get them remounted and balanced? How long did it take? Some folks have an extra set of wheels. Unfortunately most of us do not.

    As always, truck looks great! :thumbsup:


    The first satoshi I had was painted flat black, too much for the front. So I decided to go with the OEM gray colored grille.

    I don't like the look of my front black bumper, mine is starting to fade. I am thinking of taking it off and repainting it. If I had extra $$ I would like to put on a baja style bumper.
