    Too dull looking in the front. White paint with all black trim. So my question what will look better? A black grill, plastidipped or white plastidipped? Or the same in Satoshi style? Did the valence already, should look good if I go with white grill. Anyone have white with black trim, what did you do? Thanks gents!!

    Hear me out on this.

    Remove Bug Gaurd

    Repaint the white valance black.

    Install factory fog lights in the bumper.

    Color match the outside of your grille, leaving in the inner lines black.

    With his black flares he needs to keep some black up front.

    If it was up to me I'd say ALL BLACK! Muwhahaha!

    LOL, this truck is in my hands for the long haul. Might peel off the white I did and do the grill surround only. 50/50 on the BG

    Fog lights and a black badge on mine which is pretty much the same front made a big difference.
