I'd say find a good balance. ALL black will only look good on a truck that's black, grey/silver, or white (maybe red ) IMO. And to much chrome/SS will NEVER look good, again IMO.

With the blue truck, (my GF LOVES that color BTW, it was a fight when I wanted black, luckily it's my money buying vehicles .), I'd keep some of the shiney stuff, bumpers, grill, step bars, wheels. Then go black or color match with others stuff, door handles, mirror caps, smoked lights, harley heads :thumb, DARK tint, ect

Eh, just my opinon................. hope it helps out

On my truck the only chrome I have no is the rims and the grille. I have rhino lined steel bumpers on the front and back, harley head lights and smoked 3rd brake lights and mirror lights. Once it warms up the front windows are also getting tinted. Chrome looked nice in moderation, but all it really is a pain, youre constantly polishing it and kicking yourself in the spring after a long winter with lots of salt.

If it were me, I'd get rid of the chrome door handles and bed rails and call it a day.

Paint the handles to match body color, put black (stock) bed rail caps, including tailgate, and be done with it.


Truck look great BTW
