White truck ideas

I currently have a white 06 with a lot of chrome on it. The brush guard ,mirrors, door handle and rocker panels all are chrome. I am not sure it I want to keep the chrome (too much up keep).

I'm thinking of whiting out or blacking out the truck. If any one has pictures of either please post them I'm looking for some ideas and opinions.

Here is what my truck looks like now minus the bed cover.

I like the black look so far. I have a few questions what did every one use to paint the bottom black is it a spray on liner or paint?

I would start small. First would go is the mirror covers than the rocker guards. Thoes two things would realy clean it up. There is nothing wrong with chrome and the black thing is getting to popular not that it looks bad done right but just tomany have it.
