Looking for some opinions...take a look

Hey guys I am going to be doing a 2008 front end conversion on my truck sometime soon..

I am having a REALLLLLY hard time deciding on blacking out with chrome rims or going with a chrome grill/bumpers and some chrome rims. He is two videos of of which ways I can go. I like both of these trucks so its hard. One video is with the chrome and one is blacked out. Both of them have different lifts but dont incorporate the lifts into you decision....lol I have a 12" rize that is going on mine.

Let me know which one you guys think looks better. Plus pretty cool vids..

(chrome one)

(blacked out one)

Thanks for the help

Haha thanks for the opinion...I dont want a 6.4..I like the 6.0 but the 08+ front end...if this motor ever takes a dump Im throwing in a 5.9 CR cummins...Since I live in Cali the engine swapped in has to be the year of the truck or newer...Thats why I had to get an 06 or 07....mid 07 cummins went to the 6.7...no thanks....although I would have preferred the 08 body and interior I couldnt get that for what my future plans are.
