06 Chrome Grille Ideas

I'm looking for opinions/ideas on what to possibly do with my chrome grille. I like the look of it now and kinda like the harley look better along with the harley lights. I would just keep my chrome grille but recently had some kind of magic incident and came out the a wrinkled section in the chrome one day. Not sure how it got there, its not like water underneath, it doesn't lead to any edges either. I'll upload a picture of it later, but for now here's my question open for comments:
Should I paint the outer chrome shell black or paint matched and if I go with harley lights which I hope to sometime in the future, which combo would look best? Thanks for any input!
(Disregard the ugly ford emblem, its an old pic and has a new one now)

I like the chrome grill style, not really looking to change grilles, just maybe color.

haha I do like camo, although I'd have to dip the whole truck to make it function for if I use it hunting haha. Was it you who got the 7.3 cover camo dipped?

the Harley light will blend with your darker color, paint the grille surround body color, and leave the center chrome.

It might look cool if you paint it black and slap some Harley lights on there. I was thinking about doing that, but I didn't think it would turn out good with my truck being red.

I think the black would turn out real nice with your truck being red. I had an old red and charcoal f150 obs and always wanted to black out some stuff on it but sold it.

So you think paint match will look better than black?
