Black Bumper with Chrome Grille

Well about a month ago I Slipped on some black ice and hit a guard rail. Ended up doing 7500$ worth of damage(axle. bumper, fog lights, wheel and tire, tie rod, mounts, etc.) but thankfully insurance took care of it. Anyways Ive been planning on getting my bumpers painted black for a while now so I used this opportunity to get the front one done. I still have the chrome grille. Not sure how much I like it or not. Ill probably end up getting an XL Grille and getting it painted but just thought id see what you guys thought? Heres some pics.

I like the look of the chrome grill. I think the XL grills have a rounded profile on the edges and don't look as nice, even when painted. What about that black chrome? There is guy around my town who used a vinyl to cover all his chrome with a 'black chrome' and really looks nice. Either way, nice truck!

I have always liked this look, but he are a few suggestions.... you either need chrome wheels or do the black grille.

with having the Harley lights and black wheels it dosnt mesh very well......it dosnt look bad but it dosnt flow.

try a set of chrome lights first, then try a chrome wheel.

get a black mesh grill with chrome rivets, that would look awesome.
