What to do?

I am having a lot of trouble deciding what I want to do to my bumpers. They are FX4 bumpers, but I don't know if I should either linex them white to color match the whole truck or if I should paint/powder coat them gloss black. What do you guys think?

Here is what the truck looks like currently with the dark gray bumpers. It has a 4" BDS lift on the way, so try to picture it a little bigger with those same tires.

I will for sure be doing Harley head lights, or at least painting them. Not sure if I want the handles white, and the mirrors are staying like they are lol.

I'm about to do the same to mine, once I getthe cash. And I am also undecided on the mirrors, but trust me the handles need to be painted. It completely changes the look of the truck, and it gives it a cleaner look to it.

My truck basically has the same body as yours, and I plan on doing an '05 conversion with Harleys and White Bumpers and Grille. And PTM door handles. I think the whiteout look with black accents just looks killer!!

Yea, there are just a lot of completely white 6.4's out there with black accents. I like it myself, but like being a little different with things.
