I'd go with some nice stained wood. I've seen so much diamond plate in my life that it's a thumbs down for me now days lol

How about all brushed aluminum, or tooled aluminum...that would leek sweet. Kinda retro/big truck-esque.

My new truck is a '97 Crew 4x4 with Roll-a-Long Package with 90 gal. transfer tank. 230K miles...looks and runs new! I LOVE this truck.

How about brushed aluminum trim with stained wood inlays. Now that would look sweet.

get some thin aluminum sheets you can get them from most hardware stores for a decent price. Then get some wood venier from home depot or lowes. Then stain the venier, use a wire wheel on a drill and brush the aluminum. Then using some good adhesive you can attach the wood venier to the aluminum. Brushing the aluminum will allow the adhesive to bond better. I would use a two part epoxy to stick the two together.

Heck you could do this with brass, copper, stainless steel. All would look good depending on what color your interior is.

I would like to find a set of factory silver lariat trim pieces. I guess you couldn't get 'em in '97.
