What color is your truck now, I think black on white is great, but chrome on white is kinda gawdy

Black is everywhere but idc. Ive seen trucks like mine that look pretty sick blacked out. But haven't seen to many with chrome. Truck is tan in color. Phone wouldn't let me upload a pic for some reason.

I say black. I'm not a big chrome fan. I think a blacked out tan truck would look good

I like black if nothing else but for the ease of keeping clean vs chrome. However , one day in the future I think the blacked out look will date a ride. Like some looks of older days , the blacked out look as good as I think it looks , got way too popular and I think in a few years will look dated because of that. I wanted to go the stormtrooper route myself but didnt feel like adding the expense of wheels. I opted for a new front end in black with the billet insert , then ordered black center caps and lugs and did some black fill on the chrome wheels. I'm hoping the chrome / black combo doesn't date itself one day. But in the end It's your ride , whatever makes YOU happy when you walk out and admire it is what matters.

I think it depends on the color of your truck but also what you like.

I think chrome looks good with my green and i like it. I would not add any more chrome than it has now but a little gives it a clean look in my opinion.
