Option 1......Both front and rear Bumper's,Chrome.
Grille in Chrome.
Composit Head Light's..Clear or OEM?
Corner Lenses...Clear or OEM?

Option 2.....Same as above,but with painted White Bumper's and Grille..

Chrome Chrome Chrome .... all the way especially on white truck... keep in mine white painted bumper will show stone chips easily and then the rust will bleed from the chips and look bad... I found this pic of a fine looking truck ... dont know who it belongs to but I like it

I vote for the chrome bumpers also. If I painted my bumpers in Oxford White to match, it would just be too much white. The chrome gives it a nice break up in the color.

Chrome, like cj said the white bump with stone chips bleds rust through. Chicks love chrome

Thants a tough one, properly handled the all paint looks good not flashy and pimp mobil looking like too much chrome. This comment is from a guy with the factory chrome package. I didn't vote yet cause I can't make up my mind
