Stacks are on..... Chrome or Powder Coated Black?

Ok guys...... I installed my stacks earlier this week. I was going to go single 6in black but found a insane deal on dual 5in chrome. Should I get them powder coated black or keep them chrome? And yes I know the rig is dirty....lol

Leave em like that. If you powder coat them black, you'll have to do the steps, to make it right, and maybe do the bumpers.

2001 excursion 4x4, 4" Magnaflow SS exhaust, AEM Brute Force intake, 05 conversion, 6k HID's, after market tail lights, and thats it for now. More to come..

Well that was the original thought. I have a lead on black 22.5 Semi's cheap and was thinking about one of Dune's bumpers for the front and back as well as black steps. I need the steps because my 9yr old girl says so . Not sure if that's even the direction I'll go anymore.
