How about that black "x" style on a black truck with the stock chrome style piece around it?

Any opinions on how that would look?

With a black insert on a black truck, but leaving the chrome badge... I feel like you won't really notice the insert much, and your eye would be drawn to just the chrome badge. I think a brighter insert with a painted badge (no chrome) looks better. Still in the process of getting mine painted.
