Thinking about going with black and losing the chrome...but not sure. Here is a crude mock-up but gives you an idea of what I'm contemplating. I put a pic of how my truck is now and what it would look like black. What do you think...leave it alone or do it?

Black scenerio:
RBP Black rivet Grille inserts
FX4 Red grille shell
Powder coat existing 22's black
Black Recon projector headlamps
Black Recon marker lights
8" Black Mitre stacks
Black Light Force covers
Black step bars
Black RBP Badges

Cheers,

I'm just the opposite of Don. I like chrome (actually prefer polished 304 stainless but it's the same look)... I also hate the look of black wheels. I would leave it.

If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen. - quote by Samuel Adams

Political correctness is a doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end

I usually think a truck looks much more clean and nicer with some crome. If the truck was all black, then I would say murder it out. Since its red, stick with the chrome

I like it the way it is, and like chrome. Murdered out is cool, but I would never do it to my truck.
