On the fence about doing everything in black. My initial plane was to black it all out, but now I kind of like the chrome front/rear bumpers and grille. Thats why Im going to take a break from it for a while and see how I feel about it at a later date. I really like how it looks now and sometimes we overdo things trying to make them better and we end up making them worse. Either way, thanks for the props!

I totally agree about the over doing it. Happened on my last truck.

But you should check out Billet Badges - billet aluminum custom emblems and badges they make some sweet badges to replace your chrome ones.

Thanks. Its all cosmetic as of now. Gonna keep it stock until the warranty runs out, then will weigh my options at that point. I still have some small detail things I want to do that should keep me busy enough.

Love the black. Maybe a leveling kit would be a good upgrade.

Leveling kit and spray tint the head and tail lights along with the blinkers in the mirror. That's all I would do cosmetic wise.

Thanks, they were $212. I went with a 10% black gloss with a very very light texture, and I mean light texture.

Very nice. Really like the look of the step bars. I agree with your wanting to leave some crome.

truck looks good. I need to build a bigger oven so i can do mine, only have a 6' oven right now. Good choice going with a texture, pain to clean but lasts longer than normal powder.
