    I am thinking of getting factory projectors for my 2016 Ram 1500 Lonestar with the Bluestreak Pearlcoat color. I'm looking for opinions whether a set of black or chrome projector headlights would look best on a truck that is generally chrome styled. So far, I haven't had luck find pictures online that would give me an idea to work with.

    Well if your truck has all of that chrome and you plan on keeping it, and not color matching the bumpers and grille, etc, then i would say go for the chrome housing headlights. The black will look totally out of place. But if your overall long term goal is to black out the chrome or paint it to match your truck, then the black would look great with that.

    Chrome if you wanna have the look of a retired war vet heading to Home Depot to pick up some new curtain rods just to get out of the house and socialize w the floor staff for 6hrs about how much you love projector headlights as opposed to the regulars...

    I don't want to be a "regular" so it's chrome for me.

    You could always go with both chrome and black: https://alpharexusa.com/product/09-18-ram-truck-luxx-series-led-projector-headlights-black/
    These are the Luxx series which have built in LEDs, the also offer the same combination with the option of halogen bulbs so you can use your own lighting set up whether it be LED, halogen or HID.

    Absolutely. I plan to keep it the way it is without changing too much. Finding a nice set of chrome projector headlights at an affordable price will be a challenge since I believe the chrome projectors are no longer made.

    Funny enough, I work at a Home Depot.

    I was keen on those, but I'm not a fan of the start up animation nor the sequential turns signals. And so far, there doesn't seem to be an option to disable them.

    You might be able to find a V1 version set by Modifystreet but those would only be halogen type. The V1 does not have the sequential turns or start up animation.
