Another vote for the color matched grill. If you want more of a blacked out look, swap out or paint the inserts to black.

If you were going with the black grill, black out everything else that is chrome. Would be bada$$ to say the least

I would go back to chrome and change to a chrome bumper too. Never liked painted bumpers. Even with 3m they look like hell in short order.

Definitely the orange grill...I've always preferred the color-matched look.

Have you thought about blacking out the mesh in the orange grill to match the lower valance and mirrors?

I also like the black but with some changes. Black headlights, a black Mopar stripe from bumper up over hood and roof down back tailgate. That would look awesome!

I was photoshopping that just recently...and I thought the chrome looked a bit better for the mesh...

After a second look, my vote would be painting the crosshairs black, then blacking out everything else....wheels, running boards, emblems.... Don't think I've ever seen an orange Ram murdered out. Plus, the crosshairs is just a better grille. That would probably look sweet!

I agree, the orange looks better on your truck. I could use the black one on my black truck. LOL

I ordered a grill painted Mango Tango to replace the chrome one. Then I removed that and installed the black with painted RAM letters. Which y'all like better? (Color difference due to sunny vs cloudy day)

To be honest, I had a hard time choosing. With the bumpers being Mango Tango, I finally thought, stick with that. I think the black kicks butt too.
