    Just wanted everyone's opinion on whether I should black out all the chrome/polish or leave it alone?

    Also does anyone know if the Limited grill would fit without any issues if I do decide to black everything out?

    I vote black it out, but you are going to get mixed thoughts. Since its bumpers and grill are painted to match, it wouldnt be hard to black out the center of your grill and throw some black rims at it.

    Since you already have chrome wheels, I would leave it alone. It looks great as it it.

    I would leave it alone. Very sharp truck the way it is! Leave chrome on it and you can be different in this day and age! Lol

    Color matched mirror covers if they sell them definitely! Prolly leave grille alone.
    If you ever get the need to swap wheels/tires a mix of black/milled would look great with or without the stock grille also.

    Not my best work, but it might help with your decision.

    That truck is kind a weird mixture of chrome, paint, black. If it were me I think I would just go with a after market set of wheels (not chrome) and call it a day?
    If it was a gray or black truck I might lean towards a black grill but not with the blue. Everyone has different taste though so go with what you like.

    I'm weird because I like chrome, so I say your truck looks snazzy just the way it is.
    I think a black grill with the blue just looks weird, like it stands out but not in a good way.
    I will admit I'm not a fan of chrome clad wheels, so different rims would look great.
    @Plankton , can you do a quick one with black wheels but original grill?
