    Thank you for your valuable input, Just looking for suggestions because I can’t decide lol. I was leaning towards vinyl wrap but I have no experience with it.

    Black it out, if you could give it a black chrome look that would look awesome with the granite crystal.

    I'd color-match the grill and door handles, and black-out the bumpers.

    I didn't want to go all out and replace all the chrome. I just wanted to break some of it up. I replaced the chrome clad wheels with AEV Mesa wheels, which are almost the same color as the granite crystal with partially polished spokes. I also broke up that all chrome front end by swapping out the horizontal grill with black honeycomb and debadged the truck.

    I like the chrome. It isn’t overboard. Blacked out and color matched is nice too. But overdone. I like my chrome so much I kept the stock bumper lol
