Should I stay color matched or add some chrome?

Okay i've been debating this for a little while about adding a little chrome to the truck. It would be all factory chrome so it wont look like *** lol. Anyway look at this truck with the chrome and then mine and tell me what you like better. I'm kinda tore because I think the chrome brings out the blue more.

No clear tails...wasn't planning on it ever lol. I do have eurotails right now though. So far I have 1 vote from another forum saying do it and now yours saying dont lol. I need more imput from others. If I went to the chrome i'd probably not keep the billet grill.

Just do that other billet grill for the bottom hole, but not chrome.

Re: Should I stay color matched or add some chrome?

chrome would look good if you had chrome wheels, bumpers, pumpkin cover, etc. Cant just slap a little chrome on though, gotta make it part of your scheme overall. Get the chrome wheels and other things first, then do the bumper stuff IMO

stay color matched for now

Get chrome in the bottom area that goes along with what you already have in the upper portion (don't change that part), and get the chrome parts that fit onto your front and rear bumpers. I don't like that other one's upper grille area at all.
Then you can eventually get chrome wheels unless you want to maintain it's offroad drivability.

Re: Should I stay color matched or add some chrome?

for me, if it goes offroad, no chrome. street only, chrome is cool. Chrome does not like off road

Re: Should I stay color matched or add some chrome?

if you are going for that off road billet 4x4 look, then you need chrome rims to go with the front grilles and what not.

though for the sport truck look the color matched looks great. id leave it how it is now.

stay color matched, if your gonna be off-roading theirs really no point in adding chrome and hurting its finish.
