i say keep it because making it all one color makes it look all plastic... with the little amount of steel chrome on the truck show it off not cover it up with paint :/ its a great great looking truck right as it is right now. why change it? you want to make it look like a lower line ranger? no xl's comes with chrome. only the upper line rangers do. just my 2 cents

i strongly feel you need to get rid of those chrome caps on the mirrors. i hate them on black trucks. also lose the chrome bumpers. but the wheels look fine to me. im going to black out my truck and im starting to consider getting my self some dc-2's instead of the procomps 7069. not sure yet. oh and paint your grill black again.

but hey its your truck and you do what you want. but if i was you id black it out.

I think you should keep the chrome, It gives it a bit of contrast and I think makes the black stand out and vice versa. If you do get new rims in the summer, I think you should stick with something similar to what you have, black and chrome polish maybe. And sell me your old rims when you're done!

I had the same thought for my truck. When I found out black rims and billet grills were much more expensive, I went with chrome. I can honestly say I like the mix of 95% black and 5% chrome on my truck. Change the mirror caps though, that would look better.

I voted chrome, but only because of your wheels.

i gotta say leave the chrome, change the mirrors. the chrome makes the paint job look sharp, and vice versa.

then again, it is your truck. just my opinion
