Default STX/Sport Grille Vs My Chrome XLT Grille

Many of ya'll have seen my ??? on FB, but ill post here too. There is a local wholesaler that I am going to meet today to see about trading my chrome XLT grille for his 08+ STX/Sport grille that is colormatched and is the same color as my truck. So far everyone is agreement but one person that it will look kickass. They think it will not look right because of my shiny wheels/tow hooks/toolbox.
Current Grille:





(and of course my crappy 06 emblem is messing up)

The STX/Sport Grille:

I guess Ill be the second person in disagreement, I still say the STX/SPORT grille would look good but I like your chrome one much better.

Well, I don't know about where you are, but arround here I see tons of rangers with the chrome grill. I have yet to see anyone arround here with the STX grill.

So to be different & still look good, I say ditch the chrome one.

I agree. But something about you truck being red and having the chrome grille and your wheels just gives it this classic clean look. I still say keep it.
