Default opions wanted

i was wondering what people's thoughts were on if a chrome grill surround would look good on my truck? I'm talking the trim around the outer edge of the grill? I'm thinking about the 4x4 valance also? i seen an explorer at the pic and pull with a one piece grayish cover with the factory fogs in it and was gonna grab that when i went on Monday?

I vote no because chrome would break the flow.

I'm with the other guys... Your truck looks good now, I don't think the chrome would improve the looks. I think it would look out of place, don't you ?

hmmm...bumper.....you know. It's a toss up over here from me. It looks good stock being black. It flows well with the 4x4 grille and the hood paint. Chrome IMO would disturb it...I'm leaning more towards you color matching your bumper and valence.


One things for certain....those headlamps need baked! And some '06 corners blacked out.

i may scrap the chrome but you have me thinking about baking the headlights and corners if i score the bumper i'll post picks of it Grey so and the way it is now and maybe do a poll to see about painting the new one or not?
