Default New Grille, What do you think?

Over the winter I broke my grille and I ordered this new one last week. I was originally going to paint it to match the silver color of the truck like my original grille but I kinda like the look of it. What do you guys think?

New black grille:

I was also thinking I would black out the headlights! I think it would look good and the black grille complements the black fender flares.

What would look good is if you painted your center section of you hood black.

The raised sections

definately get the black HID headlights, and clears; that would look awesome. I can't tell in the pic, is your bumper black or gray? if gray, paint it but leave the chrome.

I like it because it matches your valence on your bumper. Looks pretty sweet.

By stripes do you mean paint the indentation in the center of the hood black, or do you actually mean paint stripes down the hood?

I think I will black out the headlights and corners. And my bumper was grey but I painted it black, I hopefully will soon be ditching the stock one and be replacing it with this...

Here's a link to another thread, post #11 has a guy with the power dome painted black. He didn't have a straight on but you can see what I'm talking about.

Ohh so you think I should paint the two sides of the hood and leave the center stripe silver? I was thinking about doing the opposite and painting the center stripe black and leaving the rest silver.
