    I think if you paint those items you might as well paint the front bumper cover too. Me personally I like the mono-tone look, nowadays.

    If it were my truck, I would consider painting the handles/mirrors white, but not red. The red in the scoop does look bada** though. Personally I like black mirrors and door handles. I agree a red bowtie might look good. Nice truck

    I would leave what you have and add the red bowtie and maybe start color matching in white. Do you have any interior parts red?

    I think a member on this forum (I can't remember who right now) can take a picture of a ride and fill in the colors of what you might think you want to change/paint. By modeling first, you should get a pretty good idea of what the changes will look like. Unfortunately, I am not that good with a computer, so I don't know exactly how to do. But if you can or know someone, it may be worth the time to do that first.

    I'm always partial to white and chrome.I would get rid of the red and keep it simple and classy by using silver and white accents........but thats just my opinion.
