    If you are going all out, I say paint the bumper and door handles, and lose the bowtie on the tailgate.

    I thought about that but i wanted to leave some chrome so those where the last two chrome pieces. my doorhandles are already black. Is any body with my truck running a cam?

    I say get a painted to match black grill with a contrasting insert like a brushed aluminum honeycomb(or more exotic styling) , also try to find a shop that can replicate your Z71 sticker but swap the red out with a silver/grey and leave the few other chrome you got on it.. just my two cents... Truck looks great as is btw

    If you got handles/bumpers painted black you wouldnt have 2 shades of black and imo will make your truck look better. If you do prep work by sanding and having them ready for paint, it will cheaper when you get them painted.

    I gotcha. i was lookin at the 2012 grille and im thinking i might have to put that on and it would save me from going to paint. right now my truck is two colors the black metallic paint and then the rear bumper, that front bumper piece, all the plastic and the rimss are plastidipped flat black
