I'm not a fan of the step rails (just my opinion) but if you don't want them to stand out the go with black. But you do have enough chrome accents to be able to go with stainless. My dad has some stainless rails on his truck & just about every dealer installed chrome accent available on a white Z71 & as much as I don't like chrome (also) his truck looks good. GO STAINLESS! Have fun truck looks good.

Stainless if you want to show it off. Black if you want to use it for a getaway vehicle. Stealth mode!
Are you going to losd anything heavy in the bed? I wouldnt lower it if you plan to haul. Larger wheels and tires will help fill the empty spot.
Good luck and add pics when you decide and complete2010 Chevy Silverado Z71 ext cab.4x4

Unless you also go with a custom tune (and even then), I wouldn't waste your money on a cold air intake. Unless you have the skinny pedal on the floor at all times, they are pretty much useless. I'd just stick a K&N replacement air filter in your stock box and save your money for other mods.2005 Chevy Silverado W/T

Polished stainless also has the advantage of handling the rock chips and scuffs you will INVARIABLY get when driving on gravel roads much better than black powder coat. It'll keep its look longer, as it's stainless and shouldn't rust -- whereas black powder coat will chip and then rust if you don't touch it up.
I like not having to touch up my bars, at all. Lower maintenance is always a plus...
