I wish I had some good pics of my truck, but this will give you an idea of what black wheels with chrome lugs and center caps look like against chrome bumpers, grill, handles, etc. I love it. I used to want to do my bumpers and grill white and lose all the chrome, but I've decided that I'm going to leave it all as is. The only things I'm going to change is removing the amber turn signal lens' and maybe remove the RAM emblems, or something....not sure what to do with those yet.

I personally think it looks good.



These are old with the old steps





I should take some newer/better pics...

I like the look of those wheels sean, just enough chrome to accent the bumpers and grill. I'm really like the steps you got too, who makes them?

Thanks!

Which steps? The running boards in the first picture are what I have now, they are made by hunter truck company or something like that. I heard about them from another member who found them on ebay. Believe it or not, they were only like ~$120 shipped IIRC. They are really nice to, VERY sturdy, look great, good ground clearance, and the powder coat seems to be holding up. Customer service was great to, the first set I got were damaged and they returned and shipped new ones with no issues and no charge to me.

The other steps in the other pictures are go rhino dominator II's. They were great as well, although more like ~$350. I'd say they were not quite as sturdy(although still plenty sturdy), they were significantly heavier(steel vs. aluminum), and the real issue I had was they provided no ground clearance. They are more for lifted trucks. I sold them locally to a guy with a small lift and they looked better on his truck. Also, I liked the look of the single steps, but the running boards are much more usable/practical.

Hope this helps.

Here's the site to the running boards(it's hard to find if you don't know what it is):
