Default Am I the only chrome lover???

Don't get me wrong I also like the look of a clean debadged truck , especially black ones. For me though I like my chrome. Not over doing by adding more but just the stock chrome. The chrome 20's, lower door moldings, grill surround, bumpers.. Anyone else love the look of their stock chrome or am I an minority lol......

I am with you 100%. I have the chrome side molding on order and my bed rails are on the way! Here is a shot or two of how my truck sits right now.

I like my chrome as well. Mineral grey looks better with the chrome accents thanbit does with flat black accents.

I like chrome. More so on older classic vehicles(loved all the chrome on my F100), but I like the chrome on my ram too. I'd probably prefer the color matched on the newer truck, but the chrome is still great.

I like Chrome!

I do like the clean look of painted bumpers, but I also think it makes no sense to have painted bumpers. For durability, chrome cant be beat.... other than Line-x

I like the way mine looks. I wasn't too sure of the chrome towing mirror at first, but they are growing on me. I have added a undercover flex bedcover (looks like a bakflip f1 but less $$ and more warranty), and wheel to wheel mopar tubular side steps so my short butt can reach in the bed if need be.

I do plan on removing the side steps in the very near future and going with the amp research powered ones. I just like the way it looks better without the steps, but I need them to avoid wearing the leather seats out from dragging my short butt across them every time I get in and out of the truck until I get the amp research ones.


BTW, how do you get the fullsize pics to show up ?

The chrome tow mirrors look fantastic against the white paint.....
