that black on the bottom looks mean man. I definitely say go for it!

the line from the front bumper flow to the side, with that black lower bumper portion being black, it definitely looks great having black on the bottom

Well I got u early today before the sun was out and burning everything and did the other side in the Black. Its just plasti dipped so if I dont end up liking it I can remove it easily. But it does look pretty good, guess I just have to get used to it.

It looks real good man! Have you thought about tying the black in by installing some black fender flares?

Thanks again, they have a Plasti Dipp Glossifier that you can spray on the Matte Black to give it the Gloss appearance. Worth a try IMO. Good luck with it.

I really want to Matte Black the Entire Truck but do like the Burgundy since its not a usual color. I might PD the roof as well, Im a "Murdered Out" type of person. So we shall see, thats the best part of the PD. If I dont like it I can peel it right off.

I vote black, I think it looks really good! What kind of lights do you have on your bull bar, and are they bright?

I went with the black. The lights on the light bar are 8" x 1.25" 65w LED strips. I got 4 of them basically 2 pairs off ebay shipped for 17 dollars. They are actually very bright at night. I will post a pic of them during the dark when I get a chance. Thanks for the compliment.
