Bedliner. Have the bumpers and grill sprayed with a color matched and uv protected bedliner. Its different, its not black and would be bad ass!

If you're going to do anything colour matched would definitely look the best IMO. The bumpers for sure, then it would look like a limited. I dunno if I'd do the grille though.... I personally like it chrome. I think if you just do the bumpers it will tone down the chrome enough and then leave the grille, side steps, and door handles alone. That way it's all tied together nicely.

Well, since I'm a geezer, I like chrome! Seems to be a generational thing. Y'all boys are maybe younger than say, about 40? I'm being generous there.

Anyway, it's good being a geezer, codger, old coot, etc. I like what y'all boys do to your trucks, but I don't mod mine - cartilage stock.

Guess I'm going to be the odd one out here lol and I'm not 40 yet, still trying to hang on to the 30's haha, but I like the black chrome look. I'm not big on chrome, either, so I'd say either go with the black chrome or go the bedliner route. Both are different IMO.

I'm not a chrome guy in particular but I do think it goes really well with the paint color. I was impressed when I saw your pics.
