Default Chrome or Black exterior mods?

As you can see in the picture my truck basically has no chrome on it. So I'm wondering should I bother with chrome or stainless steel nerf bars or can I go with black? Same question for the front brush guard. Here is a link to the Iron Cross nerf bars I'm looking at. Either the 3" or 4". I really Like the look of the black ones. If you click the picture in the link it will enlarge to more pictures.

Thanks for your feedback.

I generally like chrome, but I went with black step bars and I will more than likey go with a black bull bar. My thoughts are those things will take some abuse and it is easy to touch up a little black here and there.
Just my opinion though.

I think the black would look really good, that's what I would do.

I agree, I'd go with black also, but then again, I'm not a fan of a lot of chrome, either lol.

That's a sharp truck man. The green that Ram uses is a terrific color. On a truck with no chrome, you gotta go black.
