Default Need opinions!

I usually am very set in my ways on what I want. I know I made another post regarding putting up pics of your bug deflectors and appreciate everyone that did. I thought that the Black was going to look really cool on my truck. I can't really get my own opinion though and it is kind of bothering me. Just give me your opinions on it. I am not out much since I ended up buying it from a friend that needed cash for $20. Please be honest!!!

I like it...subtle yet it contrasts with the paint.

Now...this is your first step to blacking out the truck, eh?

I actually would agree, if you want to keep the deflector, I'd go chrome, too but if it's not a necessity, I'd just take it off.

I'd go Chrome (just to match) or match it to the truck's paint

I think chrome would look awesome!

If not chrome, paint to match.
