So while my '12 Laramie 4wd 5.7 MegaCab is on order I am looking for accessories. The color I chose is Molten Red with Pearl. The truck has quite a bit of chrome already being a Laramie and I am considering black for the brush guard, bug deflector and step bars (left Mopar's off b/c they want too much IMO), and locking fuel door. Being a true USC fan (we were founded first not SoCal) I like Garnet and Black and this will give the truck that look. However, what are the opinions out there on chrome accessories vs black. I think the black will wear a bit better (not that my '08 chrome after market bars look bad at all), and will help set the chrome on the front off. What sayeth the board? Anyone have a similar setup with black or chrome they'd be willing to share a pic of?

Keeping in mind that it's just my opinion, I'd say go with the chrome, as I believe it tends to look better than the black, unless there is no other chrome on the truck, then the black would probably work better.

When it all comes down to it, it's your truck, so the only thing that really matters is what your opinion is.

good luck

Just my opinion -

If the grill is chrome I'd go with chrome accessories, if the grill is painted to match the truck or black I'd go with black accessories.

Just my .02:smiley_thumbs_up:

I agree with what's already been said. I like the red/black combo since I'm not big on chrome, but if you already have chrome on the truck, I'd stick with that and like Exco, that's just my opinion, yours is the one that counts! :)

Thanks for the replies guys. No way around the chrome with the Laramie that I am aware of, but at the same I like the black accessories :4-looney: doh! Anyone know of a your truck will look like this with this accessory type site? None of the sites I've looked at have many pictures of vehicles with whatever part installed let alone trying to match up to my specific details. Thanks again for the replies.
