I know I want a new look, a more monochromatic one for my truck.
I wondered what it would look like with a black bumper, using my smoked headlight covers. I am getting new "clear" headlights but couldn't get a good look.
So I was playing with paint and came up with this...please compare to the old bumper, and submit to my poll which look you prefer. Thanks!

I tend to over-analyze things like this, and in my opinion it will look better if you continue the black theme on other parts of the truck. No doubt paint the rear bumper black too, but if you do black wheels it will compliment the other black parts more than anything.

Thanks for the comments, and I'm planning changing the rear bumper to black and going with black Cragar soft-8 rims.

My truck is white...you don't believe the black grille is too much? If it weren't for the chrome gille I could'nt see your truck at all in your pics JonRoc.

Its not that I don't like the all black look...:)

if you go black on the front you might want to think about going flat black on the sides from the bottom of the truck up to about 14 inches or the top of the crease for the trim it will make your truck look like it sets higher and has more lift try that on photo shop and see what you think

Here ya go. Its hard (at least for me...lol) to change a dark black to white & it look right.

imo, i think the black strip at the bottom looks better bigger. Instead of painting it u could just get it rhinolined or linex'ed.

I have some light covers & u can't see crap at night, i drove not even a half mile down my road at like 9pm & had to turn my fogs on & drive back home. I really got em for show/pics anyway. SO an idea for show/offroad/pics...paint em white like in this pic...you could also paint your door handle white. I shaved it cause it was easier..lol

Also coulod paint your mirrors white too.

And paint your rear bumper white too or just get a rollpan & pain it white, if u don't tow that much. You could prolly mount a hitch lower to work with a rollpan.

EDIT: I tried to add a slight hint of blue to all the white I added. Cause the pic has a blue tint all over it. If I would of made it pure white it would have looked even odder.
