i just noticed, in that auction that's just the part that's behind the chrome part? right? NOT actually the chrom part paint black.

can i just add that part & NOT the chrome part that sits over that & be ok...will it work?

I would say #3, but you should add some black-outs on the headlights and remove the bed bars.

Either black it all, including anything else on the truck, or keep it chromed. Doesn't look right with just parts of it blacked out (on the front), looks like you just didn't get it all done yet.

Other options you did not show,

Black both inserts and leave grille surround chrome.
or
Black grille surround and leave both inserts chrome.

Truck looks good. Nice stance.

I believe you should do black with the grill inserts left shiny, so it is the opposite of my truck.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/NEW-FRONT-BLACK-BUMPER-94-02-DODGE-RAM-TRUCK-1500-2500_W0QQitemZ390081740748QQcmdZViewItemQQptZMotors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories?hash=item5ad2aeffcc&_trksid=p4506.c0.m245

does anyone know if i can get that & leave the 2 chrome pieces off & it will all still bolt up right?

i hate to get another grille, i can't find one that i like except for a stock one painted black. If i don't fully black it out i'll do whats in pic 1. i like a little touch of chrome.

i bought some headlights off ebay once & I wasn't happy with them so i doubt i'll ever buy aftermarket lights again.

i think i found the answer. according to the pic i found...the part in this link:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=390081740748&_trksid=p2759.l1259

is the whole bumper (blue outline), but instead of chrome its black. and the area i outlined in red is the area that shows through & on a stock bumper its chrome but on this one it will be black.

i wasn't 100% sure if i even got that bumper i'd need another part..or if the chrome that shows through was yet another extra piece...or if it would bolt on right or what.

seems like this is what i want & its all i need & that it'll bolt up correct, i will use my stock black upper pad & the new black trim cap thing (on stock trucks its the grey piece) & all the same brackets & stuff. Prolly need some new clips. I took off the air dam.

Yea thats just the black bumper then you have to put all the plastic parts on it. I say paint that grill shell black and leave your inserts chrome so it goes with the wheels and emblems. And I would either ditch the bed rails or powdercoat them black.
