Grill Color

So I'm in need of a new headlight and the insurance company replaced my OEM 06 headlights with aftermarkets. So I'm just going to get the harleys now, thinking HID's.

Anway, the plan is to paint the bottom of the bumper, roll pan and take the chrome off the rocker as well as adding in some 18" black XD rims.

IF I go this route, I was wondering what would look better... the grill painted to match the top color or the bottom color....... I am kinda torn

Re: Grill Color

Damn - I'm not a crowd follower, but I would shoot it with the same color as the top of the truck. I think it would look good either way - but I think using the darker color would break up the front of the truck a bit better and make it stand out better.

Re: Grill Color

Top color. The bottom color is too close to as it is already.
