Color match or chrome front end?

I need to replace my stock front bumper, headlights and grille. I want to stay with the 99-2004 front end look, but I can`t make up my mind if I should do the color match bumper and grille and smoked lights, or all chrome bumper like the platium edition with no plastic valance and the all chrome grille with smoked headlights?

Re: Color match or chrome front end?

What if I were to have the bumper and grille sprayed pear silver to mach the first part of the flames and the rear bumper color matched to the truck? Just an idea? I have 3d raise flame billet door handles and billet flame pinch weld covers and all my badges have had the paint removed. I`m thinking about stainless steel n-fab nerf bars of amp bar, leaning towards the amp research bars so the wife can get up into the truck easier.

I sprayed my grille( just the chrome part) to match the body color. And left the bumper chrome. I love it., looks way good.

Re: Color match or chrome front end?

I think you should go with your idea of painting the front to match the flames and the rear to match the truck.

Re: Color match or chrome front end?

Here is what the back of my truck looks like. I have painted all the plastic trim to match the truck.
