Should I paint my grille black?

I think it's time to update the look of my SD so I was thinking painting my grille flat black, what do you guys think? I'm just worried the chrome bumper might then look out of place. Anyone got any pics on a truck similar to mine with a black grille? I would love your guys opinions too... Thanks.

Re: Should I paint my grille black?

Is it possible to find new unpainted 05 style grilles? I'm not sure I like the "billet" look that the harley grille has...

You can find XL grilles and paintable grilles for a good price. And you could probably sell your OEM grille for at least half of the price.

Ya, I think a gloss black may look better than a flat black hmm...

I found a brand new unpainted grille for 100 shipped, you guys think that is too much?
