Paint it or leave it?

I'm thinking about de-chroming the rest of the truck (bumpers, grill, etc.) and painting them to match the rest of the truck. Looking for opinions on if I should do it or leave it. Also, can you prime and paint chrome or will I need to find a plastic replacement?

All you would have to do is sand blast the chrome off and then spray the metel
