Thinking about changing up the look...suggestions?

Ok well my truck has been sitting the same way since about 4 months after I bought it and that was 2 years ago so I'm thinking about changing up the look a little bit.

Things thinking about doing:
-Should I paint the flares black or orange (they don't have any paint on them now)
-Leave the running boards or take them off?
-I'm also thinking about dropping it down to about a 4" lift so if I do that I will be getting some 20x12 wheels.
-Any other suggestion?

Heres a picture of how it sits now:

Take off the flares and running boards. Lose the stacks and put on a nice stainless system. Keep the lift but step up to 40's with chrome 22's. Get rid of light covers (if that's what they are) and put smoked lights on the truck.

IMO, I'd leave it lifted as like it is and run some 20x12's on 37's. Lose the running boards and get some N-fab style rock rails/steps. Also, I wonder what the flares would look like painted Orange to match the truck...

Take it down to 4 inches of lift, ditch the steps, ditch the fender flares, ditch one of the stacks, and put smoked lenses on your cab lights/mirror lights.

Oh, and lose one stack and run a single. IMO, the single looks a lot cleaner.
