Black or Chrome Step Bar on White Ranger?

So I am thinking about buying some oem step bars but I am not sure to get chrome or black. I want to know what you guys think. I really like the look of the chrome bars but I have no other chrome on my truck other then the emblem so I think that might look weird, also in the future I am thinking about getting DC-1 wheels. Tell me if you guys think I should get black or chrome bars and please don't say don't get them because I need them to haul my girlfriend around.. Lol

Heres the truck.


And heres the 2 options.

I think you could pull off either on a white vehicle. I personally think black would look the best considering you have lots of other black accents.

Black on white is the theme to go with. Get the black steps. And eventually black wheels, a nice roll-up tonneau, tinted windows, maybe nite-shaded tails.....and you'll have yourself a nice little badass truck. It's kinda the theme I was going for til I ran out of $.

ok well crome would make the truck too pretty and the black would make the truck look rugged. so you need to decice what direction you want to go with the truck.... imo i would say black and in the future get some black rimes or powder coat yours or something

This is edgeman4.0's (Andrew's) truck, I hope he doesn't mind me using his truck as an example. It is very similar to yours at stock. For me, personally, ditching the bullbar with the lights and all the unnecessary stickers would help give you a better idea of what your truck could look like Cam, basing it on the "black on white" theme.

He has DC-1s as well. BTW, get yourself a Line of Fire tailgate bar, you won't be dissapointed. And while you're at it, hit up JP7 for LED's for your tails.

Here is Andrews truck.

So, you've decided to sell them, then? I PM'd you immediately about these, two weeks ago, and you were going to get back to me "if you decided to sell"...

I like the chrome. And if you decide later that you want black, paint or powder coat them. It's easier than going the other way.
