Thanks guys and the truck is a 2005 It has the HoneyComb grill on the 04-05 models. I'm going for a blacked out look that's why I wanna paint them.

I like the look of the chrome and black but the all black will look good.

Talk to us about the 06 Mirrors, I know they fit but what is your take on the viewing area ?
Was it worth it ?
Do you think you really gained enough to justify the change over ?

I'm still thinking on the Mirror chg, thanks,

I'm still thinking on the Mirror chg, thanks,
They're an AMAZING difference!!!! Overall the mirror glass is taller, more squared off, resulting in alot more viewing area. And hell, I've covered mine up some with convex blind spot mirrors in the bottom outside corners....still completely loooooove the mirrors. Plus, I feel the passenger side is a different sort of convex on the main mirror glass, TONS of newfound visibility.
