Paint color opinions

If I was to get this bumper:


what color should I paint it? My truck is dark green with black and chrome wheels. I also have rear light guards. I was thinking a white/cream or light gray and i'd match the bumper with the rear light guards, if I keep them on. I don't want to be plain, my grille guard is black. I don't want black.

I like the salmon idea!!!!! I was thinking about some crazy color that would work, yellow and orange but those are too wicked. Salmon sounds good, i'll have to think about it.

i'd say some sort of silver, but then again, i dunno, i'd keep it from the greyish colors, cause then it'll look like you've only got it primered and not painted.
