Personally I wouldn't have liked that look.

I have to agree with Lazler. white to match the truck would look better. like an EDGE or SPORT model Ranger.

Actually I really like that. Looks really clean like that. Has some contrast from the body color.

I think the white would look nice its just that I am in no means a professional painter and i think it would take a lot of work to make the white look good. The black took almost no effort/skill

white is the hardest color to match. easiest to tell when something has been repainted etc. but I too am a fan of the all white.

+1. I tried to touch up my air dam with a spray bomb and unless you have perfect conditions you get less than professional results. It would look better white but I would wait till you could get a booth and a quality gun to use.

I forgot to tell you what I thought. I think it looks good. it does feel like a lot of black and could use either the bumper/valance to be a different color to offset the black. Just remember it's all what you want. ALL white is good to an extent, like the edge or 4x4's. But I wouldn't want this for my truck...



like I was saying about which thing to paint, you could do like I am doing and just search through the forum pics for similar trucks and see what color schemes you like. Or just stick with what ya got. it looks good

honestly, i like the black bumper and grill, with the painted suround... i got my grill painted black, and suround DSG on my truck (to match the 2 tone hood) that black grill is virtually the only thing on my truck that is black...
