well it comes down to this, IMO of cousre, if you want a "pretty" looking truck then go with crome. if you wanna go with a tough lookin offroad kind of truck go with black or gunmetal... and this is my opinion

the OP is from calexico, ca....I was raised there. Thats a border town with mexicali, mexico. You can get CHEAP paint jobs down there but they SUCK. Guys will paint in their backyards with dust blowing all over the place. Most of the time you can tell if a car/truck has had work done across the border because how ****ty it looks....wavy bondo, cracked bondo, LOTS of orage peal, little/cheap clear coat.
