Yeah, I'd definitely leave the reflector orange. Looks kind of weird painted/tinted.

I'd tint the reflectors Zach. On both the mirrors and the lights. I don't like orange though so thats just what I'd prefer.

I think it looks good how it is, but if you do anything to lose the amber, on a silver truck I'd go with clear chrome if they're available.

That black SD is a gorgeous beast, though.

Haha
If they are sealed like my f150 head lights this is probably true. I couldn't get those stupid lights apart for the life of me!
The lights on the Subaru came right apart, but then so did the rest of the damn car.
