I was going to instantly say, chrome! but after seeing your truck, it won't match well. You don't have much chrome in the first place. Unless your planning to chrome other parts in the long run, I would stick with black.

Black for appearance, chrome for durability. If you decide to go with chrome you can get chrome over-lays to make your door handles match.
