what to do with the rear suspension

i'm updating the front end of my truck, and i already have a lower edge bumper, and next week i'm getting a full edge bumper, and i'm thinking of painting the red upper part gunmetal grey just like my XL bumper, and have the lower valance bright red... what do ya think? i took a pic of what it might look like, i had just tacked it onto my 2wd bumper to see how it looks, i like it

i was shooting for something different like gay-briel with his red/chrome combo bumper, i never seen a gunmetal/red combo, and i like the way it breaks up the bumper, and gives more definition

Great idea SVT01RANGER - go for it.
As Leo said - matching gun metal rims would be SO PIMP!!
Start with the bumper and go from there.
Once you have the paint maybe the door and tailgate handles could also be done to match.

wll i got back from pismo, and i think for now i will just rock the edge look, the paints not too bad except for a area where the paint is chipped, but some touch up will fix that

I saw a yellow Edge yesterday with gray (FX4?) fender flares and the whole front bumper (even the part thats chrome on an XLT) was grey as well.

I didn't care for it.
