Need Opinions

We have these laying in the garage and I wondered what they would look like. I will install a chrome handle as well and maybe even flames around the Ford emblem.

I need some opinions, I dont think it looks that bad, will look better with the chrome handle I am for sure.

I kinda like it, with a chrome handle I think it'll look pretty sharp. I'd leave the Ford emblem alone though, could be a little too much. But then it is your truck so in the end your opinion is the only one that counts. Just my $.02.

Kinda cheesy. Reminds me of those flame/dragon hawaiian-type shirts from Wal-Mart that nerds at gaming conventions (and my cousin) wear.

I am still really undecided on this, I have looked around at our Vendors sites and not found a chrome handle. Is there any that you guys would recommend??

Granite Guy is the one that has the handles, I just found them.

I like it and I dont like it. Not sure, I would hate to put them on and then take them right off. It would be kinda pointless.

No poll here, I have decided against both of them at the moment. Maybe something else in store and good about the body damage after all.

Does he have chrome door handles too? Or just the chrome tailgate handle? I'd like chrome (metal, not a plastic overlay) door handles in addition to a chrome tailgate handle.
