Would you paint it?

Looking for some ideas as to if I should paint my wheels and grill black or not. The truck will be getting a bigger set of BFG all terrains in a bit, but let me know what y'all think I should do.

Get the tires first and see if you like it, if you are still not satisfied with the look, then paint the grill

I have the same color truck with the same rims and yes, it is a bit normal looking.

I personally wouldn't paint the grill, if you want to do a cheap change contact your auto parts store and see if they can get parts through Partschannel (they do after market oem spec body parts) they have a black grill that will bolt on.
My 2 cents

If you want black wheels, just get new ones that are already black. Rattle canned oem wheels look cheesy and cheap. I'd also color match the grille.

I'd leave it as-is. Black grille would render it nearly invisible since your truck is also a dark color.
Same for the wheels. I wish my truck was the green yours is!

look into new wheels

new wheels would allow for bigger tires and look better. i went with cragars because they're cheap. The black cragar soft 8s would look good i think

That's a great looking truck as it is. Under the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" rule, I'd leave it alone and spend the money on something functional like a new stereo system or a trailer.

I would plastidip them if I'm still undecided about the looks. Plastidip is cheap and can be easily removed.
