My 01's are still black from the factory...

That is definitely one of those little things that makes it look newer.

Here are some others...

Paint the axle and underneath components high gloss black
Paint the door handles and mirrors
Fix the yellowing headlights if applicable

These little things help dramatically in the look of a truck esp 93-97s

That pic looks sweet! I actually just painted the trim black, it used to be chrome. I guess it's hard to tell in that pic. I was debating on painting the billet black and getting black headlights. But I don't wanna make it look too rowdy on the black paint!
