Thinking about painting my grille(opinions please)

So I've been thinking about doing some painting to my billet grille. Just wanting to change it up a bit. So I did a couple of quick PS's. Tell me which you like better.

I voted black but the stock color of it is cool too. Black or original billet go well with the blacked out headlights and rest of the truck.
Silver may work too, which may match the bumper and wheels well. It depends on the color scheme you're looking for.

I would take it off, but it honestly looks like *** lol. Do to way back when "n00b" painting. So it's NOT coming off to say the least. I just wana change it up for now. I am considering a stx or sport grill later on.

Thanks John. I'm still going to make it shiny if I go black. It'll be a glossy finish. I guess I'm just getting tired of it being too flashy lol.

For now I'd like to see the black on every other line, looks kind of like the newer Explorer grills. It looks good.
