    Need some opinions on chrome grille insert. Better with or without? I am sort of leaning towards out.

    I say Nay. Now a nice set of Devil Horns would look great on that black insert.

    Despite the already overwhelming "nays," I feel I should throw mine on the pile as well. Definitely looks better with the black.

    I think you would either need the color matched surround or chrome surround to make that work. Otherwise go back to black.

    Black looks cleaner and less fussy. Probably easier to clean, too.

    Since you color-matched your bumper, I would think color-matching grille surround would look sweet. Personally I am not a fan of all blacked out grills and surround. It looks too much like a work truck, especially on a light colored truck. Maybe you could do something with the emblem like some suggested.
