Got a couple done for you, but it seems photobucket is not working at the moment. I will post as soon as I can!

This one is not YOUR truck, but a similar one....

That was more of a gunmetal grey, not black too.

I think black would looks pretty good on your truck. I like that gunmetal colour too, it's a good look.

A guy I used to work with had a white eXtreme with the black powder coated factory wheels. I know that's a whole different look though. He didn't have the visor over the windshield and the running boards below the doors. He also didn't have any chrome on his. It looked sweet though. If it were me I'd just leave it the way it is but that's just my opinion. It's your vehicle and I think you should do what you think looks good.
