if you're talking about the black bullbar from westin, its not a chrome insert. it's a brushed stainless insert. i posted a pic of it on my truck somewhere around here.

Honestly I think an all-chrome one would look funky because of the chrome on the front of the grille. I think a black one with a stainless-steel insert would look best. It's hard to say because the black might blend in, but I think the steel would highlight it. It'd be nice if we could have some photoshopping going on to see :yes: :lol:

you've got the chrome appearance package on the front of that truck. adding a chrome or stainless bullbar would be too much. i see it on a daily basis with some people @ my store. too much shine can be a bad thing. subtle accents like door handles, mirror covers, vent visors are ok to add... but take it easy.

I choose the black and stainless. Your in Michigan, and things rust. The black can be repainted in your driveway. Chrome will rust after a few years and look like the sh*ts...

All stainless on a Limited might look out of place, imo. Best choice to me is the black and stainless. :peace:
