I think I would personally keep it black throughout...or aluminum throughout. If you are trying to save weight with aluminum, you can always paint or powdercoat it black to match what you currently have.

Honestly, Im not sure as I have never done it or actually researched it. I would do a little looking, but I would assume the paint would do ok if you prepped the metal well and used a self etching primer before applying paint.

I like black but thats just me, each to their own. You could have that guy on here that will photoshop it onto your Jeep to see how it looks
