Too much?

I had my daughter photoshop a new grill for me. I was thinking of doing the bedliner approach. But after seeing this, I think it's a little too much. When I add a winch and stinger, I'm thinking the mango behind will be much better visually.

They do color match bed lining at Line X if your looking to bed line but want to keep your color that's what I would do.

True, but at what expense? I like doing things for myself

I'm not sure there all independently owned so the prices are different tell them you will take the grill off and prep it first it should take the price down a lot

Not bad, but I think it'd look better with black flares. The black grill really stands out against all that mango.

That's a good photoshop--if you posted that pic and told us that you bedlined your grille, I don't think anyone would've called you on it!

I think it looks great. If you're going to be putting other black accessories (winch, stinger) in front of it, however, I think you have a good point regarding keeping the mango grille.

Assuming you really do need that winch/stinger, maybe leave the grille as is and add a mountain hood blackout decal (you can get one here) or bedlining your fenders? That'd give you some black accents while keeping the mango behind the winch/stinger. Just a thought.

But, that wouldn't be honest.

I don't NEED the stinger or winch at the moment, but hopefully that will change come spring. Besides, I really like the look of a stinger.

Cool. So maybe leave the grille as is and go for that hood decal or bedlined fenders to scratch your itch for black accents. Whatever you do--post pics!!

I like it & have considered doing it myself. The Mango is a strong color, I like it just the way it is in the photo'. Once you get a winch & bar on there I think it will look real good, If I was getting a new one I would get that color, love it

Try it with the silver accent on the bumper. It's a little harsh as it is.

Have her photoshop on a stinger and winch on both the black and mango grill to give you an idea of what it might look like

It looks good. It'll probably have a little more gloss to it in real life.

Won't work. New XHD bumpers and skid plate are finally in transit. They were out of stock at Christmas time for some reason...

I think what I'll do is wait until I get the stinger and have her do it again. She's a graphic artist, so it only takes her a minute. Me? Considerably longer...
