Clear or Smoked corners on my 98 chili red XJ

Hey guys help me decide on either the clear corners and blinkers under the headlight or smoked.

Everything thats black from the factory sport package(bumpers,trim,flares,grille) is newly repainted with Krylon Fusion Satin so I think the smoked black ones would look good but I havent ever seen them on a XJ. I've seen the clear ones on a red one I was looking at buying and they looked good. I just done want the orange ones anymore.

I can get the clear ones cheaper on Ebay for like $38. So, here's a pic of my XJ need yalls opinions.

The clear match the wheels really nice, the smoked match everything else on the Jeep, I say smoke them yourself for a lot cheaper.
