Black or Silver?

Im debating on painting my headlight surrounds black or color matching them silver. I dont like the chrome and mine is a silver jeep. I was thinking of blacking them out only because im going with the black/silver theme.

i have a silver tj and painted them black...looks weird right after you do it, like a racoon, but then you realize how bad the chrome looks when you see it on other jeeps and it starts to blend perfectly. even more so if you are running black and silver on the whole thing.
here is my 00 after it got wrecked but you can see the headlights
