Looks good! I think that's the route to go.

I agree to an extent. I like that black and blue. But only if the chrome covers come off my door handles and I can do just the trim and grille in black with my wheels. I don't want it to look like a ricer with a lift kit. Haha

That's because it is Seriously though, I agree, I'd keep the chrome/polished trim on the blue.

What about keeping the trip and bed lining the wheels? The only reason I'm ready considering this is because the winter ruined the finish on my wheels and I need to do something with them. I don't love the chrome but I think it looks good w this color blue. I think the black and blue is good too but looks tacky with all the trim plasti-dipped...

Is painting/powdercoating the wheels an option? Could do a bright silver or something and it would be much more robust.

Painting the wheels is definitely an option. I would really like to do a brushed silver look on the trim and try to repair the wheels then clear or deal them to protect them.

Would the 2006 limited have color matched door handles?

I'm a fan of blacking out everything with the blue.

I personally don't like the blacked out body molding and door handles. Would love to see them body color matched, as then the only breakup of the color scheme is around the windows and then the wheels (which I think looks good).

I agree and my only concern is that the paint is 8 yrs old and fresh color matched would probably look darker. This is driving me nuts!

I prefer something like silver the more i look at it. I wish I could just take the shine off
