Opinions welcome

I saw a truck just like mine today, minus the lift, and noticed the guy had removed his wheel well trim. I thought it looked pretty good, so, I took off the trim on the drivers side to compare. What do you guys (& gals[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]) think? Does it look better off, or on? I'm leaning towards off, but still not sure yet. I'll put up a pic of each to help. By the way, the pic with the trim is the pass. side flipped over to help keep it in perspective.

Re: Opinions welcome

I definately prefer off. I took all the side moulding and chrome trim off both my trucks. Especially on a dark colored truck, makes a big difference.

<font face="Times New Roman">
<font color=green>Definately off. Might be diferent if you had the Chrome-O-Rama®™ look going on like some others in here who shall remain nameless... With the black bumper adn such it looks way better without. I'd lose the rubber cladding on the sides too, but that's just me.

Re: Opinions welcome

Yea, I like it without the trim. By the way, what size is your lift? your truck looks damn good.

Without the trim looks way better. I left mine on and painted em black and just peeled off all the other stickers and body trim. It makes the chrome mirrors and bumper look a little gaudy though.

Re: Opinions welcome

Even though I am a fan of chrome I am going to have to say it looks ALOT better with it off. You might start a trend here because that looks KEWL. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img]
