Default Chrome vs Flame Red? Opinions wanted

OK - I don't want to go crazy with mods - yeah right! Well maybe I do. Have seen several going from chrome inserts to black. I'm thinking keep the chrome bars but maybe go with a PTM red grille surround. Whadda ya think? Chrome or red. (disregard the sloppy quick photoshop work).

OR - black - as suggested by a couple of guys - see follow up posts and pic!

Here's the whole truck...



and the closeup chrome...



Now the red



Back to chrome...



and one more red...

OK - so here's the black. Interesting... but does it look like someone just forgot to paint it - or that I wrecked it and replaced it with the wrong color?? Not sure about this option... guys?

Red!

Black looks to "off". Red matches awesome.

I ain't a chrome fan, but its what floats your boat in the end man. Remember that

I vote red. Not a fan of any bit of chrome on my trucks. And I think the black looks like you just haven't got around to painting it.
Of course the only opinion that matters is yours, but that's my .02

Chrome w/ black insterts or all chrome is my vote.
Color match the black on the grille emblem to red and make it pop!!
