My issue with the G2 front end (prior to 2021) has been the single chrome bar on the grille. I really like the blacked out look, but decided to have the grille on my 2020 in chrome. I think it improves the “van like” look. I have the door handles blacked out and will black out the chrome window trim leaving just the grille in chrome. Thoughts?

A little chrome access here and there looks nice IMHO. I think murdering out a truck with everything black is a great, low budget way to make a beater look cool, but I don't care for the look on nicer, newer vehicles.

Thoughts? Here’s my thought. I never ask folks should I, shouldn’t I or what would you do.

I have several posts on this site of my RL cosmetic mods. I never ask, “should I”. But I do welcome comments when done. Good or bad. Right or wrong. Any beautifying (in my biased view) changes I own those.

But when it comes to ANYTHING mechanical I always seek the counsel of the really smart people. Or those who have done the same things.

Gusto!

Wasn't so much a "Should I", but rather just a comment post. I'm doing what I like on it 😊. I agree regarding mechanical things. Some great minds here.

Thoughts you say? Well, I'm your opposite. I hate chrome and working on getting rid of it.

Truck looks great! Are the window visors and hood deflector OEM or aftermarket? Are the window visors in-channel or stick ons? I'm searching for the same accessories for my Ridgeline.

As mine is the same color as the OP, here's what it looks like with a black grille and body color emblem. I much prefer it and I no longer have any chrome trim anywhere on mine.
