'06 grille and headlight opinions

Hey guys. Ive on a 06 1500 slt. Its PXR metallic black. Im gonna paint the grille shell body color. I have two grille's, my stock one on the truck is chrome with chrome bars, the other is chrome with black textured bars. Which do you guys think i should paint? I was thinking that the black grille with the chrome bars being the only chrome on the truck would look pretty good. Also i want to paint the chrome inside my headlights. Any tips on removing the lens. I removed the lens on my dakota lights by just throwing them in the oven for a bit at low temp. Anyone done this with these lihts? Thanks.

Jut the billet looks good too. I prefer all the plastic body matched.

Ok thanks guys. I took my headlights apart tonight and painted them. I just finished spraying the clear on them. My grille shell and bumper insert are ready to go. Ill prime them in the morning and paint them tomorrow night.

Maybe you can help me since you have an 06.
I cant stand the reflector on the bottom of my headlights.
Is there anyway to remove them?
Rather not spend $200 or more on the 07 headlights at the stealership.

You could take them apart and paint them red. Cant remove because of the light behind there.

Black with the chrome inserts does look pretty sweet

I dont know how you would be able to remove them and have it look good. I thought about leaving them out but looked kinda hacked. not really finished. you could always paint over them i suppose.
