Default opinions on paint schemes.

I just had to replace the bed on my truck after a sad accident, so im repainting the whole truck this spring. I am torn between two options either a matte black truck with high gloss black accents (tool box, rims, brush-guard) or a regular gloss black paint job with aluminum accents.

Just trying to gather opinions. thanks in advance

Here are my thoughts

The black on black will look awesome if done right, but has a good chance of looking horrible and tacky if it doesnt come out right, and i have not seen it on anything local in my area.

The black and aluminum is always a good option but i feel like i see it everywhere, and i like to try different things.

This is how my truck sits now....

Wether it be a motorcycle or a truck you can't go wrong with high gloss black.. With either chrome or aluminum accents, maybe some diamond plate accents and diamond plate tool box

I think black/black...But check out the one truck going for TOTM(january/tunaslayer) His truck pulls off a gloss black with black accents and just a hint of chrome and it stands out IMO as not just another black/chrome truck.

Not to hijack your thread but...I was thinking the same but different. Gloss Blk w/Flat Blk accents.
I like better the idea of yours however:
Flat Blk w/Glos Blk accents, just add 1-Blk Cherry Pinstripe where seen from ground level, e/side.
