I am stongly considering getting some black wheels to offset the look a bit. Are there any easy aftermarket options to offset the chrome look? Nothing drastic, I'd rather do it in steps to get to where I like it more.

Don't get me wrong, wouldn't rather have another trim line….no way. Just looking for a little different look.

Thanks!
The easiest method of removing some of the chrome would be the side strips, which can be taken off completely or paint matched. I may switch to black wheels at some point, as I'm not a fan of 20" wheels on a 4x4 anyway; would go all the way down to a 17".

Black wheels are the way to go with a platinum. I had one and hated chrome but I made it work

Removing the side strips is not easy. They have alignment pins on them, so there is holes in the body behind them. Get you some fx/hd headlights and tail lights, a full grille/shell replacement in black, and some black wheels. Check out my build thread. There's a few pics there. [MENTION=156632]mikeyfitz[/MENTION], is your wife still driving the platty?
