I'm having a hard time deciding whether to get escalade handles or just colormatched ones. Here's a pic of my truck for reference:

I'm not sure if there's enough chrome on the truck to tie into the chrome grab on the esky handles, but I really like the look of them...

What do you guys think?

Also, which is cheaper?

man ive got the same problem you have. i want to black my truck out. if i were you id run clear corners, clear out that orange on the front headlights and then run caddy handles. I think that the clear lights would work well with the black up front and that the chrome handles would break up the black on the side of the truck. Thats what im planning on doing.

if theres nto a whole lot of chrome, like in your case, the handles will jump out at you, i say colormatched, unless you ever plan on getting chrome rims

I'm gonna get colormatched handles so it doesn't break up the blacked out theme... I was trying to tie into the polished lip with the esky handles, but the rest of the truck is blacked out, so it'll look good with blacked out handles

thanks for your input

I Would Go Colormatched. Kind Looks Like Your Trying to Pull Off The All Black look With As little chrome as possible. But whichever one you end up choosing im sure that it will look really good. but colormatched :imo

I hope so :hump:

ya i want to see pics cause i also want the colormatched ones. where'd you get them from??
from someone on the forums who had an extra set

Colormatched/escalade depends a lot on the truck. In your case i'd say colormatched.
yeah if I had polished or chrome wheels, I would get escalade for sure...

looking at the 1st and 3rd pics i would go Esky due to the grill and lip on rims looks like your missing a bit of chrome on the side and the handles would be good.

but the 2nd pic makes me wanna go colormatched cause of the bumper on back, could also colormatch the bumper like tnufit said and grill

either way it would be good, but i voted Esky

I agree. The nice thing is, he can always come back later and change out just the pull, not the painted bucket. And sell the body color pull to someone on this site wanting to go colormatched and recoup most of his cost. :bowtie:
