My question is, would it look better if I just cleared the headlights or if I cleared and colormatched them?

I vote cleared only. No particular reason other than personal opinion

I vote cleared mainly because ive never came across a set of aftermarket black headlights that I would buy.

If you decide to clear them you can use the cutting method or bake them.

If you colormatch them then definitely use the baking method. The cutting method leaves a nasty line on the side closest to the cab. I did it and the line drove me crazy. Sam also had the same problem when his were colormatched.

I like cleared headlights usually but on a black truck you could go either way

:word: none of that with the baking.

both look good. I sometimes also think that with an all black theme the big chrome lights can look out of place.
