Lights - Yes
Caliper Covers - No, not blue not at all, they look cheap. If you need to do something, go ahead and paint them, silver or black would look best, but if you want the accent you could go with blue.
Flaps - None looks best, but if you want them for protection I would go with plain.
Rhino Liner - Yes

Good input guys, the only reason I was thinking blue covers was I was going to do blue under the hood.

Here are the parts I would replace (just in blue instead of the red) and this is the blue I would use.

They come in any color, just not sure the black would "pop" like the blue?

I'm not wanting to paint my caliper because it would be harder to remove if I grew old with the look, with the covers I could just remove them and get them power coated another color if I wanted.

These covers cover the entire brake

Any of these look better?

White lights on the rear....It appears to be a different white than the bumper.

Like dressing in black clothes, two different whites don't blend, IMO.


I think the Orange jumps out. Red....so, yesterday.

I like the blue under the hood. But since your paint scheme is black and white I'd suggest white plumbing. And for the brake caliper covers, black with Silverado in white might be sharp

Like this black truck has done to his.

I'll tap into the trailer plug reverse lights so they only come on in reverse.

Yes or no?
I have a pet peeve where colors are "close". Personal opinion, be conservative with adornments and make sure it looks like it would if the factory did it and it will look function and good.

I had already bought these in white, plan is to see how I like them and if the mis matched color bother me too much I'll just remove them and paint the frame color matched.

I've been debating pulling my tailgate handle off and color matching that as well so I might do them both at the same time.

I would.
I see the light's white turning more yellow (than it is now) with time.

But, I already pointed that out.
Good level/symmetric mounting.
It could very well go unnoticed as an add on....until they light up.
