    Don’t do covers, if you have a rim that lets the calipers show, I’d paint them color match your truck, but not covers, they really look cheap.,just remember you become a slave to upkeep the look once you go that route.
    Or bite the bullet and go better brake system, then you get color and killer braking.

    I would not recommend caliper covers. They insulate heat on your calipers and negatively impact your brake cooling. I would paint or powder coat your calipers instead of using caliper covers.
