I guess it depends on the look you're trying to achieve. I don't know if they would have been painted from the factory or not. Surely somebody smarter than me could tell you.

One of these days I'm going to get around to putting the chain on my tailgate, and I will probably paint it black unless I can put it together without ruining the plating.

If your chain is bare metal, it will most likely rust. I would probably look into doing a blued finish if you don't want paint. That will at the very least help keep rust in check.

Even if your pickup was NOT painted black, it seems to me if the chains were on the bed when it was painted, the chains would mess up the paint. Therefore my guess from a logical standpoint is they would be black.
