Default Transparent nav bar

Does anyone know how to setup the nav bar to be transparent on 4.4.2? Im using gravitybox and I cant find a setting for it. Ive done searches but the only answers I can find are for the JB version of gravitybox. Its already transparent on my homescreen with my wallpaper by default, but when I use Chrome or any other app it's just black. Thanks for any help.

Xposed module tinted status bar also has a setting to make the nav bar match. Maybe kind of what you are looking for

Well I tried it out, I couldn't seem to get it to do what I wanted, because even though the nav bar was transparent, the screen seemed to be still scaled for the nav bar. The only way I can get the screen to scale to take the space of the nav bar is expanded desktop mode and use the pie controls, which I don't really like. It just seems like there would be a way. I don't really need a black background to my nav bar, I know where the buttons are in my head, just the outline of the buttons would be enough for me. If I was able to see what was underneath the buttons that would make my screen seem bigger and better for reading and browsing and such.

Found the perfect solution, there's a module for xposed called app settings. It allows you to force immersive mode for any app you select, along with lots of other useful settings. Immersive mode works even better than a transparent nav bar because you can select items that would be under the nav bar.
