I went with a 2 tone paint, but I really like my painted rear bumper. I'm kinda on a low chrome kick right now. I left the plastic pieces black.










By the way, I like how your headlights turned out. What sort of a job was that?

If you paint too much, it's gonna make the truck look too busy IMO..I Painted my door handles, grille, front and rear bumper then called it quits..I'd say leave it alone, the chrome on the bumpers goes with the chrome rims..

:agree2: It can be over done, and its borderline there already. Too much paint and not enough to break it up just tends to look goofy

do paint the bumpers.... go back to black mirrors, and black out the b-pillar. i wish i woulndt have passed on this color, it is my favorite and i think a sport version would kick .

I like the look of the painted lights, keeps it clean without jumping out at you. I really like the idea of black mirrors and B pillar or even just the b-pillar to make it look like one big window. Do you have a head on shot with the painted lights?

why not look into a vinyl wrap for your bumpers, im doing this exact thing on my white 08, didnt want to paint the chrome, so i am going to try and have them wrapped, should hold up fine.

Warlock, do you know where to get something like that done? I was going to paint my chrome but if I can find wraps for reasonable then I will do that. Thx.

Painted black would look alright. Ive yet to see body-color painted headlights (other than black) that look good
