    I'm up in the air, but feeling like there is a lot of white already and might go with black bumper ends. Any info to help me choose ...

    Ok, I'll swim upstream and vote for black. I think it would look good with the dark center valence and close proximity to the tires.

    Still, black wouldn't look bad at all!

    Did you take the front center piece off when you vinyl wrapped the chrome pieces?

    I like the white but kinda noticed that everyone does them white with a white truck.. Kinda Leaning towards the black so not the same as everyone. maybe do plasty dip, get a feel for them first hand. Easy to change color if just doesn't look good.

    Mos' def' White...

    And I like the stance of your truck. I'd be debating white or black fender flares as well.

    I'll drive around for a few days and see how I like it, as of this moment I like the look from the front but from the side it's kind of got me thinking... White rear bumper but black front hmmm at least the chrome is gone ...

    Yeah, I like that as well. Black doesn't look bad either.

    I'd do color matched but it's all about personal preference.

    The black looks awesome, but I like the color match option. Can't go wrong either way

    I VOTE BLACK!!! I have had so many people turn heads since you rarely see more black on trucks now-a-days here is my rig. Dont mind the chrome surround and bulge - that will be turned black this Saturday!

    Looks good! Maybe you mentioned this somewhere, but you mind sharing what it cost to have the bumper ends wrapped in black vinyl? Want to ensure I'm getting a fair price....

    Thanks.

    No worries happy to help in any way. I had a buddy and his friend do it for me (his friend works for a custom car shop who does wrapping, electronics, etc.). I more than likely got a friendship discount. In all I paid 600$ to have my roof wrapped ($200), front bumper wrapped ($100), rear bumper ($100), Surround and hood bulge ($150) and gave him $50 to debadge and plasti dip front emblem and side Tundra Emblems. This included materials and labor. I have had others tell me that pretty much any shop that does Tint could do it for 100$ per square foot. I went with my buddy because I trust him and he can always fix it technically at no cost.

    Thanks for the info - sounds like you did get a pretty darn good deal. Called a local place today and they gave me a rough quote of $250 for the front and rear end caps in a flat black. Gonna check a few other places and see what other prices I get. Thanks again.

    What lift and tire size are you running. Your truck looks really good
