    I ordered my end caps from @Roman painted. Turnaround from order to my house was less than a week. Thought about wrapping and line-x but in the end, decided that I wanted the front painted bumper to match the rear painted bumper. I love the look and the paint is a dead-on match to the factory. That's my 2 cents. Good luck!!

    I should add, my powdercoated caps almost match the color and texture of the plastic bumper center.

    I had mine powdered to match (MGM) bad choice. Well the color swatch looked dead on but the end result came with a little blue hue. Only positive about it is now there is a surface to paint to.

    I did the same thing. Ended up getting them painted over the powder coating. I spent more in the end which I hate doing.

    Unfortunately I'll be doing the same thing. Cost aside it'll look factory and bomb!

    Sick looking truck! If you don't mind me asking, what'd it cost to get the line-x coating done on your end caps? I'm looking to do the same to mine but will likely go with white instead of black.
