    Thanks guys! I did a 3-2 lift, the wheels are fuel ripper 20s, I think the offset was +20. They're wrapped in amp a/t 305/55

    Looks GOOD!

    Are those N-Fab aluminum step bars?
    I was looking into them but was not sure if step was going to be strong/ sturdy enough?

    Those are predator step bars, but I don't think you'd have any issues with the aluminum

    Yes N- fab predator bars- that’s the ones I was looking at

    Want to black out bumper ends?
    Cover with black to match rest of bumper or cement matched vinyl wrap to match body
    Just a cheap fix/ idea

    Lol- I’m in the sign and lighting business- I do some small vinyl apps. on retail stores etc- never done a vehicle wrap- but know the material used is very forgiving- just need heat gun and soft squeegee and Patience!
    Give it a try- lot less $$$. - then replacing
    Good luck
    If I was in KY I’d give u a hand

    I appreciate that, I'm usually fairly patient vinyl wrap looks like a nightmare to me lol. I'll go get it priced around here to see what it would be.. should I go with black or with color-match?

    NP- I would go to a wrap specialist and get samples of both and see which one matches better- might be hard to match cement color
    but then again the black is going to have to be “flat” black to match plastic- I’d pick the best match - either way is going to look good!

    Good luck - post pics when done- I’d like to see

    Im wanting to color match my bumper ends with cement colored vinyl the only Ive found is color x labs. Ive called a few vinyl shops near me and they didnt have a grey that would match cement 1h5

    Yes and color x labs is EXPENSIVE. I think I'm just going to use matte black, but I think I'd need to wrap the middle piece of the bumper too for it to match

    Make sure you get vivid xpo vinyl matte black. Best vinyl that I have applied so far. I got a 5x6ft roll on Amazon for $40 shipped. The vinyl is a bet darker then the center piece. I will take a photo when I get home. Im wrapping the rocker panels on my truck right now. 20180606_064502.jpg

    I sanded mine a little and put on the Medium Grey Monstaliner. It isn't an exact match, but it looks great and will be VERY durable. I didn't remove them when "painting" the liner on. Just used painters tape. Also, the liner directions say to come back about 15min after putting it on and re-rolling it to get more texture. I skipped that part, but there is a bit of texture to it still...

    I'll see if I can get a close-up.

    Here is a better pic. Initially I also did the chrome surround, but wasn't super happy with it so I get a "pro" grill and swapped the surround for Cement. The end caps aren't surrounded by cement, so they look better than the grill piece. Honestly, I don't even notice the color difference any more.

    Oh... and I would HIGHLY recommend going this route over Vinyl. It is very cheap AND it will never need to be reapplied (unlike vinyl). Hell, it is probably more durable than the paint on the rest of the truck!! Never worry about rock chips, light rubbing etc.

    That looks really good, you did a good job applying it.. looks super smooth and even. How did you get it on the top of the bumper without taking it off?

    I just taped the the body piece with painters tape and then used one of the small foam brushes you get from HD/Lowes. The gap (on mine) is about 3/4in between the bumper and body panel. I'm sure if you got down on your knees and looked WAY back in there, you might see a little chrome, but you would really have to try to find it.
