    Hello all!

    So any and all of you are welcome to give advice/two cents/experiences in here. I am looking to delete my chrome from my bumpers/grill on my truck. I have been searching for awhile on here for answers but nothing has "hit me" as "do this."

    I am wondering what is the most cost effective way to delete the Chrome from my bumpers? I am not trying to be cheap, just have a limited budget at this time. Short of finding someone on here who has a Super White TRD pro that is willing to trade bumpers and grill for mine, it appears it may be best just to buy new Pro grille and bumpers then get the surround and bulge colored matched?

    I was looking at possibly wrapping them in vinyl, saw plasti dipping is an option but not a true color match, Etc. I have a feeling I should just wait until I have the funds to either have them painted, or buy PRO grille and bumpers and sell all my chrome stuff.

    Let me know your advice/opinions or if anyone has a super white and willing to trade! let me know! LOL Thanks again

    Do yourselves a favor. Buy a paint gun from Habor Freight ($30 with coupon), Order color match paint, primer and clear from automotive touchups ($180 1 quart each), Remove bumpers, strip off chrome, clean, clean, clean. Start painting. You dont need any special skills. You'll be happy you did!

    Ive dont door handles, bumer ends, Hood Bulge, rear bumpers. TRD pro grille came painted white!

    Has anybody bought/installed the bumper end caps from partsgeek? All four for around $250. Matte black in color, with or without sensor holes. I'm thinking about it but would like to get some feedback as to quality, fit and finish.

    Wrap you have to replace like 2 or 3 years. Food for thought.

    I just went for it...I bought the paint matched TRD Pro grill, hood bulge and bumper ends from @Roman. I looked into wrapping, dipping but figured a color matched set was the way to go. I'm still waiting for it all to get here and when it does I'll post some pics.

    Hey Lawrence, those lights look familiar...ha ha. How do you remove the chrome from the metal bumper corners to prep for paint? I agree with spraying. I did my grille surround and mirror caps. I've primed the front bumper corners but it's gonna fail 'cause I've got chrome underneath.

    To get rid of the chrome use a 160grit sand paper and a sander to make it easier. Then then 600 and put your primer over the 600 grit. Using any good primer will allow for best adhesive

    Thanks, that's pretty much what I did but I think I should've used self etching primer like I did on the grille, that stuck really well! Fyi, I've been sending headlight shoppers your way.

    So Update - Roof is now black, bumpers are black, and this Saturday the grill will be black. Storm Troopers engage. Pics to come next week.

    I also bought the center console divider for now to organize my console better. I also decided that 31 inch bar in the bullge was too small and bought a 41 inch!

    @Roman I believe I PM'd you in the past about muffler/exhaust. I know you are probably busy - Ill send you another one! Basically looking for a slight change in sound.
