    Which method won out? I want to color match my bumper ends. Haven't decided which method to use. Either method, I am going to do it. Any input?
    Thanks

    I would imagine touching up plasti-dipped bumper would be easier than wrapped one.

    Go back and read the threads about dipping. They all look great the day they do it. Then after a few months, they all need redone. Personally I would paint them and be done with it. Unless your only going to keep your truck for a year or two.

    I disagree. Having plasti-dipped in the past, it easily lasted over a year through our weather, and numerous car washes. There was only one small touch-up spot that I discovered later on down the road.

    thanks for your input, hadn't considered the maintenance part.
