Great looking truck. Did you have your front and rear bumpers painted black? Or did you swap them out?

Thanks.

Me and my buddy painted my bumpers one weekend. Probably gonna redo it in a few weeks after I get back from Indiana. Thinking about either clearcoating it or going with Line-X.

It was a pain...removed the clear and blue paint that it came with stock (it was peeling) then sanded it a little with a brillo pad, then added 4 coats of adhesion promoter. After that, sprayed the whole emblem black, then taped off the portions you see that are blue, then painted them blue. Did my emblems as well...they're black also.

Used a can of that stuff...spray it on, let it sit for about 30 seconds...spray it off with a hose. It's some pretty potent stuff...dont get it on your skin...it burns lol. Oh, and don't let it sit on the surface your working on too long...it will literally melt it. But other than that....it's AWESOME stuff!
