Line x oem bumpers yay or nay?

What's up everyone? So I'm having my rockers and fender flares sprayed with line x next week. I'm also having them spray my aftermarket grille shell. I'm wondering if I should just have them spray the oem bumpers while I'm at it? They are already pulling the rear bumper to spray the rear pocket. And wouldn't be much more to pull the front bumper. I'm trying to get away from the whole chrome theme, Gets old real quick lol! Plus black means business. Just looking what others think!? Thanks guys!

Go for it ! Git er dun ! It looks great and its easy to look after . I'm doing the front of my
o4 Harley as soon as I can . Can't wait to get rid of that gross orange bumper on the front
of my truck! I did the bottom rockers , doors and rear bumper and love it .A quick rub
with oil on a rag when cleaning the rest of the truck and it looks fresh all the time .

I vote power coating.. A powder coating company can factory match the paint of your truck, powder coating will make the bumper protected while giving you the factory color.. Im doing this in the next week or so... front and back bumpers for $200..

I personally would leave the chrome. I like a little bit of chrome just to keep a little bit of contrast.

I used bed spray on my front bumber (was black anyways), bed rails and the plastic caps for the rear bumper. I really recommend it, its awesome. Never stays dirty or scuffs. Napa sells the spray stuff for like $8 a can
