Need opinions

I am looking to get my front and rear bumpers powder coated or maybe linexed. I have not decided yet. I have an oxford white 250 with the puablo gold bottom. I would like to get the bumpers colored to match the puablo gold bottom but I am wondering if this will look good? I know the king ranches come this way but they also have the tan color bumper steps. I am thinking about leaving the steps black and only coating the chrome part of the bumpers. I just need opinions on this. I know the black and tan will contrast but I dont want it to be in a bad way. I am going to get a linex bed liner and have decided on getting a black one to match the black trim around the top of the bed. I originally had thought about changing it all out to the tan trim and getting the tan bed liner but all that trim add up when you dont really need it. I am open to all suggestions.

If you line-x your front bumper in tan then I would definatly Line-x the bed the same color.

I have thought about that. I am not sure that I will be happy with the linex finish on the bumpers.

I don't know that Line-X is the best for longevity. There's a member on here, BenBou00 who bought Jesse from MBRP's old truck that had bumpers and rockers Line-Xed and he has said it's not holding up perfectly, coming up around edges in some spots I think. Jesse took amazing care of the truck when he had it, and Ben probably does too so even in perfect conditions it's coming up a bit.
