Bumpers

I need to paint my bumpers, where is the best place to get the paint? What color do you think will look the best? The truck is white

White would definitely look the best on your truck if you donot want chrome bumpers.

go with white, unless your truck is two tone.

Napa's probably your best bet. They have Dupont, PPG, Duplicolor, etc...

The truck actually doesnt look bad with the black bumpers. They black breaks up all of the white, kinda like chrome bumpers on a black truck do. I would stick with the black if I were you after seeing how your truck looks. Do you have any side pics to look at?

You'd need to paint the headlight trims too, but it would look pretty sharp.
