What do you all think? Painted bumper

So here is the truck, I always like to get other peoples ideas and see what they are doing with theirs. I'm still undecided on the black prerunner style bumper. I was maybe thinking of painting it white? Maybe change the grill somehow? As you can see the truck has the two tone paint with the grey rockers, otherwise I would go with the white out look that looks sweet.

Other thing, What about getting rid of these useless mirrors? I was thinking maybe trying to find the white ones w/ signal that come on king ranches, or just painting some black signal ones all white. What do you all think?

Any other ideas you guys have would be great!

Ill try and get a better picture on here ASAP

Useless mirrors, get a new set used, or go to this place that everybody has been using in the past couple weeks, discountmirrors.com

I would leave the prerunner bar black, but paint the grill white, FWIW

I like that prerunner bumper! I would paint the grill and bumper black. I HATE chrome and will be doing mine as soon as I grow a pair!

I don't care for the 2010 mirrors but I would use the 99-03 towing mirrors. My truck was a white out truck done by Western Hauler. I had the white grill like yours. I switched to the 05 grill and may take off the inner honey comb part and paint it white. I had white door handles as well, but it was a pain touching up the paint all the time so I put the SS covers on. I want billet door handles powder coated white, but at $200 a pop it is going to have to wait awhile. I would leave the bumper chrome, if you paint it white it would look awesome, but scraping all the bug juice off would be another pain. A bedliner would be the way to go. But hey it's your truck, do what you like and what makes you happy. It doesn't matter what I or anyone else thinks. YMMV.
