Getting rid of the rest of the chrome

I Have had the Grill surround, grille, mirror caps painted to match. I have gotten rid of the big chrome steps and added best tops. I am going to buy some king ranch bumpers and have them painted. My question is should I paint them black or white?

White....I'm a big fan of color matched. Truck looks damn good, basically exactly what I'm shooting for but in silver.


ETA: If you're considering black why not pick up a can of Plastidip black and do the bumpers? Leave it on for a few days and if you don't like it it'll peel right off.

go white with the bumpers. White is the new black! I will take a well done white pickup over a black pickup any day of the week.

Thanks for the help!!! I was kinda leaning towards the white anyway. I think it will be a really clean look. If anyone wants to sell or trade some king ranch bumpers let me know.
