Question powder coating bumper color matching

I would like to powder coat my new front and rear bumper replacements the stock adobe two tone color.

Does anyone know if there is a powder color out there that would match exactly. I already have a place nearby that can do the work.

Thanks

I would buy a used black painted bumper to start with rather than try to color a chrome bumper. Or are you wanting to change the color of the KR bumpers?

I think he's saying he got aftermarket bumpers and is getting them powdercoated too match the original bumpers.

Any powdercoater should be able to match it with no problem.

That is correct. I got aftermarket bumpers that are powder coated black. However my truck is the forrest green adobe two tone so it wouldn't look the best.

I went with the Fab Fours black steel front and the ranch hand legend rear.

According to the ranch hand guy his powder coated only has a desert tan looking color and I should get him to paint them. I was trying to figure out if someone has that adobe color that has a little sparkle to it to match almost exactly and what color code that would be.

I'm meeting with a powder coated here in a couple weeks to see what all he can do.

Paint them. At least the front. Much easier to touch up all of the rock chips.

But if you're determined to powder coat them, they can be color matched almost perfectly. You just need to find the right place to do the work.

The quote to paint and powder coat are the same. I figured the powder coating will be a little tougher and then I can have a good base color to paint over instead of the black powder coat in the future.

Sorry about going a little off topic, but to the OP, why did you go with two different bumpers? Most of the time people stay with the same company for both bumpers.

To have a winch with the ranch hands you have to get their new style that uses box tubing instead of round tubing. Didn't like the look as much. Fab fours front is amazing quality and is an Aggie company so part of it was supporting them. However I wanted the rear backup lights which I did not see with the fan fours and didn't like how they looked as much.

Front: 11-13 Ford SD Black Steel Winch Bumpers

Back: Back Bumpers - Quality Ranch Hand Product

In the back bumpers you can see the sport underneath wich has the square tubing. Just not as much of a fan of it.

Correction the fan fours did have lights. Just looked a little more blocky. Like the classic ranch hand better I guess. Both allows me to use the stock hitch so it was off of looks only.
