sounds good bigslick

6gunfighter- so your sayin just the stacks black and leave the bumpers?

it seems like a lot of money to do the bumpers. unless yall know somewhere to get black bumpers for a good price and black stacks at a good price is a little hard to find too

I would leave the bumpers chrome and you can always black your own stacks I think it looks pretty darn good just the way it is!!! But if your rims are matte black the stacks to match would be pretty sick too..Steve

This is just my opinion, but I say black it all out. I blacked out my true blue metallic and haven't regreted it once. I painted the chrome stack before I installed it with header paint and love it.
