Painted bumpers!! Finishing Touch in Fountain Hills AZ turned around painting my bumpers in ONE DAY! They look gorgeous and match perfectly.

Bumpers ready for install:

Chin FELL OFF!


Front bumper after:


Rear bumper before:


Rear bumper off:


Rear bumper after:


My Toyota dealer ordered me the wrong grille, or the front end would have been done. Now I have to wait until Tuesday to get the chrome gone!

Thanks. I did not prep and paint the bumpers. I purchased new paintable bumpers from Toyota then had my body shop color match them. The chrome bumpers are now REALLY big paperweights in my garage.

Thanks. Painting over the chrome will not work out so well, but I have seen a few people put bedliner over it. I bought new bumpers and had them painted.

Just added All-Pros A-Arms to my suspension order! Excited to get the truck leveled out for now... I'll start collecting the rest of the suspension parts for when I finally decide on wheels and tires!
