Colormatch maybe? Would look really good on a silver truck I think!

I'd have to say keep the ARB. If it's just looks you are going for it's your call. Is there anything other than looks that is a factor? Good looking truck BTW.

Keep as is. Silver and black compliment each other IMO.

I voted to keep it but if I were you, I'd look into color matching it.

I personally don't like the looks of the ARB bumper, but it does look better than stock. Keep it.

if you get bigger wheels the ARB will look less out of place..

I will take the ARB off your hands if you don't like it


In all seriousness I don't know why in hell you'd want to switch back to the plastic POS.



Unless you're THAT into the way your truck looks.

The ARB is one of the biggest bumpers out there, but it still looks way better thn the stock plastic bumper. If you want to get a cleaner look swap out those big ass lights up front, just and idea.....

Depends on what you are trying to do. I personally don't care for the look of that ARB bumper... if you don't need a heavy duty offroad bumper, sell it or trade for stock

I'm counting down the days until I get the ARB. Granted, that's maybe 1,000 days off, but still, I can count!

Although I'm fairly certain there are many, many members on here who would gladly trade their OEM bumper plus enough cash for one of those prerunner style bars.
