painting the front bottom piece of my truck black

i want to pain the black part just like the picture shows under the grill but the one that this pic has is a decal from sockmonkey
I was thinking of painting it my self instead of putting the sticker what you guys think about this.

If you were going to rattle can it...put the sticker on there instead. If you are going to do it right and use proper automotive paint, then paint it. .02

At least you can pull the sticker off if you screw it up...rattle can, not so much.

x2 ^^. That looks sick though on the Off Road package. Either way you should do it unless you have the sport which color matching seems to be the standard.

Lol my dad used rattle can on his. It's his work truck so he didn't care and he wanted to change it up a little. Looks good for a while but you definitely will be touching it up due to the fact that rocks/bugs hit it and take the paint off. I like the fact that it's easy to touch up and cheap to do, but the vinyl allows you to go back to stock and not be stuck with it that way.

Your truck looks sick...Did you paint the Grill and Mirrors yourself to color match?

The reason I am going for the Off Road...The factory rear Locker. I figure I can paint everything else for less than 1500 it would cost to buy an aftermarket locker. The hood would be the most expensive thing and can live without, but it does look nice.
