To be honest i would say just try and wait until someone sells theres but just incase your still wanting to paint it just keep in mind, the can spray wont match the factory paint and the paint will hold up as long as you prep the bumper before you paint it. You will also see whats called "orange peel", and when I say orange peel, the finish will look like a orange peel and if you dont paint the bumper evenly, youll have blemishes in the paint.......with all that being said...my opinion is to just wait for a deal. You might want to just try and contract random members and see if there willing to let there go

Another suggestion is to try a junk yard. Find another painted bumper and work on it until its done OR have it Line-X'd. I hear they can color match with the Line-X these days. However, if you have plans to put an all-pro bumper, then save your money and use that cash towards the lift, tires, wheels, etc. I'm sure there is something else you can do with it. If not, I've got some suggestions for you.

I happened upon a slightly rashed 2005+ front bumper this weekend on the side of the interstate and decided to pick it up. It's currently painted blue but has a noticeable dent and road rash, but I thought I might be able to repair the dent and get it touched then possibly painted silver to match my truck.

I've been looking all over for one for sale or for someone who has successfully painted their stock black bumper and fenders, but have had no success in finding either. However upon my inspection of this bumper I found on the side of the road, it appears that under the spots where some of the paint has been rubbed off the bumper itself has the exact same texture as the stock black bumpers that come on the non TRD, SR5 models.

I'm wondering if anyone has bought an OEM bumper from Toyota? Do they come painted, primed, or could this bumper that I found just be a stock black bumper that someone took a chance on painting?

Also if you live in the Baton Rouge area and lost your bumper on the side of the road and want it back, let me know. It's sitting in my garage.
