    I want to order a light bar but first I want to know if there's a paint that will match the color and if possible texture of the black plastic part of the bumper in the new 2012 models. [​IMG]

    You should try rustoleum Bed liner spray, texture wont be the same, but the color will be damn near the same and the bed liner texture might actually be pretty close.

    Here is a pic of it when i used it on a set of step bars.

    I also used this stuff on a couple of my previous trucks and it worked out great. Will be much more resistant to chipping and flaking off compared to spray paint also. Just coat your grill and that center bumper section and it will all look the same for sure then. :) I was thinking about doing that to my 12' also but I'm thining about coating the rear bumper too. Not liking the chrome at all.

    I used it on my NFAB's, grille inserts, and lower valance, along with those steps pictured previous, looks great and very easy to use. And durable. I used the "body armour" bed liner spray before and didnt care for it cause it came out clumpy, this stuff is great, and when i get my light bar and RBG on friday thats what i will use again.
