    Matched color paint from auto zone for the grille. Powder Coating wont be cheap (depending where you go) if the goal you are trying to achieve is to have a black wheel look till you get new ones.... Might just spray them with plasti-dip.

    I'm wanting a big bull bar, but only if it has a mirror finish.

    Does your truck really sit up that much higher in the front? Or is it just where its parked?

    Look for some local powder coating. It might be cheaper than you think. There's one right down from the road from me that's only about $50 for a bumper.

    Have fun removing all the chrome. It looks pretty damn slick when you're all done.
