    My laptop screen sucks so I thought the bumper was black lol

    I would either:

    - paint the bumper and grill black (matte finish)
    - match the grill to the bumper color

    Although I think color matching the grill and bumper to the truck's color would look real good, I would not do it because I like the rugged look that black/gray bumper & grill give to the truck (that's why I haven't painted mine).

    Ambitious and great looking = color match. Nice upgrade = black.

    Just be very careful removing that grille!! I broke all but two clips on mine and eventually had to buy an eBay replacement, which fit GREAT by the way and only cost me $49 including shipping.

    Either black or color match but, paint the outer marker light rings too! Looks tacky being chrome/silver.

    The outer marker ring has faded into white. I would paint that also.

    04prerunner i would like some fender flares but all my money goes into trying to pay off the Honda Pilot in the back of the pic.

    TRD7 You can have my bumper in 6 months when toyota gives me a check.
