    I've been searching for a guy who had a color matched plate bumper but cannot find him.

    Wondering, does anyone have a color matched plate bumper(specifically rear) and what brand is it?

    Yes, I have seen one with a SWB front bumper. If you can paint it..its probably been done..just probably not by the person who built it.

    ^^yes it is, Lots of snow squalls here in Ontario (usually) during the winter.

    I don't feel like cleaning out my intake constantly so I just turn it around backwards. ;)

    There are a bunch of pics of a RR Taco with a Red bumper. Not white, but it's another example of color-matched bumper.

    An option for color matching might be colored bed liner to... Should be more durable.

    Nice looking truck! I am defiantly going to invest some money into a plate bumper then color match it. Did you clear coat your bumper?

    Not my trucks, but here's a couple examples:

    (I have this bumper. Solid product if you're shopping. I didn't color match mine as the body guy I know said it would take lots of prep to make it look nice, but I figured I'd just scratch it up anyhow...)
