    Thanks for this Chris. I've researched it, Camelback has one here for $190: https://parts.camelbacktoyota.com/p...r=5310004481E0&vehicleid=421014&siteid=214329 It's listed as bronze, so not sure if it's actually pyrite Mica.

    I was able to find the color in a rattle can from www.automotivetouchup.com , seems highly reviewed and the can + clear coat + primer would cost about $40.

    I plan on cutting out the grill anyway to do the customcargrills mod, so not sure what the best route is...

    For the rear bumper, yeah the chrome is pretty ugly. eventually I want the high clearance steel bumper, but for now, plastidip may be the best option. Did you have any issue with the plastidip sticking to the chrome? IF the color match from automotivetouchup works out good on the grille, i may buy a bigger can and just get a body shop to spray it. Another option for rear bumper is a matte black vinyl wrap, not sure how much that would cost though.

    Did my bumper covers with Rust-Oleum bedliner. Just sand them first, won't peel off like plasti-dip

    I did plasti-dip on mine and it's held up great. Just make sure it's clean then go to town with it. But rattle canning it with Rust-Olem is a better option but be sure to sand it a little like Brad said

    I had no problem with the dip sticking to the chrome. That is actually why i tried it instead of color match paint or other options, because I read a ton and it looked like nothing else would stick without proper prep of the chrome, which including scuffing the entire thing. I'd like to sell mine when I get a color matched, so i didn't want to do that.

    Honestly it was really easy, and I am really pleased with the look and how it has held up. All i did was wash it and then wipe down with alcohol and let dry. I did remove the license plate, and some other stuff, including the plastic bumper covers on top to make spraying easier and so that when i put them back on no chrome would be showing.

    I've taken it through automatic car washes tons of times, and hit it with a pressure washer, still looks like the day i did it. I even backed into a little concrete outcropping in my parking deck at work trying to get too close to the wall and scuffed a hole where the chrome showed through. Literally just pulled off the hanging bit of dip, resprayed 3 coats, 10 min apart, and now i can't even tell where it was.

    Anyone have any need for some stock sport wheels? Think they’re missing 2 center caps

    For the record, I've plasti dipped my chrome bumper then painted over it with color match and clear coat. It's held up pretty well the past year or so

    How bad you need to get rid of them?

    That's an interesting idea.... plastidip the bumper since the plastidip will stick to chrome, then color match spray the bumper so it sticks to the plastidip. Might be worth testing on the Chrome grill surround, in theory, if the paint doesnt match, it could just peel off since you are essentially pulling of the plastidip as well.

    Can't you strip chrome off plastics with oven cleaner or bleach or something? At least that's what a lot of the guys do who paint their headlights when doing retrofits.

    Edit: for the metal bumpers it prob wouldn't work but for the grille it would.

    I was going to do this for my bumper. From what I read, this will work as far as adhesion, but it makes the plastidip not plastidip, like it won't peel off anymore and becomes a huge pain in the ass to remove. But if you don't care about ever removing it, that should work fine.

    Also side note, I decided to do the bumper this way after I experimented with it on my front grille emblem. Did the emblem back in 2013 still holding up well.

    I mean, if he just wants someone to take them away that'd be the push I'd need to get 255/80/17's... haha.

    Haha. He’s not giving them away. But they’re cheap. Think he’s asking $200 for them. He’s supposed to be getting me some pics of them.

    YO FELLAS! Saw a ~13' Silver Access Cab Sport with steel plate bumper and winch with TRD 16" Beadlock wheels and a matching shell drive through my neighborhood today in Gainesville. Anyone got any leads on who this could be? Hopefully my new neighbor?

    a lot of bad ass stuff
    Does any one have experience with Rotopax, jerry cans, or VP racing fuel jugs?
    Looking for any feed back that you may have.
    trying to decide on if I want to go rotopax, jerry cans, or VP fuel jugs ( https://www.amazon.com/VP-Racing-Fu...id=1520765792&sr=8-9&keywords=racing+fuel+jug ). From what I have read and seen, the VP product looks good and supposedly pours out rather fast compare to the others. The only problem is I'm looking into having this mounted to a tire swing out, and I am unable to find a holder that will safely secure these to the back. With Rotopax and Jerry cans, I can find everything I would need, but the cost is significant in my opinion.
