    I have a new '09 reg. cab 4-cyl. with the unpainted black plastic front bumper - and I'm considering looking into getting a body shop paint it the body color of my truck (Magnetic Gray).

    Has anyone done this? If so, were you happy with the results? Got pics?

    Thanks

    Im sure it will work, however, it is not recommended. The front base bumper is the textured plastic, like the flares, and is not manufactured to pained. I think a few people have done it though.
