    Are there any issues swapping chrome oem rear bumper for stock black oem bumper. I have the tow package on mine and want to make sure the stock black bumper has all the same holes as the chrome one for hitch, etc. :confused:

    I swapped mine with an old man who had a 5 lug. He wanted his truck to be more visible so he preferred the chrome and I preferred the black:

    Thread revival alert!!! I am searching for a black rear bumper.
    Does anyone know the part number, or if anyone besides toyota sells them?

    I have a guy that will buy my chrome one for $200...if I can find a black one I would do it in a minute.

    Also the color matched ones, are they just painted? Because the guy that wants my chrome one has a silver one, could I just paint it?

    52151-04050 (toyodiy.com) should be it, but double check.

    yes, color matched is just painted, you could just paint it. i would suggest you get his silver one, then try to trade that for a black one plus cash! im sure there are plenty of silver trucks that would love to have a color matched bumper.

    Yeah that's not a bad idea, I hate to run around without a bumper until I can make a deal for a black one though, but it is not that big of a deal, it would only be for a little while.

    Just put the silver one on "just in case" until you can trade.
