    I have a radiant red TRD off road double cab. It has a stainless bull bar (which is coming off soon cause I decided I didn't like it) and stainless Westin tube steps. I want to have them painted black and was wondering what yall recommended. Should I spray paint them with stuff I can get from Home Depot, and if so, what kind should I get? Or have them powdercoated? I'm not big into offroading or rock climbing. Just the occasional weekend camping/hiking/fishing/hunting trip that might bring me down a muddy road. Thanks for the help.

    bump. Anybody? Chrome, stainless westin step bars. Would I need to sand, prime, then paint? Or is there a product that can just be applied directly to the chrome that would actually stick? Or would it be better to just sell them and get black ones that I want? Though unfortunately there's no way in hell I'm spending 400 on new bars. But I've seen some westin black step bars on amazon for around 150. Thoughts?
