    I'm not exactly sure what it's called, but I have seen a few trucks with the lower center piece of the front bumper painted a deifferent color. is that a separate piece I can buy, or is the bumper just paintted. It looks awesome when it's a different color. I have a bsp truck and am thinking about painting that piece gray. Any pics would would be appreciated.

    Most people paint it black. You can buy the x-runner piece that goes there but it's black. So any other color besides black has to be painted. I say do the grey. I think it would look cool.

    Yeah, I have always seen it black, looks sick on white and silver trucks. But it wouldn't work on my bsp truck. So there is an xrunner piece? Nice, thank you.

    Yea. X-runners come stock with it I think. It clips on right there.

    You should do yours silver like HBtacoma.

    I would buy his vinyl but I hear it sucks to get on. People mess up a lot. I'm going to call the dealer and see how much. I get 20% off so hopefully that help.

    I covered mine with some black vinyl I had laying around from another project. It was kind of a pain in the ass, but I like it.

    you should check over on XRU.

    The X-runner guys always take them off.. there should be plenty of them floating around over there
