    hey guys ive already blacked out the grill on my SWB and was just wondering what your opinions would be on also spraying the front and rear bumpers matt black along with the stock flares, or just the flares and not the bumpers...

    It's up to you... I wouldn't do it, speedway blue is too nice a colour, I would NEVER cover it up with anything.

    Buy the 5-lug flares and bumpers and sell your SWB ones. You'll probably make bank! (If they are interchangeble :notsure:)

    This, don't have to be 5-Lug, but a base 6-Lug will work too!
