    no but trust me, its worth it..use herculiner on the rear as it is most durable. just be careful because if you f*ck it up it looks like crap.

    I painted my bumpers (twice) on my F350, once I carefully sanded them down, used real (two stage) automotive paint, and a couple years later they started flaking off. So, I stripped them with a sand balster to bare metal primed 'em, and sprayed them again. IMO that's the foolproof way to get paint to adhere to a (formally) chrome bumper.
