    Do you plan on painting bumper yourself? If so with what paint? Bed liner?

    for the front grill you just have to sand it all down and get as much chrome off and just use krylon fusion paint bc its just plastic underneath the chrome crap. I did the emblem and the inside of the grill black. Just havnt done the chrome part yet. As for the rear bumper your best bet is to get it powder coated. It will hold up a lot better than painting it yourself.

    Painting a chrome bumper would most likely give you a bad paint job on chrome which would be a PITA to get looking right and keep it that way. You'd have to sand the hell outta the chrome at the least and sandblast it at best to get good adhesion not to mention the intermediate steps of application. If you really hate your chrome bumper I'd sell it to someone who wants it and then buy an aftermarket or make one/ have one made. My experience has been painting chrome should be a last resort.
