    Hey Everyone,

    So I'm looking at getting an off-road bumper for my 2010 White DC and I'm having a hard time figuring out if I want to go Black or have it painted white.. Any ideas... or even Pics?

    Thanks!

    I vote black, via roll on bed liner so it's a fairly tough coating. You can still touch up with a spray can and it looks ok.

    I think white would look really awesome but black would be easier to touch up. I voted black but still love the look of white.

    I love this pic taken from Shrockworks

    Do a custom color Rhino! I had it on my F250 and it worked beautifully.

    I painted it with the proper paint code 2k urethane and it is super durable.

    If (it never did) it scratched it was a simple touch up with the extra bit of paint.

    That is a tough one. I searched all over the web a while back for pictures of white tacos with black/white ARB bumpers... end result = I still couldn't decide. Right now I'm leaning 60% towards black, 39% white, and 1% dark grey.

    Shockworks sells a similar style bumper; they have pictures of it in black and white on trucks I think.

    I think since your trucks white if you paint it to match it looks nice but its more for looks. If you go black then you dont gotta worry about chips and stuff more when you offroad. Either way i dont think you can go wrong itll looks good black or white. I would go black looks good and better clean up.
