    Want to trade my chrome SR5 rear bumper for your base model black bumper. Mine is in excellent condition from 2013 model with 7 k miles. Your trade must be in excellent condition too. Located in San Antonio...no shipping.

    Thought about dipping it. Probably will if there's no taker on the deal. Thx for the suggestion.

    ^x2. Dip it. Mine has held up great for a year +. Looks factory. Just spray on plenty of coats. I think I put around 4 on mine. Plus if you end up not liking it you can peel it off! Plus it makes you proud that you did it yourself, even if it is just spray painting ( not swapping axles or suspension )

    did you remove the bumper to dip it? If so, why didn't you just paint it?

    I really don't care for my rear chrome bumper either, and have had no luck finding someone to trade. I dipped my front grill and emblem to cover up the chrome, most likely will be doing the same to the rear bumper.

    Good luck!
