Default Need some advice...

So I have a 2010 Ram 1500, black, ST, with the chrome package. This truck isn't mine but it is pretty much it:



That is stock ^^ I've tinted my windows and taillights. Lookin' to do some major work to it, however I'm a college athlete therefore I don't have time for a job so money comes slow. =[ Some things I want to do are:

- Paint the front and rear bumpers + grill black
- Drop it 2/3
- Can't decide between 22" or 20" Black SRT 10 rims (plus tires)

This is pretty pricey for a college student athlete with no job =[

My first question is how much approx. should painting my chrome bumpers/grill to black cost?

Also just want to know what everyone thinks about these mods.

Thanks, Zac

I'm not much on blacking the grille but painting the bumpers and adding new wheels sounds good.

Painting the bumpers can only be done after the chrome is stripped off. Estimate I got was 1k here in Boise.
