Just wondering if you'd trade your chrome bumpers/grill for my black bumpers grill? I am in Elizabeth, so I could swing on by and you can take a looks/see if that would work for you.

Pearl2012 - Thanks for the offer, but I have decided I want to go with color matched bumpers. If I traded with you, I would still have to pay a lot to have them painted to match my truck.
I am probably going to buy new bumpers. If you are interested in purchasing my 'old' (in perfect shape) chrome bumpers, let me know.

OP look up local chrome plating shops in your area and find out how much it would be to have the chrome removed to the nickel underneath. It is a chemical process and is not that involved. Nickel can be sanded, glass beaded or VERY lightly sand blasted but NOT recommended because it is very abrasive. Then primer paint...
I think no matter what route you go it aint gonna be cheap.

Scene some post on here where you could buy primed new bumpers for 180ish shipped, that was the front, dont know the rear bumper cost. If you went that route and dropped off bumpers ready to be painted, im sure you would be looking in the 600 ball park total, bumpers and painted. To cut down cost you install bumpers and grill, not that hard. Then sale your bumpers on craigslist to recoup some of your money

So, I purchased new primed bumpers - both front and back. They should arrive this week. Then I need to paint them/ get them painted. I also got a new grille coming and will paint it or get it painted. The bumpers and grille will be for sale soon. Let me know if anyone is interested.
