Default RAM ST Bumper Cover

I have a 4th Gen ram ST with a front black bumper cover. I'd like to have it match the rest of the truck. Can this plastic piece be painted? Or is there a place you can buy a pre painted part for a reasonable price?

Yes. 16 is the correct part. It sounds like the best route is to purchase primed one. Then get that painted rather than painting the black plastic bumper from the factory. What is a fair price to pay to paint a part like that?

I also had the black plastic cover on my truck and purchased the paintable piece for my truck, what you get is also just black plastic but smooth rather than with a texture.

The body shop needs to use the proper paint that is flexible but otherwise the correct part made the painting much easier for them.
