Default Hate the plastic

Hey guys. I have a 2013 ram sxt and I have the chrome bumper and chrome grill but there is a black plastic price in between that I cannot stand. I find it makes the front end look cheap. Can I order a color matched piece or paint it or what is my best option? Attached picture is not my truck mine is flame red. But you will see what I mean.

is it Flat or textured? If its flat it has to be sanded so it can be painted..

You will need to buy one that is smooth, they usually come primed, in order for the paint to look good. Dont paint anything textured.

You can buy a paintable upper bumper cover from LMC truck for $130. Check out their website. I have the same thing on my truck that I plan on changing eventually but since my truck is black it's not as big of a deal for me.
