I am frustrated by a problem similar to yours I want to order a new Ram 1500 but cannot order the Laramie Longhorn with the body colored bumpers. Nor can I order the Sport with the 3.0 Diesel or in the color I want. The only other model with body colored bumpers does not come with all the high end options. Still not sure what I am going to order other than the Diesel.

I have a 2500, so if there is anyone with 2500 that has factory white bumpers and wants chrome, let me know.

The guy at the body shop said you could sandblast it and use some special primer on the chrome, but will chip or crack easy. So doesn't sound worth it.

I think i'll get paintable bumpers and get them painted. Anyone know where I could get paintable bumpers at a good price? Up here in Canada, parts are always more expensive. I live in Saskatchewan, about 3 hours north of Minot,ND

I've got a suggestion for you: Use PlastiDip. They make it in white, and I think they even have a clearcoat that you can spray over it, to give it a shiny finish (rather than matte). I plastidipped all of the chrome on one of my previous trucks (black) and it held up great for over a year and a half (I sold the truck, so I peeled off the plastidip). I just recently plastidipped all of the badges (and door handles) on my new 2014 Ram 1500.

Buy (or order online) a can or two and try out the smaller items first to see how you like it and how it turns out.

And by the way, it sticks to chrome just fine. Just make sure you use 5-6 coats so that it holds up well and is easy to peel off in the future if you want to. I used about 4 coats and I maybe had 4 or 5 small dings missing on my front bumper due to rocks.
