Default Gen 2 front bumper inserts

I am new to this forum, and have been doing alot of reading. One thing that i was wanting to do to my truck was replace the fog light inserts with a honeycomb insert. i picked up a honeycomb grill, and think i need to do something with the bumper now. The bumper is currently chrome, but i am blacking the entire truck - minus the 06 wheels. My truck started out as a 94 2500 Laramine TD, and had a 98 quad cab transplanted 10 years ago, with a 6' box. Love the truck, just time to make some improvements.

Hello and welcome to the site!
Got any Pics???
I had the honeycomb in my bumper to match before. I cut the grill insert to fit and glued it to the cover. Held for a long time. I now have gutter guard grill inserts.

well,
i finally got the truck painted, and some of the mods done. i like the look of the mesh in the bumper - takes away from the vacant fog lights.
now just to install the MBRP 4" and K&N cold air, and the new tires wont stand a chance.
