Melissa, a big hi and hello and a warm Carolina Welcome. I know you'll be enjoying all the best RAM ForumZ! There are many areas to get the answers to your many questions. Do you have experience painting chrome? It is tricky since you have to do a large amount of work to prep it to keep the paint from blowing off or blistering and peeling. You might want to check on a reputable paint shop to do it all for you.

Welcome to the forum!

I agree...if you have chrome you want to paint your best bet is to do it at a shop. I believe the mirror covers don't come off separately...you get to pull the whole mirror assy at the door, tape off what you don't want to paint and have at it.

The plastic piece at the bumper should be accessible from behind. It either slips into slots or it has small screws holding it from behind. Just crawl/slide under the front end with a flashlight and look up.

I have not looked at the new style grilles. There may be some info in the 2011 Ram forum here or in the Exterior mods section. Most are bolted onto a frame from the inside with 6 - 12 small bolts. So lift your hood and look up at the back of the grille.

Good luck!

Welcome to this RamforumZ from San Diego, California

may i suggest that you use a curved trim tool to remove the plastic rivets that hold the dust cover that covers the area between the top of the grill & the radiator, they break fairly easily, i had to replace a few of mine, bought them at a auto parts store. I believe there are 8 of them in all, 2 sizes

Good luck with your MODS & take before & after pix
