Another forum for people in the service. Seems like a good site. My brother is on there. I need to tell him about this site though!

Not a very good one because I was to busy to get ones of it driving by and whatnot. I will try to get those later.

Won't the cost of the paint make it the same price as the chrome would have been?

Probably more. If a whole truck cost $7,000, what would be the fraction for just a bumper?

I'm going to paint it with rattle can and be done with it. If it chips or gets scratched, I will just repaint it. I'm not to proud to rattle can a bumper.

You could spend a bit more and get color matched paint from a body shop supply place and a few will even put into a rattle can for you to spray. Last I checked you could get the paint, hardner and the 3cans filled for about $100 +/- and you'd have left over on hand to keep.

I'll have to check into that. Thanks.


I'm honestly not worried about the overall cost, after paint, running me more than the chrome bumper as long as it is not excessive. I was wanting a painted bumper when I bought the truck. So, the fact that I'm going to get the damaged fixed, get what I want, and have it cost less than what it was going to cost me a year ago is all on the plus side. When I checked on getting a painted bumper about a year ago, I couldn't find a decent bumper for anywhere close to the cost of a chrome one, let alone less expensive. The junkyard near where I lived in Maryland wanted $250 for a painted bumper that had a dent in it and that I was still going to have to paint. I got the one I just ordered for $100.

No. I learned on another forum that every single paint job Costs $5,000 or more.

That old useless pothead prolly croaked already, so his crusade to raise the paint job minimum rate to $5,000 will never happen.

I got some quotes today for painting the bumper, the best of which was $111. That's a good enough price for me...I don't mind paying that to have it done right.

What almost floored me was that they said to paint the bumper and fix the two dents in the back would cost $1000.


Shit, for another $6000 I could have a custom paint job.

I will when I can, DP.

Thanks, Oni.





I dropped off the new bumper at the body shop this morning to get painted.
