Non-Chrome Front Bumper Source?

984 Views 10 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  TIsTAN
I need to replace the center section of my front bumper (smoke color). Problem is no one can order me one. They only come as complete bumpers and only in chrome. No luck with the dealer-not even looking through the Armada parts database.
Even junk yards "have only ever seen" chrome. I really don't want to have the added expense of getting chrome and needing to deplate it prior to painting-despite what you have read paint on chrome is temporary at best. Also don't want to run chrome as it would be the ONLY piece of chrome on the truck and it's a look I would not enjoy.
Anyone have any ideas?

not sure how much you want to spend, but you can powdercoat a chrome bumper. i finally did mine last year after 2 years of ownership. the chrome held up and did not blister. if the pro-4x is multi-piece like the chrome se/le, buying the 1-pc xe bumper might also require buying a lot of new parts.
i went to a local shop that normally gets contract work for non-automotive stuff, and they charged me the pallet rate ($350, did front bumper and mesh grill). coulda gone with a place farther away for a little less money. i've read of others as low as $100. so it depends and who you know; just check it out.
