vinyl wrap. did my lower front bumper flat black and then bedlined my upper grille and mirror caps. still have to wrap my door handles and rear bumper then shes alllll blacked out (sig pic is before any of this)
You can debadge it to get a cleaner look and lose some chrome at the same time. That's free, just takes some time to do. You can pull the burgers off front and back and paint them. You can swap out the mirror caps and the handles with someone who has black. Front bumper upper and lower, too, if you can find someone with your color truck who wants your chrome.
Otherwise, bedlining them might be an option for you.
As some people have said, selling or trading your chrome pieces is the easiest way to go. But for others like myself, the Rustoleum spray on bedliner worked perfectly. Its matte black finish gives the T a more tough look. Some have said that it will chip but what doesnt chip over time especially when road debris is constantly present. If it does, just a touch up is all thats needed. Its very easy to work with, as long as you have some skill for it. My front bumper and upper grille has been sprayed for about 6 months now and no problems whatsoever.
Its your truck and you can do what ever pleases you and frankly, most of us here on the boards will appreciate it one way or another. Good luck...
My advice is to stay away from the bedliner as well. I painted my wife's Pathfinder grille (entire grille) with bedliner, and I hated it after a couple days. I ended up buying a new grille. I even painted the chrome tailgate handle on her Pathfinder and regretted it as well.
Back when I had my factory 18's, I prepped and painted them with flat black spray paint. They held up great, even with the careless @$$ clowns at the tire shop working on them. I only had to touch them up once or twice in almost 2 years. The factory 17's that I have now, I prepped and painted them with bedliner, and I have to touch them up every time they balance/rotate my tires. They chip so bad and this is even with 1 1/2 cans of bedliner on each wheel when I initially painted them. If I could do it over, I would rather use spray paint.
I've only used the Rustoleum bedliner, so can't speak for the others...
I did my cowl, wiper arms, bull bar, pocket flares and tailgate bib with it at the beginning of the year. I put 3-4 coats on everything as well and prepped with Windex and a clean paper towel to remove any debris.
If you go look at my truck now, all the sprayed parts look exactly like the day I sprayed them and I couldn't be happier.
did my mirror caps with rusto bedliner back in august-ish. hit one so hard on a tree that the mirror folded in and the only "damage" was some bark scraped onto the mirror cap. soap and water and good as new. rusto is the way to go duplicolor is crap
