I own a tint/vinyl shop, if you're contemplating wrapping them then just get the vinyl yourself and trim it. The precut ones will have to be much larger than needed anyways for stretching purposes. Vinyl can be tricky, especially on curved surfaces. $300 is a good price IMO.

I've been thinking about using some of the left over wrap from my race bike on my white CM.

Soon as the weather warms up, I just might.

I wrapped my grill emblem in a sheet of black vinyl. It was the first time I ever wrapped anything. It took about 50cents worth of vinyl and 15-20 minutes with a heat gun. You could definitely do your front bumpers yourself. You can get 12"x24" sheets of glossy black vinyl online for about $1.80 a sheet(plus shipping), and I think the bumper ends would be pretty simple to do considering they're pretty much flat and square. Give it a try. If you don't like it you're only out $5.

I should look around and see if I can find any that's a similar color to my silver. I doubt it. That's one benefit of having a black or white truck.
