In my opinion if you want black bumpers on a white tundra then you need black headlights and tails. Everything must be black including badges, grille/surround, wheels, and running boards. It will take me awhile but I will post pictures as I do the same to mine.
I am planning on linex on the running boards, powder coat the bumpers, dip on the badges and grille surround, fuel maverick wheels on nitto tails 20's

Looking to do my chrome bumper in white and need some info. Did any of you use a clear coat or just the white iced the front chrome bumper ?

Also if I do the front I'll have to spray the rear as well anyone have pictures of this ?

I used white dip about 3 cAns for the front and back. Used one can of glossifier and here it is 8 months later. Works well it's prolly time for the first touch up but I really like it!

Yea very easy to clean just use tire cleaner or grease lightning and it is back to bright white wax and buffer also works just be careful not to cut the dip off

I blacked mine out the day after I got my truck, I can't stand chrome... then I decided I wanted them white like the Trd Pro, keep in mind, this is only temporary until I can get the factory bumper end caps painted. So far I put the Trd grille and lights on, just need the end caps and the mirror covers...

I have used regular gloss paint over plasti dip on wheels. Worked fine and still kept the peel-able properties. Basically used plasti dip as a primer layer :)

Doesn't matter the color of your truck, if you despise chrome the way I do, go to Walmart buy a can of plasti-dip for $6, tape up and paper around your bumper well. Apply 3 coats, 30 minutes between. 4th coat, 10 minutes, yank paper and tape off quickly-attached pictures I painted my end bumpers caps before and after, looks as good as a shops. If I can do it anyone can

What paint did you use? Also, what kind of prep work did you do before spraying it on, thanks.
