Need bumper/Light opinions

I am deciding on whether or not to get black or the clear headlights.
It's a 2000 ford ranger xlt Black.
I have the ugly chrome bumper and grille and would like to make them black but I am clueless how to do that. If you know where I could get a black front bumper please let me know!

well sanding the **** out of the bumpers and paiting them is always an option.

Personally, I'd sand and paint the grill, and then go hit up a yard for a newer bumper (with fogs), and paint that. As for headlights, it's a personal preference. I like color-matched grill and bumper with chrome lights, but since your truck is black, the black headlights and corners could look killer.

I've color-matched my grill, and I'm still hunting for a good deal on an 01-03 bumper.




You can also check out <TX>TORKiT's truck. He's got a similar look going on, with the newer bumper, all color-matched, and chrome lights: https://www.ranger-forums.com/showth...=122448&page=2
