Swapping Edge Painted Bumpers for XLT Bumpers

I miss my old Chrome XLT bumpers and I was wondering how hard it is to swap them out. I presume they are the same style, one's painted, one's chrome.

Wow, thanks for the offer. Um, I just want the chrome part. The problem is whoever had my truck before I purchased it used messed up the rear bumper, the the one currently on the truck is a replacement, and needs touchup work. I wouldn't want to trade with someone and have him getting the short end of the deal...that's not right.
