New Rear Bumper YAY or NAY?

I'm kinda tossed on the whole bumper. Thought it would look better like the front. Looks out of place.

Kind of a pain in the butt to get on there with the bent bracket.


What do you think?

I know you did, I was just asking because that piece on the bumper you have on your truck now is black, mine is grey. I do like your red one better though

Gotta like the red, it set off the dual exhaust better.

Yes little snaps underneath. Not positive you can get it off without taking the whole bumper off.

I got the chrome one up front. I looks killer up front.

Im just not so sure about the back.

Yeah I agree, red was better. Chrome front bumpers look great, but I like painted rears personally.

Now that I see the front, I would leave the chrome on the rear and paint the step pad red.

I'm sort of 50/50 on it. I like the chrome on the front bumper.

You need more chrome in the back, so the bumper flows better. maybe chrome tailgate handle?
