Front looks great, but the chrome looks out of place in the back. stick with the painted one.

I like the chrome better then the red. It just makes the back end look meaner, imo. It flows well with the badges and exhaust tips. Stick with it

I am 50/50 too. They both look good, but since you have the chrome front one I would go with the chrome rear one too. I also agree to get a chrome tailgate handle if you keep the chrome bumper.

Refuse to put a Mazda part on my truck








































No I'm looking for one on eBay. I found a replacement chrome one for 40 bucks. I know I can find a Mazda one cheaper

I would make the plastic piece on top of the bumper red, but if you use it as a step for climbing into your bed, I don't forsee the paint lasting long.

I say leave it red and send the chrome one to me for cheap! Haha.

Actually, we have the same truck, mines just older. I want to do the chrome upper front and chrome rear and your truck definitely made the decision easier! Chrome front and rear gets my vote.

I would do that if my red one wasn't in such bad shape. The paint is chipping off terribly.

I say leave the chrome, even though it contradicts my other post. I love the look and it's exactly what I plan to do on my truck when funds roll around.
