I like it. Forget painting it. Flat black is awesome. May as well just prime the rest of the truck to match. =)

Correct me if I'm wrong but as far as I know, primer doesn't waterproof at all like paint does so it's gonna rust quick if you don't paint it.

100-200.

i got a quote on getting my cap painted, that was 250 so a bumper should be cheaper.

looks great man, I love how you painted your grille, Only thing I would do more is maybe get an edge hood and it would look perfect!

I have been wanting to do this also...did the valance come mounted to the bumper or did you have to get mounts for that also? The oem brackets off your truck wouldnt work for the bumper also? I just wanted to see all that I would have to get.
Thanks!
BTW....it looks great!!!!!!
