Don't believe it is your point of view that people are taking offence to, perhaps the way in which you drive your opinion.

Inocent enough and you stated your opinion so this is probably where you should have stopped:

You are correct, p-dip is meant to be a temp paint. Stick it on and if you like it peel it and do it right with perm paint. However, how hard is it to google trucks with white or black bumpers? When you see it you'll either like it better than chrome or not. After seeing them, If you still don't know if you like it then modifying a truck isn't for you or you need to get a pair of *****.

If I (or others) can't have an opposing opinion on some things then you better get me banned or eliminate the internet all together. I will always represent quality and doing things right the first time.

PNW relax. Completely valid point to search for pictures based on his inquiry. However, sometimes in real life, appearance needs to be tangible to obtain the correct perception. By the time you "professionally" prep the chrome bumper and shoot it with "insert choice of refinish product here" it is permanent and you are stuck with the results if you stand back and think ahh **** my truck looks terrible like this. Good thing I was flamed on and only looked at internet photos before I painted them for good.

The link that 07Cruiser has a perfect image of a sharp looking white F-150 with black accents and white painted bumpers. Awesome truck. If a person was to like that truck with the white bumpers the only way he'd be disappointed after sanding, prepping and painting is if he did a **** poor job at it.

Sorry Uncle Pete but paint is not truly permanent. It can be sanded and painted another color, powder coated, or chromed again (cheaper to buy another factory chrome bumper used on CL).

The point is commitment, what are you guys afraid of? It's just a bumper, we're not talking about getting a mail order bride or purchasing a home on the internet without seeing it. Innovative thinking and design wouldn't exist if you guys were in charge.

I get it, my approach was off by saying "plasti-crap" and that I "hate" plasti-dip. Sorry to offend the nancy's on this site with my vulgarity. Now JMdavis can go line by line and dissect my rant and then send me to the corner.

I do not have fog lights and do not plan on adding any lower grill but I do have the black grille guard which is currently off and black housing headlights. I will plasti dip them in the end of December when I have some more days off to work. The reason I am not permanently doing my bumpers is from a sellers point if I would ever try and resell my truck.

Yes I know my truck is dirty, I work in the oil field and live on a farm and very busy, hard to wash a truck at night if you have ever tried it you would know

More arguments than just giving suggestions to a fellow forum member. Now with you getting your truck dirty again I would suggest putting a glossifier on the plastidip so that its a smoother surface and doesn't hold dirt as well. But IMO oxford white F150's with the oxford white Bumpers look pretty classy so I would def suggest that. Maybe do a white plastidip 1st on the bumpers to see what your truck would look like before forking over the money to get it stripped and repainted

Alright thanks very much, but yea, my truck will stay clean about a week without rain or snow on the ground, before the dirt roads will destroy it, and last year in DRY KANSAS, we got snow up untill May 1st so I will definitely use theglossifier, for anyone who cares to see I will post pictures when I am done

On another note, I have seen guys go to their automotive wrap stores and just get their bumpers vinyl wrapped to match the truck. That's what I'm going to do.

I plasti-dipped my cross over tool box, and it was hard to keep clean. The glossifier is a must in my own opinion.
