Pics of your body-color matching after-market bumpers

Seems like I don't see many Jeeps with bumpers painted to match the body color, unless it's on a 'show' Jeep, like TeraFlex or LoD's Jeeps, etc.

Just curious if anyone has went through the extra expense of repainting or powder-coating their aftermarket bumpers to match the body color.

Your pictures appreciated!

I suspect most responses would be black Jeeps. I have never seen a body color bumper I dont think.

My house paint was a close enough match.

Teraflex has, I believe, 1 or 2 that have colored bumpers in their YouTube videos.

Mommycrawler nailed it. Imagine my surprise, and glee, when my bumper turned out to be...black!

6" C channel 10.5lbs per foot if I remember right. 1/8" aluminum diamond plate on top.

For under a $100 you can build something similar.

Looking at the pictures on this thread I really liked what I saw. I don't have an aftermarket bumper (yet), but I figured I'd try something. I painted the silver applique that comes with the Sahara edition on the front bumper body colour. I think it turned out pretty decently.
