I think it's been about a year since I painted it. At this point, it's held up surprisingly well. I believe I'm back to one rock chip in it, but I remember it happening, and by the sound of it, it was a pretty good sized rock that got me! Hasn't faded that I can tell either.

I had a bunch of chips on my grill, so I just used the DupliColor (rattle can) bed liner to paint my grill, after sanding the rock chips smooth, and lightly sanding the rest of the grill as well.
I also painted the headlight bezels with the same stuff.

Double check these. If you look at the upper description it says aluminum, if you look at the lower description it says plastic. I called them on this some time ago and after them pulling a set off of the shelf they confirmed that they were plastic. FWIW. Scooby

RIPBiker13 I found the aluminum black inserts for $74.99 and the headlight bezels for $29.99 but no deal to get them both.
07-30-2007 10:22 PM
RIPBiker13 I happen to have that mag. I'm gonna look real quick!
07-30-2007 10:11 PM

Walkeraviator I am partial to Olympic, Warn, and Garvin. They are all sweet.
07-30-2007 09:36 PM
RIPBiker13 Thanks a ton guys! I like them but that IS pricey...

That bumper is pretty sweet too. I think I like it better than the HighRock4x4 bumper. What do you think?
