Has anyone painted their chrome back bumper caps to match their truck color? If so, send pics and how you did it.

There are a few methods people use to do this. IMO, you'll get the best result if you order the black plastic ones from the SR model and paint those. But @Rob Daman has a video of how he did his without replacing them.

Paint has held up great since then with zero issues.

I bought the black plastic ones and had my local dealership paint them for me since I am a total noob when it comes to that type of stuff. Ran me about $300 all together but totally worth it imho
