Default ok so what color should i paint the bumpers?

my truck is white. my gut is telling me to go with white. but picturing black in my head doesn't look too bad either. chrome? give me some thoughts.

thing is also that only a portion of each bumper would be painted because painting the plastic part would just look tacky and cheap.

I imagine you're asking about the rear bumper?
