Default painted my bumper cover, and replaced my old bumper.

ok, so while on vacation i picked up my powerdome hood and a new rear bumper as most of you know. my rear bumper had a dent, but it was in reasonably good shape. for 100 bucks i am not complaining. here are the results


painted the cover with krylon fusion


removed the old bumper and cleaned up the forks.


the final result (truck is on jack stands because i have a broken overload spring, and i am waiting to go to a spring shop tomorrow.)

spring shop went well, except they didnt have overload springs for my ranger. nor could they order them so i ended up going to a you-pull-it junk yard only to wait 1 hr for a guy with a forklift to jack up the rear end of the truck i was pulling the spring from. but it gave my 3 good coats of pb blaster time to soak in! removal of bolts was easy as ever.

also got around to putting my add a leaf in. (lifted the rear 2" i was suprised)

haha yea i got so excited that the truck was done i didn't put the centers on lol.

oh and the cover is easiest to take off with the bumper off lol, but anyways i had just used wide grip pliers to completely compress the clips; then popped them through. but thanks for the compliments

nope, just used krylon i probably should have cleared it but i don't mind waxing it up with cleaner wax every once in a while

----------

depending on how well the krylon holds up i might do my valence soon.

guys 2 weeks and it still looks like the day that i had sprayed it. its been exposed to the sun 24/7.

going to do valence soon. hopefully it fairs through the winter with the road salts. i will throw a coat of wax over it.
