If you are going to paint it yourself. Soak it with some kind of a penetrating agent such as BP Blaster (and I mean soak it). Prime and paint when it's fully soak. I have done this on a few car frames with great results... you can always get it line-x'ed as well. I would also incorporate some reverse lights into the bumper (not hanging underneath...)

I kind of have to agree with 06RangerXLT as it does not fit the truck very well. Maybe if you fabricated some square steel nerf bars, or had a head-ache rack with square tubing, or even a front bumper to match. Don't get me wrong, the bumper looks great just a little out of place for me.
