Hi David,
What kinda of features were you looking for? I prefer Iron Cross, Ranch Hand, Road Armor, And Fab Four.

If you give me more information I can help you out further!

My truck is black and my rear factory bumpers are currently in a bad state. I want to dress it up a bit. I'm thinking of getting front and rear chrome bumpers (been checking online). Nothing too fancy with grills. I wanna ask, since i'm not good with chrome parts, does it require a bit more maintenance? How do i keep it looking new?

Thanks for replying by the way.

A chrome bumper is very high maintenance and can and will rust. They're very thin and easily dented, and once that happens they're basically junk.
At our shop we deal a lot with bumpers. Everyone usually goes with black powder coat bumper. They can even be painted to match your truck. They're heavy duty and if it does rust you can always sand it down and repaint it, to keep it looking brand new.
I hope this helps.

Chrome looks good but I wouldn't want rust issues on my bumper soon. Wanna be practical abt it too. Will definitely check in with powder coat bumpers. Thanks for replying by the way.
