Skid plate, bumper trim, tow hooks now painted black (rhino lined skid and hooks, paint and rubber coated bumper trim)could not stand the silver. 100% Better IMHO

In the stable... GR86 10th Anniversary Ed, 4Runner TSE, Cayenne GTS, Cayman S, 235i, Lotus Elise
Looks great! Nice job! I got lucky with the Oxford White as the skid blends in pretty well... 👍🏽

The silver is growing on me a little bit, but I very well could be doing this on my Shadow Black soon (was thinking it might come this way after seeing the black skid plate on the early test vehicles). Nice job - looks good.

Nice work! Blacking everything out looks tough. 💪

That is at least 100x better! I have no idea why Ford went with the silver in the first place.

This is exactly my plan for mine, too. I agree with you. 100% improvement! nice job. (y)
Thank you. Not Sure why they do NOT sell the tow hooks in any other color besides BLUE, RED, or ORANGE that I can FInd. Black should also be available to purchase. Not sure how these will hold up painted if I use them for recovery lol

I think I'm going to have this done as well. Has anyone had all of the silver parts Rhino Lined? I'm going to see if someone locally does the rubber coating as @PARATUS did above. I would like to see it in person because it's hard to tell the difference between the rubber coating and the Rhino Lining above.

Rhino Lining is so much Better in My opinion. I just didn't want to wait for my Rhino Shop to get it done :) I will do that in the spring for sure

Did you take the truck to a rhino shop to get this done or did you pull the parts off and have the shop do them separately?

How much did it cost to powder the coat everything? Looks awesome. Just took delivery of a black 23 and want to do the same thing.
Welcome to the forum @Coleraptor ! I'm going to have mine powder coated and I was quoted $600 by a local shop.
