For those of you that have painted yours black, curious what color and texture has been the best paint match to the bumper? Not interested in linex or bedliners.

I removed the skid plate, washed and painted with truck bed liner paint.
RAPTOR UP4879 1K Bedliner , Black Hoping this will hold up well to trails.
Turned out well, attached are photos of the project.

I believe he used the Bronco w/modular bumper 2 black plastic trim piece as @BigP describes in this thread below. Resulting in perfect color match, however sounds like a few additional black plastic plugs are needed for a finished look.

I painted mine with this rattle can paint… easy find from Amazon:


Was recommended from many others on B6G forum. I am very happy with the matte finish and color.

Another option, is to order the 2024 OEM Bronco Raptor Blackout package bumper plastic trim and bash plate. I don't have the part numbers yet but your dealers parts guy should. You may need a VIN of a 2024 Bronco Raptor with blackout package.

I inquired to Flip about this, not showing in the system yet.

I painted the silver plastic trim with the RustOleum rattle can and have left the skid plate silver so far. I think the color match and texture is an exact match. Ignore some of the white specs/bug guts on both the bumper and the plastic trim. Had it painted for about 6 months and 8,000 highway miles. It seems to have held up well against bug/road debris.

Before painting, I washed it well with soap/water, and put on 3 coats from the rattle can.

In my opinion, spray paint it first, and if you hate it, then invest in the OEM black plastic parts from a regular Bronco or the Raptor blackout package.

Welcome to BroncoRaptor.com! 🍻 Thank you for posting this photo, just 2 pieces of plastic make a big visual difference. :cool:
Thanks… a world of difference… I ordered color match rattle can for the tow points. I’ll do the skid plate in black once that comes in.

That looks so much like my Build, I had to do a double take.
