Black Line X or color match front bumper??

I am seriously considering having my front bumper/lower valance done in Line-X. I am getting alot of rock damage to the paint and one area has even got a half dollar size area where the paint has chipped away on the last trip to Los Angeles.

The delima I am having is one, will it even look good?

Two, would it look ok in just black or should I color match. Color matching adds about 300.00 to the price of a truck bed....I am guessing its not much less than that for a bumper also.

Touch up jobs to the bumper are running me about $100 a shot and I have done that twice already. Its about $350.00 to paint the valance. If I do that I would also do the clear vinyl film over it - thats a good $300 just to have that installed.

One thing you have to keep in mind with line-x, especially when you put the gloss finish on top of the color match is you cannot use pressure washing to clean it. I have strayed away from line-x since I had it on my last truck because of how hard it is to keep clean.

On the other hand, I also agree with what the other guys are saying. Putting line-x on an 4x4's front bumper is ok, but for a sport truck i dont think it fits.

Good luck
