I would recommend staying away from partsgeek.com. If the part comes wrong or damaged, they don't refund your shipping charges and you have to pay out of your pocket to ship the items back. So you pay $85 for the bumper and probably close to $100 for shipping and if it is the wrong item or damaged, they will only refund you the $85. I ordered a grille assembly, front bumper, and front air dam from them because of their cheap prices and two parts were damaged and the third one was wrong. So it wouldn't be worth sending them back because they will probably come damaged again due to the shipping company they use. They use a really cheap/lousy shipping company. Delivery guy took the items out of their original box and as a result damaged them on his truck and acknowledged in writing that the parts were damaged. When I contacted the shipping company with estimates for repairs, they said there is no proof that the parts were damaged in their care. Be very cautious with that company.

To Bad it is not a GMC, I just replaced the one on mine, it had some minor scratches, but would be good to paint or powdercoat. Oh and if you do the work yourself, be prepared to spend the better part of a day replacing it. I have never seen so many bolts, and plastic fasteners, also find someone who can help, cause if the Chevy is like my GMC, some of the bumper bolts, want to spin when you are losening them. Alos try LKQ, they have salvage yards all over the place, and can also get new aftermarket pieces.

i painted mine with plastidip as a base coat then the next day i painted it with a spray gun and small compressor to match the truck. its not hard but very time consuming and make sure the air temp and humidity is ok to do it. any paint and body shop could do it too.

I had the same issue, a creased chrome bumper an wanted a black bumper. I ordered mine from gm parts direct:

And now sadly have a small crease in my new bumper. The front bumpers on these truck are not very tough...very thin compared to previous years.
