I was thinking of doing this mod but I have no clue what kind of sand paper I need to purchase to remove the chrome part first or can I just paint over it with what kind of paint.

You just need to make it coarse enough to scuff the chrome, not take it off completely. I think I started with 180 grit and finished it with 220. After you sand, just use a good primer and then whatever color coat you wish to make it. I used Krylon for my paint and finished it off with clear to help protect against the bugs.

I have the same color TB, and I think you did a great job! It has a very clean look to it. the bull bar is nice and clean. Im from Oregon and all of our state trooper rigs are that blue. and If I saw this TB on the highway then I would def. slow down. great mods!

If I were ever to get a push bar.. it would either be that one or just the simple bull bar that mounts down low... Something to put some lights on...

I do like this style push bar tho...

Ordered mine.

I just ordered mine today. Mine will be seeing actual use in the field. I've already got 4 led bars on the truck, and will be adding at least two more to the push bumper. Thanks again for helping me with all of my questions. I know some people have gone with mock push bumpers.. but we are LEGIT.
