Most chrome bumpers are just plated chrome on steel. I'm almost positive you could just buy any bumper of your liking and get it chrome plated at a place. However I don't know the names of any places.

Nothing stops you from having an ARB bumper chrome plated if you want it done. There are also some places doing chrome paint that looks very similar, but for a bumper which is designed to be bumped you may be better off getting it actually plated, I'm not sure.

I don't think anyone sells bumpers other than tube-style that are chromed... www.roadarmor.com has a badass bumper selection and they'll paint them body colour if you want. I'm sure they could have it chrome-painted / plated for a price of course. The bumper starts at $959 in black though

Ask around local to you for somewhere that can chrome plate something as wide as your Jeep.

Powder coaters are offering a "chrome looking" coating here but haven,t seen it yet.This is probably cheaper than real chrome so if it,s chrome you want then check it out.

I have not seen a chrome bumper that isn't tube. Do what the others said (not the ones who knock on people for their taste) and see if yo ucan find a place locally that will chrome plate any bumper you want for you.

I powdercoated the airhat, connecting pipe and aftercooler in my Dodge Ram a color called "Almost Chrome"...

too bad it wasn't "almost chrome" looking...just basically a silver/grey color...

you can get a set of rims chrome-dipped for $500-$750, so a single bumper shouldn't be too bad if you can find a place that does it...

And that helps answer the question, how?

No one was asking for opinions, just how/if they can be bought.

I would imagine that you can get just about anything chrome plated. Just sandblast to bare metal and find someone to plate it. Of Course it will cost a friggin mint.

Have you checked out the diamond plate bumper covers? Pretty Bling and d-plate is more rugged than chrome. mypartscar.com has them for front and back bumpers. not my style but whatever floats yer boat dude.
