I painted mine, just sand off the rust, mask it off and paint. I used krylon fusion satin black, which I had left over from painting the fender flares.

Definitely just paint yours or buy OEM ones. The aftermarket ones you see in quadratec and ebay are not any good....to be blunt.

I took mine out to paint it, but I already had it out as I had removed it to put in the garbage I got from Quadratec. You could potentially use use some cards and mask it off really good and leave them on. I used some duplicolor trim paint and it matched perfectly. I sanded them down really good, primed, then painted with a few thin coats. Be sure to wipe them down with a prep wipe before paint and wear rubber gloves (oil from fingers can cause paint to lift). Prep is the key to a good paint job.
