I tried searching around for a thread about this, but couldn't find one.
I've got a 2021 502a in Leadfoot Gray that came with tow mirrors that have chrome caps on them.
The chrome caps on the mirrors are literally the ONLY chrome parts on the entire truck and I think it looks goofy.
Rather than going through the expense and hassle of trying to paint the caps, I'm thinking that putting vinyl wrap over them might be an easy fix to get rid of the chrome.
Has anyone found a vinyl wrap that is a close color match to Leadfoot Gray?
Thanks in advance to anyone who can point me in the right direction on this.

Your going to have to get paint matched vyinl, then go through the hassle of installing it.
Just bite the bullet and get painted ones!

I'm not sure that's entirely true.
I've seen some videos where people have said that they found a standard vinyl wrap color that's a very close match to Leadfoot.
Problem is that I can't find those videos now.
Plus, it seems like installing a couple small pieces of vinyl would be just as much "hassle" as it would be to remove the caps and installing new painted caps would be...

Was in the same spot as you with my truck but rather than color match I swapped out the chrome caps for black ones. Easy fix, relatively cheap and it looks good (to me anyways).

Can you send me some pictures of what it looks like?
Are the new caps gloss black or more like the black plastic that the rest of the mirror is made from?
Got a link to the caps you bought?

It's the same black as the rest of the mirror. I don't have a link to the part but it is the OEM piece.
