Re: laredo bumper color?

Was your bumper color matched? If so it would be the color code located on your build tag on the drivers door. Base Laredo bumpers were just non painted dark gray plastic.

Re: laredo bumper color?

Sounds like you got your answer. All non painted bumpers were either dark gray or brown and the color will vary based on manufacturer and material used to mold the bumper but should be pretty close to O.E. color. Chances are that a new bumper won't match your current front bumper & side cladding anyway especially if yours is sun/weather damaged after 11 years.

Re: laredo bumper color?

My 97 zj had a faded repalacement bumper that didn't match the rest of the tupperware. I found a web site with the fix. http://www.urethanesupply.com had a product called Bumper & Cladding Coat. I bought a spray can and coated the bumper. The color is color matched to the year of the car. There are many different grays used!! The result was perfect. The texture color and sheen were great. I would guess that they have a match for your car.
