Default painting bumpers question

I just picked up a 2008 Ram ST and being from Houston Texas, I'm already eager to start customizing it. First thing i want to do is get rid of that nasty gray color in my bumpers and grille. It's that work truck looking color. The rear bumper is metal, but on the front bumper, only the lower half is metal and the upper half is plastic along with the grille. My question is, what is the best way to paint these black or if i can even get them color matched to the rest of my truck? I plan on replacing the Grille all together, but figured i would plasti dip it for the time being. if anyone has any tips or have done this themselves, I'd appreciate the help. i don't want to buy a whole new bumper, but if that's the only option.

If you have the paint code number, you could color match it, some suppliers will put it into spray cans for you
