Don't mind it on grill and rear bumper but that is enough. I hate the chrome pkgs. on the bigger trucks.

Not anymore. Building custom motorcycles is what I do for a living and a lot of customers that bring their bikes in for a rebuild want all the chrome gone even to the point of not having one chrome or polished piece on the entire bike and that includes the engine and all components that go to it.

I don't hate chrome but with my color it had to go man...I looked like I was driving an old man's truck.

My truck went from retirement luxury to rugged/sporty overnight.

Only option on the sr5 i don't like. Its liveable, but color matched or black would look better imo.. Just waiting untill i can go aftermarket.

How about a matte white and black? I can't imagine keeping this thing clean but it's what the customer wanted. We finished this one last month and shipped it home to Italy.

Nice truck. Took me a while to find some one close enough and at a good price for the SofTop. Now I'm working on finding a roof rack, Ivan Stewart rims, snorkel, front and rear bumpers, and on and on and on, Jesus, it never ends, I'm a Tacomaholic, I have a problem that has control over me, I though I could stop, but I can't, I simply can't. I've even past my addiction on to a family member. Dammit, oh well, better than being addicted to heroine.

Can't say I am a chrome fan but my TRD OR came with it and just don't want to spend any $$ or energy to change it.

That's about where I'm at, too.

The grill will likely get changed out sooner or later, but the rear bumper will likely stay until I get rear-ended. Then they'll pay for an aftermarket.
