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.

Therefore, many of my factory chrome parts are still chrome, cause I didn't invest all the time and money to remove and spray them

I also got home a lot quicker that way too

I like my chrome-looking Toyota decals on my black paint. It gives a good contrast. I'm not a fan of (enter your color of choice here)-ing out the whole truck. On the other hand, I'd rather have black wheels vs chrome just because they are easier to keep clean.

Chrome is totally disgusting. I think someone should swap out their rear chrome bumper for a painted one and I'm here to help.

I will take a perfect condition 2005+ and give you some cash. Help me keep my 2010 OR ugly and you can improve the looks of yours.

I like the few chrome accents that come on the SR5 and TRD Off Road. The Limited Edition has way too much chrome though. I definitely wouldn't add any more.

I can't stand chrome, that's just me so I got some rustoleum black bed liner and some sand paper and did my grill and badges. The chrome rear bumper will be getting replaced as soon as I get the time to put on my new ATO high clearance bumper.

I only like chrome on a dark-colored truck. For lighter trucks I like black.
The sucky thing about chrome wheels is they show brake dust very easily, which I absolutely hate

Not a fan of chrome myself. I've learned to tolerate it on he Tundra. Do miss everything being color matched when I had my Taco. Some of the full size trucks have decent looking chrome wheels I don't mind as far as stock wheels go. Other than that though, I'm more than happy not having any chrome.

X2. I saw a new limited edition Tacoma a couple days ago and it was fugly as sin. Even worse in real life than in photos. It looked like an illegal immigrant bought it and cleaned out a whole Pep Boys worth of stick-on chromed plastic doodads.

I hate chrome

I actually prefer my pre-runner over other models simply because it comes with the black front/rear bumper and fender flares. Painted my wheels first, then painted my emblems. I have since debadged all of my emblems. Love the look way more. Even painted my license plate covers.

That has nothing to do with it being a pre-runner. That's because it's a base model. Pre-runner SR5 and TRD models don't come that way.

I stumbled onto this guy web searching roof racks and I must say, he is the ultimate "chrominator", down to chrome eyelids. Check out his build:

I dipped everything on my truck that is chrome. Now that it's winter time I have black steely rims. No chrome for the winter, just the OEM rims in the summer.
