Paint them, or even better find someone selling a white set. That way you're getting a factory painted set that you know will match 100%. With all the white Tacomas around here, there must be someone putting on heavy duty bumpers looking to make back a little of what they spent.

Yeah that would be a good idea but there a few problems tough, Im not in continental US (Shipping parts would be PITA), and most Tacomas that come with painted bumper also have flares, mine dosen't so their bumper have holes for flares and mine is smooth.

The place Im going to is pretty good, they matched really great my toredo red ranger. They also painted the roof and hood of my father's volvo (metallic purple), matched great, so Im not to worried about that.

As long as it matches, I think you're good to go. Do it.

paint it just like you have it posted with that section of the front bumper black, and do the mirrors imo it would look better that way

I thought about it but I don't want it to be like there is to much white I want to keep some white-black contrast, Im afraid that because its a small truck if I do to much white then it will look overdone.

Edit: Damn now Im not sure about the mirrors

My '09' DC Sport is, by defination, "color keyed" and I like it that way. BTW it is silver.

However, the white looks good either way IMO.

Which do you like best? That is the important question...
