I'm a pretty big fan of black and white. Whatever you decide to do, it'll look good man.

Which do you like best? That is the important question...
I like it, but since I have not seen one in real life in person (base model, painted bumpers) I have doubts, my biggest concern is that the front bumper cover is very BIG, if I paint it if you look at the truck sideways the bumper will look huge, those who have fender flares do not notice this because the flares extend down to the bumper and when you look at the truck sideways the flares hide part of the bumper and makes the bumper look proportional to the rest of the truck. Who knows maybe Im over thinking it to much.

Yea, color match it. Personally I dislike the white trucks with black'd out fronts, looks... riceish or such (like an unpainted CF hood on a white rice). Also, WHLM would be sick color matched.

There is an easy solution to that... get the fender flairs I think it'd look sick imo.

I would but with the low profile tire Im running I dont think it will look good, unless i can get a hold of some X-Runner flares which are thinner and be able to modify them so they extend completely down.

I will paint it, but if will be a few weeks or 2 months before I do it, Im selling stuff I don't use anymore and a few parts from my previous truck that I still have.

Thanks for the votes and comments, it really helped me out, Tacoma World rocks!
