Any of you guys that own an 09/10, have you had any problems so far with the paint chipping along the bottom of the door, rocker panels and front rear fender in front of the back tire?
I had a few other Toyota pick-ups over the years and had the above problem with each of them, usually do to the road salt flying up in the winter. On my 07 Tundra, I installed a set of 5" wide step bars and noticed that they prevented this from happening on the Tundra but on that truck I actually used them to get in and out.
On my 09 Tacoma I just installed the same step bars just for the paint protection because they are not needed for me to climb into this truck so I have to step over them. I would rather not have any step bar or running board at all but I installed them just for the paint protection. I just wondered if there was a change with the 09 paint being that there were some new colors added.
