    In the 2001 - 2004 era, there were two packages that got you color-keyed grille or bumper(s):

    - SR5 Color-Keyed Package (color-keyed grille and both bumpers). Available only in Lunar Mist Silver, Black Sand Pearl, Radiant Red, and Impulse Red.

    - Limited Package (color-keyed front bumper and fender flares). Available only in Lunar Mist Silver, Black Sand Pearl, and Radiant Red.

    The only 2001 - 2004 model that had color-keyed grille *and* both bumpers *and* fender flares was the S-Runner.

    If you got a 4X4 or PreRunner with the TRD Off Road Package your fender flares would be color-keyed if you also had the SR5 Color-Keyed or Limited Package.

    The door handles bit is confusing, because most of the sales / spec literature is foggy about it.

    In the 2001 - 2004 era, there were two ways to get color-keyed door handles:

    - the SR5 Color-Keyed Package
    - an S-Runner

    The Limited Package had chrome handles. None of the documentation mentions the possibility of getting both the SR5 Color-Keyed Package *and* the Limited Package, so I'm not sure what you would have gotten if you could have ordered that combo.

    The spec / sales documentation states that chrome mirrors are part of the Limited Package.

    If I'm not mistaken, the Limited Package was the only way to get the chrome outside rearview mirrors.

    There was an optional Convenience Package that included power mirrors, but I believe the ones included with this package were plain black.
