    I hate the black mirrors and handles, I put the putco chrome handles on, not that big of a fan about them want something that will look the same color as the truck, and also same for the mirrors. Does anyone know of any cheap ways to do this?

    What color is your truck?
    Depending on the color you may be able to find some Fusion paint that is close to the same color. If not you can get black Fusion and paint them black. I know you are trying to get away from black but I think it is the unpainted plastic that most people don't like, but painting them black gives it a more "finished" look and IMO makes them look a lot better.

    I have the chrome handles on the truck now, I just put them on about a month ago. It looks OK but I think the same color looks more natural, and it makes my truck look a little soft. I have a silver tacoma, I found the door handles on some of the previous posts but havent found anything about the mirrors.

    I haven’t looked into them. I did hear that you cannot paint the black ones. The material they're made of doesn’t allow for the paint to adhere to the plastic.. so I’ve been told the best way to do it is to find a set of painted ones at a junkyard and have someone paint them the correct color.. I'm dead sure you can find that on Ebay or something similar. If you wanted to buy them directly, try that same website and search for it.. but I don’t know if they stock them.

    Changed door handles to white
    I went to the dealer and bought the white handles for the TRD truck. They cost $88.00 (I asked for discount and he gave it to me) for the set.The change took about 3 1/2 minutes to do. Easiest change with the greatest look.
