    Just curious what my fellow Timberland Mica owners have done as far as painting the headlihts. I'm debating between painting them green like the body or paintin them a tan like the grill. Thinking black would just add another color into the mix and make it not look good. What did you guys do? Pics? Thanks.

    Do you have a front pic of your truck? Black would go with your color scheme if you have the black bumper/fenders/grille.

    I'll get a pic of the front up when I get home. The black bumper and fender flares are the cheap plastic black, not the painted black. Saw the one on the blue as well, looks awesome.

    Was wondering about this myself. I am leaning toward darkened headlights for my Timberland Mica... THE best color, as someone already mentioned :)

    I left mine stock as well. They are already smoked lenses on my 2010 and I like how it looks. But if I were to paint them I think color matched would looks sweet on say a color matched sport. But if u have black fenders then maybe black would be the way too go.

    It was dark by the time I got home so I'll snap some photos before work tomorrow and post them tomorrow night. The truck looks clean the way it is but I'm trying to make some minor changes to make it look a little better.

    Love the Timberland Mica. I was hell bent on getting a black or silver Tacoma. I didn't even know this color existed. I walked into a dealer one night at 8 PM and it was sitting in the showroom. An hour later I was driving it home. I've always had black before this so it was a change but I'm happy. So many people still mistake it for black though.

    Here's a pic of the front end. I'm actually torn between the colors cause none of them will make it flow smoothly. Thoughts?

    Nothing wrong with a Timberland Mica/Black combo. I think with Black headlights and a black mesh grille, your truck will be rockin'.

    Assuming dupli-color has a paint for TM, I think you should color match it bro. I went back and forth on blue vs black for a while, but in the end, I think I made the right call w/ a color match. Looks a little more factory imo.

    I've been toying around with this idea. Think it would look awesome. Also, I have some cash coming for Christmas from a few people that had no idea what to get me.
