    Does anyone have chrome door handles on their 2nd gen? Been thinking about getting some, but not sure if they look good or not. Opinions needed!

    I have them. Not by my choice but they were on there when I bought the truck used last year. I plan on sanding and painting them to match the color of the truck. Im not a big fan of the chrome on a silver truck. Thats just me though.

    I'm not either. I found it's more for the Dodge, Ford trucks that have all the chrome.

    my neighbor has a red tacoma dbl cab and he went crazy with chrome. He's got chrome door handles, chrome vent visors, chrome tailgate handle and to me it looks like sh**

    I haven't even been able to find any for the 2012 (the websites say they won't fit...), but I have seen them on a few trucks and they look nice if you are matching your truck up... (like, it looks dumb if it is the only chrome on the truck, or you have a bunch of off road mods but then have chrome door handles...)

    That stick on crap looks so tacky and cheap. Might as well throw some stick on side vents to match. I see beanered out dodges and Chevys with this crap on it and it so cheesy. To each their own but I wouldnt pay $5 bucks for those door handle covers.

    I personally think some chrome on darker colored vehicles if don't correctly makes it have the finishing touches. But that's just me

    Chrome wheels that come factory on a truck is much different that a $30 eBay add on. Plus, those wheels are the ONLY thing chrome on my truck besides the emblems. :cool:
