    Looking to add step bars and a grill guard to my new silver Tacoma... I know it's personal preference, but what would look better against the silver? Do you guys know of any examples I could look at?

    Pic of it as it sits is attached.

    Thanks

    That looks pretty damn slick, Bob! Thanks for posting a pic against the silver body.

    Since your truck is a light color, I think black will look better. For a dark color, chrome looks good.

    If you haven't made up your mind, I also have a new silver DC and had the factory chrome bars on for a few days, decided i didn't like and ordered black ones. I don't have any pics with the black ones yet but can get some if you want to see the difference. i think my gallery has some pics of the silver truck w/chrome tubes. I like the 3" round black ones better.

    I decided to go with black. Thanks for all the input.
