    Just got a 2015 Trd off-road access cab and want to change the door and tailgate handles from the naked black plastic to chrome. Does anyone know the correct part numbers for the Toyota parts/covers? I've been looking at sites that sell Toyota OEM parts and none of them list the 2015's. I found the lock/"rear" covers for the doors in chrome for the 2014 but only the painted covers for the pull section of the door handles.

    have you tried Amazon? I have never seen a Tacoma with chrome. Personally I hate chrome and judging by comments on this forum I am in the majority.

    Seeing the third gen section forced me to get a Ford...
    toyota doesnt make chrome covers for the door/tailgate handles. you'd have to go aftermarket and they are simply 3M taped on covers, IIRC.

    It is a bitch magnet hahaha . The wife thought it was pretty and is why I was allowed to make the purchase .
    There is a pic in this link . I can get you the chrome info if you really want to go that way .

    Thanks for the input everyone. I totally agree with not going with aftermarket junk. I was under the impression (because of the pics on Toyota's website) that the 4-door Limited comes with chrome door hardware from the factory.

    so from the factory is it chrome tape also? I have seen in a few truck accessorie places where it appeared it was the entire handle itself in chrome

    oops just realized for the newer trucks they are painted from the factory. Are there options for the 1st gen's to get painted handles? How about painted mirror covers? Might just have to have a body shop do it

    Check out the Tacoma Limited.

    All limiteds (I have one) Come with Chrome clad wheels, door handles, and side mirrors.

    You can definitely order them from Toyota.

    I am working on getting ride of the mirror caps/door handles on my truck, they look tacky.

    things proportioned well to me is fine in my opinion. Definitely the side mirrors I wouldn't have but the door handles bring out the wheels or add to or add a little chrome to the side of the vehicle to match the wheels. Then again side steps would bring out the wheels and the door handles then might be a bit much but I can see how they could also be a bit much like it stands now :)

    My truck is red and has the black fenderwell splashguards. The wheels are the 16 inch alloys so only thing I'm doing first is fiberglass tonneau and chrome side assist steps. I will then see if the door handles will be too much. Also going to do a chrome exhaust tip. Overall the truck is well proportioned with all colors, the red, black, allow, and some chrome but not too much of either

    I've got chrome all over my 2013 DBL cab Tacoma- I'd be willing to trade for either black or super white. I also have chrome mirrors and chrome grill that I'd trade for super white
