    Glad you guys like it. I actually just got the truck back today from having it done. Its actually vinyled I looked into having it painted and it was hard to find someone who would paint flat black because its a very difficult color to spray consistently and the one reputable painter who said he'd do it needed it for 2-3 weeks and was going to cost around 6k. I had a local shop down here in Orlando do it. The truck has no vinyl lines because the vinyl they use comes in 5 foot wide rolls and the trucks widest spot is the roof and hood which is only 41 inches.

    It was a little over 2k with tax...Yeah flat colors arent for everyone. I had never seen a flat black tacoma other than an x runner so I just wanted something nobody had done before. I like off the wall stuff just my preference.
