    Has anyone come up with a way to cover up the pinch welds in an effort to "dress up" under the rocker panels of your Tacoma? I'm not interested in running boards or rock rails/rock sliders as these add on hang below the area that I'm interested in covering. I realize that this type of add on will attach / install directly to the body and wonder if this will create problems. Looking for suggestions.

    I haven’t seen side steps or especially rock sliders that hang lower than the pinch weld

    I painted them on my '07 Gen 2.

    I might do the same on my new truck too.

    Prep them with a scratch pad and use some satin or flat paint/primer in black.

    1 hour job if you know how to mask quickly.
