    Anyone else have this problem with the corners not matching the rest of the window rubber trim? Makes the truck look really cheap.:confused:

    I've noticed it too... easy fix. Just pick up some of the rubber trim safe "Black Magic" and aply it over it. I have seen the stuff at Auto Zone, Advanced Auto Parts, Checkers and even a Wal Mart. I think Meguiars makes omething like this, and a few oher bands. No biggie, like $10.

    Yeah the truck is only three weeks old, hope this is not a sign of things to come. I always been a Ford owner but just had to try a Tacoma.

    Looks like shite.., I wouldn't be happy either.

    I've never noticed that on my '05, I guess it has kind of faded to match.
