    I’d like to get rid of mine for one that’s painted to match. What have you guys done if anything?

    I like chrome, I'm from another era though. The stock ones were great. Aftermarket, shit.

    I like the chrome. I’m not a fan of all trim painted to match.
    Actually like the utility SR with black trim a bit more

    I agree with you on the black trim. If I had black flares I’d be all for the black caps.

    Just sand and raptor line them if they bother you that much. You can get it in rattle cans now.

    I agree, but I feel like the front bumper should be chrome too if that’s the case. Just used to growing up around older trucks I guess

    I love my chrome, in a sea of blacked out tacomas, I stand out with my chrome trim.

    I didn’t realize how easily the caps came off until this thread haha. IM definitely looking into just painting them myself.
