    I have a 2007 Regular Cab that came stock with the plain black Front Bumper Cover. I am in the process of replacing all of the plain black plastic stuff with Color Matched Black Sand Pearl, I have already replaced the front grill with a BSP Grill that I had a Satoshi done on and I have replaced the door handle covers.

    The question that I have is which one do I order, I realize that I will have to get it painted but when I go in to order it there is one with the SR5 option and one without. What I am wondering is which one comes painted with the color of the truck the SR5 or the non SR5? I think I know but I want to make sure so that I dont waste my money.

    Thanks for that info, I was pretty sure that it was but I just wanted to check and make sure before I spent the money.

    I am in the process of doing the same (color-matching) to my white reg cab. Where did you end up ordering your bumper and grill from? How much did it run you? Thanks

    :D
    I thought on the TRD packages and SR5 packages the front bumper cover is always color matched (from the factory). :confused:

    I am pretty sure they do. That is what the Sr5 package is for the 5-lugs. Chrome grill, rear bumper, and color matches front bumper.

    It's funny how everyone wants something different that what they have. I'm as guilty as anyone. Im just saying, I've seen silver tacomas and white tacomas with the black fenders from the factory. The owners put a small lift on, beefier tires, and black rims, and I think they look flippin' sweet like that.

    I work at a bodyshop and every new toyota oem bumper comes black textures from 05 to 11 no matter if it goes on a Trd sport of a base model 4banger

    From Toyotas Website:

    "SR5 Extra Value Package: Power Outside Mirrors (Access Cab models only), Remote Keyless Entry System, Cruise Control, Variable-Speed Wipers, Chrome Grille Surround & Rear Bumper, Color-Keyed Front Bumper & Overfenders, Fog Lamps (V6 models only), Sliding Rear Window with Privacy Glass, Bucket Seats with Driver Lumbar Support, SR5 Fabric Trim, Metallic-Tone Instrument Panel Trim, Leather-Wrapped Steering Wheel with Audio Controls & Leather-Wrapped Shifter (A/T models only), Dual Sunvisors with Mirrors & Extenders, Tailgate-handle integrated backup camera [1] linked with an auto-dimming mirror with monitor [1], SR5 Badge"

    I am aware that they do not offer the SR5 package for Reg cabs anymore. I am pretty sure I have seen a Reg cab SR5 on the freeway with chrome and color-matched bumpers).. but I digest. They do offer them for the 5-lug Access cab. And since everything for 5 lugs is pretty much interchangeable.. I figured you can order one (painted) and pop it on.

    I found a replacement bumper at TRDparts4u that runs about $187.00 the problem that I am having now is that I live in Germany and they dont like to ship to an APO address. My intent is to color match the whole front of my truck to BSP, I already have a color matched grill that I had Satoshi'd along with the door handles. So I will get the new bumper cover and have it painted BSP. I found that an X-Runner rear bumper is color matched to so as soon as I get the front I will do the back.

    I wish! I am not sure how they come, I am pretty sure that they are the black smooth plastic that you can have painted. I am sure that this is the case since when I have ordered other color matched stuff it always asks what color you want. With this item it doesnt do that. I have found a auto painter here in Germany that is going to paint it for me for 125 Euro which is a little less then $200. I figured it out that after shipping and everything it is going to run me less then $500 which is not that bad.

    You know that you can also install cruise control and interval wipers for around $225.00. It takes about 45 minutes to do both and it is really awesome to have. There is a sticky on how to do it in the "How to section". It is just about one of the best things that I have done to my truck.

    Yeah.. but you want to make sure that your truck is pre-wired for it. I found out that mine was not. I wasted all that time and money. I tried to wire it myself but I gave up and didnt want to f up my truck.

    That sucks! Mine was pre-wired so I gues I am lucky in that department.
