    Pretty strait forward, trd off roads come chrome, trd sport come matching to the paint. Both look good, just personal preference. My trucks black. Without inspecting the parts id say there in mint shape. Possibly some very small nicks Ive never notices from typical use. 9000km on the truck. Your parts would need to be the same mint/near mint conidition.

    I live in Surrey, British Columbia. Regarding how we take the parts off, I havent looked yet but I imagine the bumpers are a couple bolts. Grilles might be a little more involved but I bet theres a DIY here somewhere. I can get some specific pictures of the front and back if you want but heres some I had already.

    Chrome don't get you home
    Save time and hassle and just spray the rear bumper with plasti cote spray paint, right on top of your chrome, peel it off later if your bored. I have had mine sprayed for 4 months, I surf daily and take my dog to dog beach daily, no issues with it at all.

    Spray the front grill with fusion paint, they have flat,semi,gloss in black, sand the chrome plastic pieces and clean with alcohol or equiv and follow can directions do the chrome logo too.

    Unicorns are very rare.

    If your looking for exact color match to your paint, take the parts off and have somebody spray them for you, the chrome rear bumper would need to be media blasted prior to paint or powder coat.

    Off road was definitely the way to go. I think toyota just screwed up, the chrome should have went on the sport model lol
