    Looks damn near new! One recommend for that stuff called "Wipe New". I applied it to all the black plastics on my exterior in 2012 and it still looks like I just did it a month ago. This stuff will make your trims WAY blacker and it lasts longer than they claim.

    is this the wipe new you're referring ?

    https://www.amazon.com/Wipe-New-WN6...pID=51XKYExdCOL&preST=_SY300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch


    Yeah... I see your point.... a true Black in the plastic makes a very nice contrast .... I use this one..... ( a little less pricy )

    https://www.amazon.com/Turtle-Wax-5...turtle+wax+jet+black+endurashine+trim+coating

    Wondering if this one will work for the lights ?

    Yeah that is the one. I bought another kit in 2014 because I was so impressed by it, but I haven't had to use it yet. Very strong stuff once it cures. Don't get it on the paint though-I spilled a couple drops onto the paint when I was applying it and they're still on there.
    OP's headlights look to be in good shape. Mine are clear too because I use Klasse All-In-One on them every 6 months.

    I did mine today too. Me and 1stgentacomarc likely have two of the cleanest, proudest, all-stock best-gens around. Hey Marc are you the original owner? I am of this one and have always taken pretty damn good care of it. Just took some shots of it in Golden Gate Park.

    I really like the height of your Tacoma. What suspension / lift do you have?

    Full OME kit from @Wheeler's Off-Road Inc

    881s/Dakars paired with Nitrochargers, went with the 881 coils since I do not plan on adding any additional weight up front (for now at least). Going back to my stock wheels and a little larger tires soon to fill it in a bit.

    Very nice!! I see I'm in good company with these most excellent, well-preserved trucks:) Around here in SF, other than mine, I've only seen like three really nice 1st-gens that could stand with ours. Hell I barely see any 1st-gens in general here period.
