    is it the trd sport with no other chrome parts? Might look good with that being the only chrome on it but for me i would go black.

    I would go black, but then again is there any chrome on it?
    If so a little accent would look great, but you don't want to take away from "the" look.

    I like black nerf bars but don't mind the chrome. If you have black wheels then stay with the black, if you have chrome wheels go with the chrome, if you have stock wheels wither will look good.

    I have the basic Tacoma Double Cab. I guess it's not chrome but stainless steel. Thanks for the input, still looking for pictures with black trucks.

    I've got a black 08 DC with black nerf bars. I wrestled with this same decision but ultimately went with black. They blend in a bit and give the truck a more muscular stance. I think chrome would look fine but they would stand out more. I've got the shiny/polished aluminum wheels which essentially look like chrome but I still think the black looks better. If you've got the alloy wheel that aren't shiny I think the chrome steps might clash a bit. I've got pictures but not at work. I'll post them up tonight if you're still interested.
