    3rd Gen Wheels Dipped Grill Surround
    Hey guys, new member and first time posting here. I bought a 2015 TRD Off Road last month and I am loving it! 33,000, miles one owner. I couldn't pass up the $ price.

    I live in Steamboat Springs CO but bought this from a dealership in Milwaukee WI. Drove it back to CO March 1st to give her the good life!

    Here's a couple pics, my camera cracked in between then and now. I need to get better pictures. But here she is!

    I bought the Alba climate knobs, center console organizer, and interior LED lights from Amazon. Those LED's are must have.

    I just picked up some 3rd gen take offs from a guy in Denver and put them on. Changes the look of the truck entirely.

    I dipped my front emblem and grill surround, and plan on doing my Taco emblems when the weather gets nicer. Eventually I want to drop the rear bumper and proper prime & paint it flat black to match the front.

    What do yall think?

    Nice job on the dip.. personally i think the stock rims look better with the red.but the take offs are a great find. Good luck with your new truck

    Welcome to TW. You should dip the front valence to match the grill.

    I was thinking the same today while looking at the front end. When I do it I will use primer / paint instead of Dip next time

    I have a question about the marketplace, I saw a rule that you needed to have 50 posts in order to buy / sell / trade, Is this enforced? I have a set of 3rd gen TPMS from those wheels that I was looking to sell or trade for a 2nd gen set

    I travel for work and they pay a mileage rate per mile so I’m hoping to put over 500K on it. At 40,000 miles I had a major service done on it. Everything looked good.
