    Painted my front and rear and guard with black vht epoxi paint im not sure how its gonna hold up, but it should be ok for the time being until i decide to get aftermarket bumpers.

    looks cleaner i think as of a month ago . let me know your thoughts and opinions.

    Ya really! Truck looks good, i like the black on red. Now you just need to plasti coat your tacoma emblem. I painted my step bars with an undercoated armor and it started wearing off in a month. Not sure what to do now...
