    Hey guys, I'm new to TacomaWorld (about 20 mins ago) but I've been a huge fan since buying my 2011 DC OR 4x4 back in October. This website and its members have provided a wealth of information since buying my truck, even though I was only reading and not participating.

    So I've done a few minor mods but my question here is: Has anyone painted their factory front skid plate? Not the dealer installed silver ones but the actual black painted steel one? I would like to paint it the color of my truck, Silver, but I would like to see some pictures of what it looks like on someones truck that has already done this mod. I'm a huge fan of the search feature, but have had no luck in locating a thread on this. Can you guys help me out?
