    I have an SR5 which I got so I could have the power windows, lock cruise... however i really like the look of the black wheel flares rather than the color matched. Anyone know where I can get a set and how much? Or someone willing to trade? I have a White taco.

    You're the first person I have seen who wants to get rid of paint matched and go black. You might actually have a pretty easy time finding someone who will swap with you. Post a wanted add.

    Remove and Paint them yourself.
    they are plastic so all you would have to do is scuff sand them with some scotch-brite, clean with some rubbing alchol, and use a plastic spray paint. I did that to my grill, still perfect. That or could go the truck bed coating look.
    point being you could do what you want for less than what it would cost to ship parts back and forth. hell could probably do it for less than 20 bucks.

    All the plastic fades over time. I would stay away from it if I were you.
