    these are the headlights I want
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/01-04-TACOM...2003|Model:Tacoma&vxp=mtr&hash=item4aaef31b51

    There is a strong "blacked out" cult on these forums, so our opinions my be biased :rolleyes:. My grille surround is color matched and I like it that way. I hate chrome as well, end up always having to polish it. Color matched looks good too. In the end its all up to you man. Nice truck though. :D

    Color match.
    There are a lot of black out guys here on the site. That's 100x better than chrome, but I prefer color match.
    Although after 10 years of owning my silver color matched truck I wanted something different so I added magnetic gray metallic 2-tone.

    once you go black you never go back or color match either way. just check out the color threads and see what you like the best.

    Color match. I'm not really big on the whole black out stuff, although many on tw are. You'll be very happy with your recent purchase. I bought mine October of last year. My only complaint is how small it is. I guess you could say I didn't totally think things through and kinda just went for it. Regular cabs do look awesome though. Congrats :thumbsup:
