    Hi guys, I'm going to be buying a 2001 Tacoma tomorrow that I've already went and test drove a few days ago (from a private party). I liked it a lot, but didn't notice this till I started looking at all the different pics on here and other sites to see what mods I may wanna do to it.

    There is a black bumper type thing down the sides of it, kinda like the ones on the 2000 and older ones. But i havent seen these on any other 2001+ models. any ideas?

    heres the truck:

    It doesnt look bad, im just wondering why I havent seen any other 2001+ trucks with this on it.

    Im gonna give it one more check over and drive before i hand over the cash tomorrow. pretty excited!

    Personally, I think those rubber bumpers are fugly. All you have to do is remove them though.

    Yeah some have them some don't. I see alot of 01-04 tacomas with them though. Might have been an option.

    Those side trim pieces are aftermarket or dealer accessories - they're not 'factory'.
