    I just bout a 2006 Tacoma. I love the truck and i want to start blacking it out. i saw somewhere where people were blacking out skid plates in the front. I like the idea but what would be the best thing to do? powder coat, bed liner? I also want to put a big white TRD sticker on it also, so any suggestions on what to use and an idea of price? Thanks

    Get some of the Rustoleum Bedliner spray from a auto store and hit that on your skid. Powdercoat will look better and last longer but costs A LOT more and it definitely harder to touch up man. I used the bedliner spray for a few things and it turns out great and so far I have had absolutely no problems with it!

    As far as the sticker, IDK how long that would last. A lot of guys get TRD lasercut into the skid. local fab shop should be able to help out with that...

    Welcome to TW by the way man! glad to have you here! enjoy :wave:
