    Get the cheapest ones, they’re about $6 on eBay

    My vote goes to post #2 eyecatchers. They’re simple to install line up perfectly and have had mine on for a month and goes thru car wash almost daily with no problems and they look great!

    I ordered those eyecatcher ones myself, lots of cheaper options on Amazon but they had good reviews. I did the same thing with the pro grill, paid a little more for what is probably the same thing as the $70 eBay grill but had better packaging so it arrived perfect.

    Same with these letters, they arrived nicely packaged on a film that “should” line up perfectly. My truck is not here yet but I have a pile of parts for it

    Is that for sure? When I google the blackout kit all I see is the badge overlays

    The kit I got off Ebay was a Toyota Kit, think it was around $135 but I bought it during one of the 20% coupons. I only wanted the overlays so I sold the tailgate letters.

    No Problem, not 100% sure, but would imagine they are all pretty similar.

    Wondering that myself. On Toyota’s website the overlays and inserts are separate. I ordered the overlay kit with the truck, it will be here this week. If it comes with tailgate letters, then I guess I have an extra set.

    You have to remember that Toyota Southeast and Toyota Gulf States offer accessories that aren't official Toyota accessories. Making matters worse is that Toyota also may offer a similar item/exact item.
    Make sure you know which one you're getting. Verify the part numbers are what you want before ordering. This caused me some confusion when looking for stuff to spend money on.
