    Katskin leather interior, Satoshi grille, Bilstein 5100's @ 1.75, rear leaf TSB, magnaflow exhaust, 18x9 BBS RW's, 275/65/18 Nitto TG's, black headlights, black taillights, Hella Supertones, weathertechs, EFX tri-fold tonneau, n-Fab steps
    Good luck to you.

    I ended up buying a color-matched grill from TRDparts4u and a black rear bumper from toyota parts barn. Cost about $400 shipped for both. I can get you the part numbers if you like.

    If you want it bad enough and your heart is pure, miracles do happen. It took quite a bit of patience, but was able to find color-matched stuff to replace my chrome. It wasn't a straight-up trade... had to buy the color-matched then sell the chrome, but still.

    Bump, and good luck wishes to you.

    I know this may be a long shot, but i am keeping my fingers crossed. I may resort to buying painted stuff and selling my chrome.....

    Has anyone ever painted their chrome grille and/or bumper? Can you paint over the chrome?

    There are some threads about painting those parts. If you search you'll find some good write-ups. I don't think you're going to find a way to paint the bumper and have it look anything but shitty. You'd be better off selling yours and spending money on a new (or TW-member-owned) one. The grill can be painted fairly easily.

    Still need to trade bumpers though!

    I just purchased a white grille for $175 shipped brand new... there's a thread in the classifieds section about it.

    I'll try to sell my chrome grille once the white one shows up. Here's hoping!

    I wonder if you can Rhino-line a chrome bumper?

    I saw a thread for a painted grille, but it said they where not shipping anymore, so i bought paint and painted it myself. It came out ok, but i need to re-do.
    The bumper can no doubt be Rhino-lined...no sure how great it would turn out, and i would like one that is color matched like the TRD sport ones...
