Sorry. I don't get it.

You take a nice Tundra with lotsa chrome, and customize it by making it look like a base model by covering all the sweet chrome with black plastic? Is it that you hate chrome, or you hate that the other guy has chrome too and you have to be different?
Really, I'm honestly trying to get it.

Hmm. I got a thumbs down. Did they disapprove that someone might ask the question? Disapprove of chrome?

Sorry, I'm no advocating for chrome. If you hate chrome enough to cover it with plastic, that's cool for you. I'm just not sure why you wouldn't just buy the truck without the chrome to begin with. A factory black grill has to be better than a Pep Boys spray can paint job on a $40k+ truck. But again. I'm just wondering why the affinity for the chrome to begin with?

i covered the chrome on my first truck with PD. but that adversely affected the aerodynamics and caused it to roll over.
on my new truck i left the chrome grill alone.

I don't get why someone would shift an automatic transmission into neutral at stop lights. I also don't get spraying shitty looking plasti dip on an expensive vehicle. Paint it to match or leave it chrome

Hammer to fit and paint to suit.

Not sure about that, but I will shift into neutral while coming to a stop on super slick/icy roads.
The truck stops quicker with no input to the wheels.
If you're talking about sitting at a light, not sure.
I thought I heard that's actually bad for an auto trans.

Hey, if it wasn't for stupid people, every company that fixes problems and sells products to fix problems would be out of business.

It's not about the plastic, the black or the chrome, it is the propellant in the cans. That is the absolutely best high on the planet.

Not a fan of the dip.

If one doesn't like the God awful chrome on the grille and hood bulge, replace it....





I don't mind the chrome bumper ends, it matches my 5.7 iForce badge..

Same reason some guys buy Ford, Chevy, Dodge or lower / raise the truck. Just do it right stop the rattle cans and dips. My dealer has chrome and black parts laying around because someone would not buy the truck until they changed it. We all like different looks on our trucks. I don't see why Toyota would color match the rear bumper and chrome the front?

Spyder head and tail lights.
Painted front bumper to match
New led running lights painted to match
painted grill black was chrome
6" suspension with new Bilstein shocks in the rear
Bed rug, LED bed lights
Powder coated front coils and rear sway bar (Blue)
