I think the steps look great! You'll need them to get into the front half of that sweet tonneau.

Traded in my 2010 base model 4.6l 2wd two weeks ago for a 2015 DC SR5 w/trd 4x4 5.7l. Day 10 the bumper caps came off to get powder coated; looks just like color match to me. Just reinstalled them tonight and couldn't be happier (for the love of God, take pictures during disassemble if you do this.....ill leave it at that). Got rid of the dealership and TRD decals. Going to remove/sand/paint the badges if I ever get more than one day off.

Dropping it off to have the grill surround and hood bulge painted on thursday.

I can post some tomorrow after the wash. I didn't finish until after midnight or I would've taken pics. It was a local guy who has a shop behind his house. $170. That was $40 for clear coating. $20 per piece. 4 caps he did super mirror black with super durable clear coat. And I had the exhaust tip done in a flat black. Then $15 for a dent repair. He couldn't get the putty to take so he had to coat it, sand it, coat it, sand it, repeat until smooth. Previous owner must have backed into something. Golfball sized ding

Nice!! I'm debating that, or plastidip or wrapping the chrome bits myself on the 1794. Too much chrome!

I can shop around but I don't know if I'll find a deal that sweet in the shops by me.

Fortunately for you the only tundra I've ever liked dipped is the white one. It comes out really good! However I dipped mine corners black when I first bought the truck and the back one started peeling when I would get in and out of the tailgate by stepping on the plastic.

Getting them wrapped would last much much longer and look a bit better too.

A buddy has his trucked wrapped for $2500, but his friend hooked him up, he said I would be looking at around $1000 to wrap all my accents but it would last a long time and also protect it from any immediate scratches and it would look good, so it's a classic win win win if I'm willing to pay the prices.

Check out the guy with a magnetic gray tundra build that says something about camping in the title. He said he got his bumper ends wrapped for $100. I was planning on getting some quotes this week myself.

If that truly is the price in your area I'd check into just getting the bumpers done and picking up a pro grille.

I agree. At the very least I'll call around and get quotes, but everything in Miami is expensive. Must... move... ASAP!
