    Tufskinz is another option with different colors to choose from. Taking them out and painting/vinyl is a pain for the middle two so overlay is the easiest option just in case you were contemplating that as well.

    unfortunately you can still see the chrome underneath from side angles.
    Best option is to remove and wrap or paint

    Just know you have to take your entire dash trim apart. Its not hard really, just nerve racking and time consuming.

    Nice...I think I need to follow in @SR5 AZUL and take my dash apart and paint chrome rings and control knobs. I have vent covers on now, but like others have said, certain angles you can still see the chrome.

    How was the steering wheel swap? Been contemplating looking for a leather tacoma or tundra one to replace my composite one.

    Cool! Yes on the steering wheel. Does the light still come on when you turn on your parking lights? Or you painted over it?

    I agree, the grey plastic and chrome emblem on the steering wheel look a bit dated. I like it when some of us carbon fiber wrap and paint them different colors too.
