    I am new to Tundra but not to Toyota. I started with my Tacoma decided I wanted my FJ and as family grew and my needs expanded so did the power in my vehicle. Next is fixing her up, so since I went black I want to get extreme and take out all that chrome... Tho not complete with out that lift with wheels and tire. Can't wait to be able to afford it all. I will be starting with the accents and I am a novice please share all you advice and helpful hints! I look forward to seeing all of your triumphs and pictures!

    Welcome and congrats from Western PA. There are few of us who like the chrome look. I think Tundra looks sweet either way.

    I agree with chphilo, they look awesome either way, but mods are never ending. Look at some builds on the site and you will be overcome by everything you can do. I will say get the Devil Horns from Diaz Fabrication. I have it on mine. uploadfromtaptalk1424649000379.jpg

    Welcome!
    I used black plastic spray paint (same color Toyota uses per the bottle) to paint my badges.

    I also switched out the chrome mirror caps to the black oem ones.

    I have added steps, tow mirrors, vent visors and husky weather beaters floor liners. I would like to level it soon and put the OEM 20" wheels on it from a platinum model with a beefy tire. Have to say, I would strongly suggest the tow mirrors. They are awesome!

    I could of used the tow mirrors yesterday with my first load of hay. Tho I must say it was nice and easy loading her up. Only I was not able to afford the Berliner so she looks a bit used already. I am already noticing the floor mats collecting it all and totally miss my fj rubber mats, so those are on my list too!

    I can't wait to lift and my level plus get my new rims and tires! Wish I was rich. I'll go with 17's tho I love a lot of tire in my look!

    I'm going for the all black too. Have a little left to do.
    Plastidip is a cheap easy way to black out the badges, grill surround and bumpers. If you don't like it you can always peal it off.
    Oh and welcome!
