    Im think about doing a chrome delete.

    If you have done one please let me know how you did yours

    so far i am thinking about getting front and rear end bumper caps from https://www.ecoological.com/bumpershellz.html

    I just don't know what i should do to get the chrome out of the hood bulge and grille area.

    The same company is working on releasing a hood bulge and grille surround kit.

    I bought the front bumper caps from the dealership. They came black and I had them painted.

    I bought this grille with the surround and had it painted: https://empyreoffroad.com/products/2016-2021-toyota-tundra-faux-trd-pro-grille.

    I bought the bulge from a local dealership that was already painted.

    I also bought the mirror caps, which were previously black and it tied it all together. Here's a pic.

    That's a damn good looking truck! I so wanted that color but they didn't do it in the Platinum model for 2019 so I had to settle. Those are clearly new UT homes. I'll keep an eye out for for that truck since I drive the whole damn valley a few times a week.

    DIY $ or Bumpershellz $$ or OEM $$$

    Bumpershellz would get my vote with it being this close to being released

    Hey guys, found this thread, trying to decide which Tundra I'm going to get. The Chrome on the limited drives me nuts, but have an issue paying a few 1000 more for the TRD to get rid of that. Trying to decide which would be more worth it. Save 4k on purchase price or get the bits linked above and have painted to deal with the chrome issue.

    Just getting started
    I went platinum and blacked out everything instead of color match (except door handles, still have to do that). But if you don't need/want all the bells and whistles go for the TRD Sport. Honestly, I would've done that and that's what I was looking for, but I just a really good deal on my trade in and price on the platinum. I'm happy with the platinum, but I don't think I would've been any less happy with the sport. While I like the leather and a few other upgraded the sports still came with LED headlights and I wouldn't have had to do any exterior blacking out. You'll still have the interior though!!!
