    I received my new Hood Bulge for my 2015 Tundra today ( starting to dechrome the beast) ,after unpacking the part and setting it where it fastens to the hood i noticed the paint didn't match the rest of the truck which is only 4 months old. Along with not matching the paint had blemishes and discoloration throughout. Quality was guaranteed on the sales ad sold on AMAZON but Quality was not what was delivered. I've contacted the seller requesting a RA# and a refund. Save time and aggravation spend a little more money and get OEM.

    Moved to the product reviews section.
    Do you have any pictures of the hood bulge on truck for comparison?
    Do you have a link to the one you got?

    Hope everything goes well with the return.

    That's why it's best to stick to OEM for these parts. @TRDSparks is a great source.

    Agreed! A reputable Toyota dealer is your best bet. I bought from @Roman at Toyota Of Cool Springs, he was awesome to deal with!

    I've seen those aftermarket hood bulges and wondered how they compared to the OEM parts. I guess the cost saving isn't all it's cracked up to be.

    Always stick with OEM when it comes to body parts. Aftermarket just doesn't fit right.
