    I had my painter quote me on them a couple months ago, and it was astronomical! I really don't think he want's to do any less that 10 sets at a time. We are expanding into another facility in a month or so and part of the thought would be that we would put in a paint booth and hire our own painter so we could have more control over quantity, especially for unique colors like Sunset Bronze and Calvary Blue. Unless you're willing to wait around to see if/when that happens, I would suggest getting the paintable versions and have them painted at a body shop near you. At least for now it looks like that would be much cheaper then having us do the painting on those colors.

    Has anyone added the TRD pro fog lights and bezels using these?

    Sorry nobody has gotten back to you yet. Looks like textured black TPO is your best bet.. Post #791 on page 27

    I had purchase the Bumper Shellz in the TPO black texture. It is very close to the center front bumper cover. Same texture and feel but the covers are a bit lighter shade of black. My TRD grill and bulge has a a darker shade of quicksand than my truck. All looks great.

    Bummer, but I like the sounds of keeping it all in-house.. How close are y'all to having a total grill surround overlay ready? Maybe I just do it all at once?

    Installed the Bumper Shellz in the TPO black texture, not a perfect match but it's much better than the chrome. The back tape is a must as the fit isn't perfect but one step closer to the full chrome delete.

    What's up guys! I've been getting a lot of questions by email and through here about the Grille Surround and Hood bulge. As many of you know that have been following this page for over year, the original plan was to release the Bumper Covers and Grille Covers at the same time. We ended up having to push off the grille covers because the bumper covers got delayed every step of the way. All of this is to say that we are still definitely planning on making them. The time frame should be about 2 months from when we get started on the molds. I don't have an exact date of when that is scheduled to get started, but I'll post on here when we do, and I'll post pictures of the progress we're making.

    Just ordered the front and rear in cement (w/o parking sensors) for my 2020 Double Cab. Looking forward to getting them. Thanks for the 10% coupon too @EC1, it paid for the shipping to Alaska.

    Now if only I could find a cement hood bulge and bottom grill cement piece that doesn't cost $400+ to ship to Alaska.

    TRD shift knob, which I installed myself! Then had the shop put in Bilstein 5100s, new XD design wrapped in Open Country R/Ts in 33.
    Definitely following this! Looking for front bumper caps with parking sensor holes, hood bulge, and grill trim ... all in MGM.

    Hey Daven. There are two types of tape. There is one that is actually used to attach the inboard side of the BumperShellz to the bumper where there aren't any physical fasteners. That is the 3M PX autograde tape. We include another type of tape that is more like a strip of matte black vinyl. That is purely for aesthetics.

    Is there any way to avoid the dimpling around the parking sensor?

    To get rid of the dimpling, sand off the springs on the white clip that attaches to the back of the parking sensor. That will get you more "give" in how tight it pulls the sensor to the bumper.

    Because this involves permanently altering a part, I'm not officially telling you to do this *wink *wink *wink. Just a suggestion. Lol
