    So I recently bought a black 2017 Tundra SR5 to replace the white one I had that was totaled. I want to do some mods to this one and I want to start with replacing the front and back bumper caps and replace the grill and hood bulge. All of them are chrome and I want to make them black. Im having trouble finding replacement grill and hood bulge for a 2017. Could a 2018 honeycomb grill work? Also For the front and end caps I have seen some threads say just remove and paint and some say to just get covers. I am up to do either but I wasn’t able to do many mods on previous one so I am hesitant. I don’t want to mess up my truck doing the mods. Any advice or suggestions appreciated.
