    Perfect. Thank you. I have been trying to find the OEM in midnight black. Even the dealership said it comes plain and needs to be painted. I agree to do that over a wrap. But once I do get the "Stache" color matched, I am wrapping her in a clear protective wrap. I think the cost if worth it to protect our investment, IMO.

    I still haven't personally been able to drive it (coming off a surgery), but went for a ride with my wife. She loves it. From the passenger seat, it felt great - but haven't done any OR yet obviously. Hoping to get back behind the wheel next week and will post my impressions.

    what did you uses on your mustache to delete the chrome?

    I'm not a paint specialist, but I found a paint kit with the same code for the Midnight Black. I was tempted to buy and just primer and paint the mustache parts? Just not sure if it's that simple to prime over the chrome and paint?

    I watched a video on painting chrome parts and before primer, they instructed that you need to scuff it - see the video below:

    Looks amazing. I am happy to see that the 1290 will fit ok in the short bed. This is my 22 R. Hoping to have a Midnight black 23 Tundra soon.

    Sweet!! I flipped a coin on S or R!! Love both but end of day more slab than dirt so this time went S. Btw..I use a one person lift to get in an out of bed if taking one bike vice trailer.

    It fits but not sure I would want to wrestle the “500” pounds in an out of the high bed with a 10’-‘12 foot ramp.

    This thread is about the Truck and color, I want to know more about what Krusher22Plt did to it. Looks like it was blacked out more.

    yeah..sorry..didnt mean to sidetrack and not intent.
    I painted grille with two stage satin urethane and has held well for 29K.
    The mustache was factory code paint from oempainted parts. I actually was going to spray it myself, even ordered a little bit of the oem color but was a little concerned with needing to be spot on with a solid primer on the sanded pieces and then getting the clear coat just right. So decided to order the pieces painted from site above.

    Hit me up for more info ( Neodyne) but this is a modular ramp as well where it breaks down so fits in the short-bed with whatever tonneau or topper you have concealing and securing it. Expensive but if interested may do a 1/2 off as I am leaning towards just using a new trailer I got now for my travels.

    Nice... thank you. Did you fund it fairly easy to paint? Did you set up any type of paint area to keep dust off?

    No, I haven't done it yet. I would probably got the route of just buying painted oem parts - I priced the parts out at one point (I think it was $1200ish).

    TBH, I am not sure if I am going to de-chrome right now. I want to see some more examples of that Sequoia front end on the Tundra...that those guys - AdventureMotorsKC - are doing and the cost.

    Oh. Sequoia front end? I'll have to take a look. I really wanted a Sequoia but I didn't have it in me to pay a $10k markup. Figured I'd wait for a year. See how I like the truck life. I have a 2007 FJ and an 84 FJ60. Total SUV guy. So l, I figured to rock a Tundra for a year and asses then.

    Yes. Search 9 dealerships in a 400 mile radius and found this one sitting for 4 days 90 miles away in a neighboring state. Has exactly what I was looking for.
