    Welcome to the forum Larry, from Western NC here. Please give us an intro :thumbsup:

    To answer your question, In my observation, many members are attempting to "dechrome or debadge" not switch from color matched to chrome. Great forum with lots of knowledge to be had for those seeking it.
    Post up a pic of your Tundra, we like Tundra photos.

    Welcome from CO. As this guy said ^^^, most folks go from chrome to color match. If you want to go the other way @Almaboy would love to help you out.

    @Roman

    Does a gen 2 bumper cap fit a gen 3?

    @Kingtogar Roman will have the beta we need if nobody answers before him. If I'm not mistaken you are probably right though

    Just so you know, the Chrome bumper is a two piece. The color matched I'm running is a one piece. The upper part of my bumper is black.
