    Greatful for this thread. Mods for these 2014-2017 (4U3) Tundras are so hard to come by. Im in the middle of chrome delete. Most expensive of any color by far. All of your Trucks ROCK !! ..... Here are a few pics of the process.

    Does the limited come with the back window and sunroof?
    Keep thinking I might add some of the 1794 dash and door trim.

    I love the grille. The whole truck looks great. Did you paint the logo yourself? And what type of grille is that?
    I just got a (new to me) 2014 1794 and the first thing I want to do is get the chrome parts color matched. Let the mods begin lol

    Here's my newly acquired 2014 1794 edition. I wasn't in the market for a new truck, but I've been eyeing tundras for a while. I was always a fan of the MGM color. I lucked into this one and after seeing it in person and stumbling upon this thread I've fallen in love with the color. I plan to color match the chrome and black out the gray pieces. I love what @Book has done with theirs (subtle changes to a stock truck and give it a little bit of a custom look.) I really like the look of the 1794 trim with this paint color too20210513_171912.jpg 20210513_171858.jpg 20210513_171950.jpg

    I know this is an old post, but do you know what size tires those are and what amount/type of lift? I'll be spending some money soon and I have the same exact truck. TIA!

    New to the club. Considering updating my truck and color matching all of the chrome to factory paint. Has anyone had a professional paint shop color match the chrome and how does it hold up?? Or am I better off buying the rather expensive color matched pieces OEM? Here is my truck and the second picture is the look I am trying to achieve. Thanks in advance for your guidance

    don't paint over plastic chrome, find a grill surround and bulge that was factory painted and have that painted. I had a white surround and the chrome bulge painted at an autobody shop - the chrome bulge had so many rock chips in it with visible chrome specs. i replaced it after 2 years with a factory painted bronze one, no issues with it

    100% buy painted or paintable pieces. It'll be cheaper and more durable than painting chrome. I've been color matching and researching the de-chroming stuff myself.

    I like the bronze wheels on that one. Who's is it?

    I bought my front grill and bulge from sparks Toyota prepainted. It looks fantastic.

    I did however opt for black bumper caps (bumpershellz) front and rear. The rear was color matched, but the cost of color matching the front was substantially more then making both the front and rear bumpers match in black.

    Check out my signature for all the color matching, wheel changing things I have done.

    Nothing against sparks (they've got pretty good pricing, selection, and an easy to use site), but check your local dealership for the color matched. I got a platinum color matched grille/hood bulge from my local dealership for cheaper, and free shipping.

    Go to your local dealer's website, select their parts dept, and type these PN#s in. The "E0" I believe was the color code for these. (call your dealer to confirm it's for the 4U3 paint code.)

    Yeah I bought a 5 dollar bolt from Sparks and they charged me $20 dollars in shipping. I didn't know until it shipped. I will always check local first for now on.

    Been thinking about about my interior. I would like to get some of the 1794 look inside. I have SR5 OR so black and grey. Especially on the dash. Any suggestions?

    Yes. It's for sale now, when I was buying it I was under impression it's mica bronze. Now I know I was wrong cause it was too new for that color

    You'll get tired of that orange leather quickly. I got 1794 but now I'm looking to get platinum with black leather
    But 1794 has more wow effect if you looking to impress someone
