    I'm debating on removing the black window trim decals on the exterior window pillars!

    Can you please post some pictures of your if you have removed the trim!


    My 2017 Tundra CM is White with the black trim and wanted a few opinions on removing it and whether the look is good and how easy is it to remove!

    Thanks all!

    One thing that gets left out when total de-badging a white Tundra...............good luck getting rescued up in the mountains in the winter. First responders will fly right over. "See anything?" "Nope" "Only see white everywhere". Of course I'm somewhat exaggerating on this. But then again??

    Zappa was a left leaning guy. I personally love his "music". Frank Zappa was so left, he was right.........that was what that pee pic was about. I'm so right, I'm left. Eeerrr, let me think think about that. This HAS NOTHING to do with politics by the way. Just a clever pee design in the snow. :thumbsup:

    I would not remove it. Removing the black window pillar tape I think makes it look more like an all white base fleet truck or ice cream truck FWIW..

    If it's any help, there was a pillar-removal craze that swept tundrasolutions.com several years ago. The forum consensus was that darker color trucks and even some lighter color trucks looked better without the tape. One color was singled out as looking worse with the tape off. That was white. It was a pretty big thread as I remember. But then again, taste seems to be very much changeable, so you gotta take it with a grain of salt.

    I personally like the pillar tape. It makes your truck look as if it has one giant side window.

    I say keep it black. Here's almost your exact setup (scs wheels, debadged, color matched handles)

    I also have 6112's/5160's
