Just my personal preference. I don't know that I like the Limited chrome side mirrors, rear bumper, and door handles. Can you get the black versions installed at the Factory? Or is there an option to change them out afterwards? My truck will be black so I'm going for a blacked out look.

I wish...this is the exact deal-breaker on getting a limited. The only Chrome I want is on the bumpers...I want metal, not resin, bumpers...all thye rest of the chrome looks tacky to me.

I almost want to vomit when I see those guys who do the chrome door edging, chrome wheels, chrome fuel door, extra Chrome badging , chrome antenna, chrome windshield wipers, chrome bedliner...the list goes on

I dislike the chrome also. When did chrome become the fancy accent anyway? Did I miss something? Here in the Gulf States region, they have a Texas Edition where they dump the alloy wheels and put on big shiny chrome ones! :td:

What's next for the Limited? Spinners?

Can't the door handles, and the mirrors be replaced though? I thought I read some where that the chrome on the mirrors is just a cap. I wonder if they would be availble through parts.

side note: I heard there are 30 inch spinners now. LOL!!

Bingo. Couldn't agree more!

I had a 2000 Tundra with the chrome bumpers - Loved it! I now have a 2005 Tundra with the plastic front bumper. I HATE it. Its a real pain to remove bugs and rock chips occur easily.

Agreed... looks like the local auto parts store was cleaned out of the chrome tape isle.

YOu can probably have the dealership order and install the tow mirrors and SR5 handles. They have to be a 1 for 1 swap. I just didn't think about it when I ordered...and I don't like leather:D

I coulda got a chrome beadliner!!?? I agree with the toooo much chrome. My '06 'Runner Limited is almost perfect in that respect ... very little chrome. Now ... I think that a good body shop could scuff, prep and paint these parts. Waddaya think?

I'm waiting on a quote from Chrome Masters in PA to find out what it will cost to have all my chrome redone in Black chrome. I know it will cost an a$$ load but definitely unique and would look amazing on my black DC.

07, that goes back to something I wrote earlier. Are the limited mirrors really just black with the chrome cap? If so I'd give you mine for free. Assuming they come off easy and leave a clean finish underneath.

Yeah, it looks like $h!t, and it's my truck, my money, my opinion, my decision.

Im almost certain they are just caps. Similar to the obs GMC mirrors. If they are like them, they just stuck on with double sided tape. Be about the same as debadging. Just work them off w/ fishing line, clean it up w/ goo gone. We dont have a limited on the local lot or Id go check. I need some to color match.

I think you should get one. If anyone should get a chrome bedliner then it's got to be a Harley guy :D
