    My wife and I made our salesman pretty happy buying two new Toyotas last week

    She got the 18 TRD off road premium and bought trd pro wheels and trd pro grille

    I got the 18 tundra trd sport

    Would you mind providing more info on the valence kit? Is it a wrap? Where do you get one?

    I did not get them wrapped, I did get a quote to have them wrapped in black for $280.

    Instead I bought genuine toyota parts from toyota. Front and rear cost me $394 with clips, I ended up not needing the clips because i didn't break any. Installed the front valance without removing the bumper, you have to remove the rear bumper to instal the rear valance. Toyota makes them in two colors only, silver for the TRD off road and satin black for the trd pro. The parts dept at the toyota dealer close to me was not helpful and said he could only order them for $475 and he didn't know if they would arrive in black.... I did my research and ordered from toyota dealer online, sparksparts has everything by the way.

    For me getting them wrapped was too much of a temporary option and the ones I've see plasti dipped i think looked really bad compared..

    Let me know if you need more specifics, I did the install myself at home as the toyota dealership near me was not sure if they would charge 200-350 to install.. they sure don't act like they want m th business anyways

    Thanks, I guess it’s not just the middle part but the whole bottom half facade of the front end right? I was thinking it’s just a cover over the middle section. I was thinking of doing this but was considering vinyl wrap, I’ve see a few DIY’s that seemed fairly easy ....

    I saw a warn bumper install where they pulled the bottom half of the front end, cut out the gray section, then remounted. I suppose that would be the valance

    Thank you!!
