    Hey guys!

    First post but I was wondering if there was another way, aside from plasti-dip to black out my grill? I don’t want the Toyota pro emblem just for everything to be black like this...upload_2018-5-29_17-4-59.jpg

    Without plasti dip you have two options

    A. Buy the Trd Pro front black valance 125-140ish. Buy black Toyota emblem overlay. For the middle painted part your best bet is buying satin black vinyl and wrapping it. Very easy to do on that piece.

    Option B (Harder)
    Buy satin black vinyl and wrap front valance (difficult) buy black Toyota emblem overlay. Vinyl wrap middle piece.

    I painted my wheels with matte black rustoleum spray paint and it holds up really well. But it’s not really a thing you can go back on if you mess up

    If your looking for the “TRD Pro” look but without lettering look at the garnish from Trail Standard Off Road. You can do it with or without the “Toyota” lettering on it. You’ll need a new upper grill insert as well but that’s not a big deal.

    Just another option if you didn’t want to spray or wrap what you have.

    I blacked out the emblem with a kit. Then the cross piece was vinyl wrapped at the same time the Hood scoop was wrapped.The wrap for the hood scoop and the cross piece was 125.00 installed and the kit to do the front emblem and all the rest of the emblems was 159.00. https://nox-lux.com/product/2010-2018-4-runner-black-out-kit/

    Ddin't have to do the front lower because the bumper took care of that.

    Love that C4 bumper Bill! Particularly with the Extreme LED bar. Questions...
    How much was the powder coat?
    Did you cut the bumper/install the C4 yourself? if not... how much was install?

    Not a C4, it is a Southern Style Offroad and it came powdercoated. I did not install it myself. My dealer is big into offroad mods and it was done at the dealership so no warranty was effected and all the work and parts were guaranteed. As far as price, I'm not sure what the install alone was. This was a package deal with the bumper, lift, winch, running boards and a couple of other trinkets for around 4,000.
