    Just got this Monday.
    It's a 2017 with 93,000 miles on it. I've already ordered parts for it. I've also already taken the running boards off of it. I didn't like how they looked. DSC_0001.jpg DSC_0002.jpg DSC_0011.jpg

    Welcome. Unless you're 4'11", or have small kids or vertically challenged family members, they don't serve much purpose other than keeping road slush and stuff off the sides of the vehicle.

    Blacked out badges, window deflectors, smoked 3rd brake light. I have a Borla muffler on order as well as some color matched engine cover stickers. I'll be painting the stock wheels soon as well. Falken tires in the fall as well.
    Welcome and congratulations. I agree with removing the running boards. I hope you have a healthy modification budget lol! Making it your own is a lot of fun, enjoy.

    Welcome. I wouldn’t throw those out just yet if your wife travels with you. I considered removing mine until she got in and out on ice. She was so thankful they were there or that was her way of saying politely “don’t touch my effing steps “

    New wives are easy to come by but as Eddie Murphy once said “ you only get half on the trade in”.

    I replaced the tubular style running boards for the ones yours came with, in the middle of swapping them I loved how the vehicle looked without any of them, but had elder family members visiting and needed to keep them for them to use to get in and out, now I want to take them off again but I mounted two ROAM boxed on the roof and the running boards make is so much easier to access them with the doors closed, ugh first world problems...

    I know. This isn't the first time I've been married. But it WILL be the last no matter what.

    LOL!!!
    I also own a '14.5 Camry, so if I ever have that issue arise, I'll put 'em in that.

    Welcome to the forum. Love the colour.

    after taking yours off did you find the sides get dinged up by rocks and stuff? I’m worried about this.
