Default Chrome?

Greetings, I've been a lurker on this forum for a long time. I have picked up so much from you guys, thank you. I am trying to spruce up the old Toyota jeep of mine. I find lots of parts for monster trucks but I am having trouble finding good old fashioned chrome accessories that fit. I have found a few things from JC Witney. I guess it must be because the Toyota is imported that I can't find any parts for it. Thanks again for the great website and any help is appreciated.

Which one is it? A Toyota, or a Jeep?

I surmise that since you say it is old, and refer to it as a Jeep that you have a FJ40...

Not sure what sort of chrome "accessories" you are looking for but SOR & CCOT do carry some "bling" items like stainless steel windshield hinges, door hinges, vent covers, etc.

Not too much on a 40 to bling out though...

Where is SOR & CCOT? Are they local? Yes, it is a FJ40. We always called it a jeep, sorry. We use it on jeep trails so doesn't that make it a jeep? Kida like tissues are usually called kleenex.
