    New tacoma guy here making a list of upgrades. Wanting a new grille to replace my chrome factory one. I am thinking a black one will go with my magnetic gray taco. Any ideas?

    search for derekabraham he has a silver streak mica with a black grille surround. I know it's not magnetic gray, but it'll give you an idea. I think it'll look sick.
