    I'm having almost the same problem man, except not. I've got the trd sport MGM and the grille is color matched except for the toyota emblem. I don't know what to do with that one measly piece of chrome!

    I have a silver taco and a custom blk grill on the way.. I gotta say, I wanted to get it painted but it looks pretty good on your truck.. I might just keep mine blk.

    I would just paint the colored area black for more contrast (like the 05's - 08's) as i think this would look better with the MGM.

    You could them post a picture. This would also make you the guinea pig for me as i have been thinking about the same thing.

    Leave the chrome Toyota emblem as is with the chome grill. Blacking them out looks terrible.

    Seriously, maybe have someone photoshop the 05'-08' grill on your MGM in the photoshop section.
