    I have a 07 TRD Tacoma 4x4 access cab, 3" lift, black wheels with chrome, 33" tires, I want to change out my stock grill, I am just not sure if I want black or chrome, and not sure whats out there. I am leaning towards chrome, anyone with pics of white truck with grills, black or chrome. Thanks in advance.[​IMG]

    Go black.....I have a thing for black and white Tacomas.......they just look too good. Like a white Tacoma with the rugged trail package.

    hey man like the wheels........... i got a blue offroad trd taco. i put the color matched grille on it and went to the wonderful world of ebay for my grille insert. i found what they call a LUND GRILLE SCREEN. its a 3 piece insert that just simply lays over ur existing grille. surrounds the emblem. im in love with it. it was like 60 buck too..... but that grillecraft ever1 is talkin bout is some REAL hot stuff just a little too expensive for me....... take a look at my profile pics i gotta couple on there of the front end. i did also paint my emblem black tooo. nice truck tho man. real sharp....

    Nice trucks outdoorhiker3 and taco@you! OH3 - I vote for black on your white taco.

    Do have a sliding from window in your topper and if so does it match up to the slider in your truck?
