    I did a search on this and couldn't find anything...I noticed this a little when I first took delivery on the truck..now others have noticed it so it is not just me.
    I have a Magnetic Grey TRD sport ...the color of the grill does not match the color of the rest of the truck...has anyone else noticed this on their grills? It actually looks more like the Pyrite Mica color. Just wondering if anyone elses grill color is slightly off to the color on the sheet metal and the other plastic body parts. Is this a known issue? I looked at some others on the lot recently and they seem to match up....I haven't brought it to the dealers attention yet b/c I was just going to live with it...but the more I think about it, its a $32,000 truck and if its a mistake I will try to get the grill swapped....

    The inner grille is aranthicite or something along those lines , which looks just off of the Mag grey body colour .

    The grill bars aren't supposed to match the truck's color.
