    Ok, i have searched, and found many sites listed on here of where i can order a BSP grille online, but i want to know if anyone has actually ordered one? I am reluctant to actually place my order because all the sites say is color - "Black", and i don't want it to come in just black plastic, or the non sr5 grey black, or even just painted black. So i am wondering if anyone has ordered a "Black" one, and had it come to them BSP. Thanks guys.

    Yeah i have seen this site, but i am wondering if i ordered from them if it would come BSP? I see you put a color matched grille surround on your OR, and i assume you picked blue, is it the correct color? BSP has some kind of greenish flake in it is why i am worried, i don't want a plain black one if it isn't going to match is my main concern. Thanks

    My truck is Indigo, it matched perfectly, same metal flake and color changing qualities depending on the light. I'd just call them, speak with Jeff the internet manager, he's a cool guy and will go check one out for you. I would assume the black they list will be the correct paint, unless Toyota also made a plain black model? I just saw busatodd's truck yesterday, hadn't checked out that black up close, cool color and definitely has some metallic greenish flake in the black.

    If you order it from TRDparts4u.com:
    http://www.trdparts4u.com/oem_parts.html

    Get the sr5 black grill NOT the "Unpainted" grill.

    That will match your black Tacoma.

    I ordered the Indigo grill for my truck from them and it was a perfect match.

    Haha, i totally spaced, had a busy day at work and totally didn't think about it, but i will tomorrow, cuz i want that grille already.

    I don't want to paint it, i live in the desert and there is tons of debris everywhere, i don't want to have to pull it off and repaint it often when the chrome starts to show underneath. But yeah, i am sure most people could get away with it.
