    I have a silver taco as well. It looks MUCH better all blacked out but it is still a matter of preference.

    Yea, black grill with chrome emblem. I painted my stock grill black and left
    the chrome emblem. For me, you need a little contrast to whatever color combo you choose to make it pop!

    I'd say color match the grill (chrome main part), black out the billet and BHLM. I like leaving the Toyota emblem chrome myself though.

    I'm in same boat with considering what to do.

    Thinking BLHM for sure. Then I am thinking of color matching the chrome grill surround. Not sure if I will do an insert for the grill or not.

    The emblem? Already decided that I am going to make that OD Green. It's a bit of a fetish for me, I am a sucker for things in OD Green.
