    I just wanted to say that this web site is absolutely amazing when i first bought my Tacoma I had NO idea you can do so many mods to it.... I got this idea from searching the website and found great deals in a Grillcraft grill and a new Color matched grill just by searching around the forum. So big thanks to all of you who share such vaulable info :) Anyway let me know what you guys think..

    I love it. I think it'll look even better without the bug deflector though

    I just installed my color matched grill (09 silver) and it appears lighter than the rest of the truck. I understand that plastic may appear a little off compared to metal. My question to thoses that have exchanged for sport grill found that the color is lighter or different??? I had a few people look at it and they said the same color is lighter on grill.:eek:

    They checked the paint code and is correct per them but the grill is lighter silver, overcast sky here and from close and far looks lighter. If ya dont mind could you check yours and let me know.


    Thanks

    I just went outside and checked and it looks pretty close to the rest of the truck.... Maybe they can exchange it for a different one?

    Yours being an 07 and the paint may have lightened up due to elements make it appear to look closser???? Just a guess, I know silver is hard to match. I got the grill from the dealer that color matched per color code.
    Just got off the phone w/ them and they are ordering another and will see. fingers crossed that it is closer/ or right on w/ no charge???
    Later, and your truck looks good and the grill looks great, I am planning on an expanded metal insert grill as soon as I get a correct color matched outer grill..

    Nice grill, looks 10 times better than your stock pic. I have the same grill sitting in my gameroom, I can not wait to put it on. Soon....
