    Right now they are just the original shot penned aluminum. I'm thinking of doing them black, or the gunmetal grey like the middle of the grill. What about some other color? Let me know what you think......

    I'm gonna be going with a red accent color on my black Taco, it looks awesome and it's not overused like the so common Black/Yellow combo.

    I voted Red.

    I like the aluminum look myself but, if you decide to paint it make sure to use a primer first that is designed to work with aluminum. This metal can be tricky at getting paint to stick well to it

    i said red. because if i had a black truck i would do all the badges in red. just so they would kinda stand out. i don't like the black on black look for them. but hey it's you'r truck and YOU should do what YOU like! i se some people on here bash others trucks because of little thinks like bug deflectors and stuff. i mean whats the point of modding you'r truck if it is like all the others?!?! is an it so that it is unique?

    I think Silver to go along with the chrome on the Grill. Don't really get painting them red unless your truck was red.

    true. i would do the badges red so that you could see them good. if you painted them black on a black truck may look good but can't see them as well. i want to do mine black i have a silver and from a distance you can't see them as well. but thats just MHO!

    I like it as is, but if you dying to paint it, do the whole thing, not just the horns.
