Metamask doesn’t support the Tron network, there’s absolutely no way to add the Tron network on Metamask. So I have heard Many times. This is 99.9% correct, but there is a way to tweak the whole thing to work for you.

That is what I will be showing you in this article- How To Add TRX To Your Metamask Wallet?

Since Metamask, the leading non-custodial crypto wallet is not supporting the Tron Network, the best alternative is to add the Binance-Peg TRX token.
