    So does anyone out there have anything they have added to their grilles outside of the logo in the middle. Sort of where the red circle below shows.

    I bought a black metal TRD logo to try (below as well), but doesn't look right and I am afraid it will scratch the hell out of the grille paint even if I covered it. Just thinking about ideas. I old Trailblazer SS had an SS on the bottom corner of the grille and looked great.

    The logo is a nightmare to cut a backing. I tried once and it looked like hell. Maybe I need to try again with black padded tape.

    I added the biggest Yoda badge I could find to my Smittybilt M4 grill after a lady coming out of a convince store as I was going in called my truck "a nice looking DODGE"!

    I like the idea. IMO though there is too much going on with the tundra grills and their curves.
    That said, just make sure it removable and if YOU dont like it, no harm done.

    I was thinking the exact same TRD emblem for my truck. I think it will look great on yours.

    When I dipped the emblem and the lights covers on the bull bar red, I decided that adding another emblem will be too much for mine.

    Thanks all. I just had an idea. Maybe I will put a bead of clear silicone on the back and let it dry. It can act like a gasket and protect the finish. I think I will try that tonight!

    Love what everyone is doing to their trucks.

    I recently added that logo to my TRex billet grill, since the circular Toyota one was gone. I like it, the truck is in the shop for an oil change, or I would snap a picture. I did not use their huge washers that came with. I went for a smaller set. So far so good.

    How do those stick to the grille? I'm looking at the TRex grill also but would like to keep my white Toyota Emblem

    I got mine off Amazon. I think it was less than $9. It has two threaded studs, oval washers, and nuts. I used smaller washers cause I figured they would have been seen. The thread portion is about 2" long.
