    I have always de-badged all my truck but I don't know if I should this one. Thinking of just taking the tundra off the doors and 4x4 off the back and leaving the 5.7. Thoughts?IMG_1468.jpg

    Personally I love the badges, especially in the black. To me they pop off the lighter color trucks and give it a nice contrast.

    I vote leave them. On that truck blacked out, they look great.

    +1 on black out badges. That makes them pop on your color truck. Debadged trucks always look incomplete to me.

    I like the black 5.7 badge but I personally don't care for the Tundra badge. I removed all mine (Limited trim) except for the 5.7 badge and I'm probably gonna order them in black. Or......if you remove your 5.7, you could sell me yours.

    Personally, I don't like driving a billboard. But, your pro with black badges is a bit different..... I'd probably shave the "Toyota" and leave the "5.7." But, you gotta do what makes you happy. Love that color btw.

    I love the black Pro badges...so much so, I ordered them and put them on my truck. They complement all the other black on the truck. Like @Law323, I think it looks incomplete without badges

    Pretty good right? That said, I am having custom billet badges made to put back on. They will be same dimensions/pattern of the oe Platinum badge, but add subtle bling.

    I'd keep the blacked out badges, if they were chrome I'd take them off.

    I think they look great with your truck's color. If they were chrome I'd saw take em off but it really gives your truck some nice accents, IMO.

    I agree with this one because of the truck color and the badges being black.

    I vote to keep them too!

    Love the color of your truck and with only two colors on your truck to begin with it helps make the trucks color that much more appreciated.

    Although it would be a bit repetitive with the bed stamping, I've been curious as to what the Tacoma TRD PRO badges would look like in place of the 5.7 badge.
    Maybe you should try it out. ;)
