    I am thinking of debadging or black out all emblems

    I have a super white CM, I will dechrome and be getting Matt black rims! Can't decide if it would look cleaner less black on white or take emblems off!

    What do you think!

    Debadge but leave door handles black to tie it in with the wheels. Just my $.02

    CM handles and mirror and blackout badges or debadge and leave back handles and mirrors. Otherwise the black is too much and spotty.

    Alittle late to the party but I say both ... Debadge most and blackout what's left. Here's mine ...


    I took off the I-force and SR5 badges, blacked out the Tundra emblem (got me thinking ... I wonder how color matching Tundra emblems would look) and color matched my handles.

    I think it may look better without the Tundra and minus the TDR decal on bed!, IMO!

    And perhaps that's why I left the TRD 4x4 decal on mine ;)

    However, I also added a 4x4 badge to my front grill since I didn't care to have it on the tailgate.

    Most people just plasti dip them? Unless you want something more permanent. Try Toyota of cool springs.

    It's held on by 3M tape so if I get tired of it I can simply pull it off. I've been wondering if I should color match it or paint it red.

    @Roman I've purchased these badges from him for two trucks in a row. Sure, it's a little more expensive than plasti-dip, but, I thought my $50K truck was worth it
