    I like below the Badge and not blacked out. I agree it just doesn't feel right, but if you like the look go for it

    Remove the "iFORCE" badge and put the flag in it's place.

    I personally would NOT black them out.. no one would be able to tell what the black rectangles mean. Second, a suggestion if I may, how about putting them up as is near the rear door ABOVE the SR5/Limited badge? I know that I would not put the US flag at the lower level anywhere near the iForce badge. (it would get dirty .. a lot, and I wouldn't want anyone looking down upon the flag if I can help it)

    And in case you are hard set on putting the flags on the door, above the iForce badge or even higher up would look great.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Keep the chrome. It stands out more, and blacking out the flag just seems wrong somehow.

    There’s a lady on Etsy that makes pretty much anything I ask for. I can find a link to her shop if anyone wants it. I haven’t found anything she can’t do yet.

    It looks fantastic. I personally feel that Ron posts pics of his Radiant Red truck every now and then just to remind me I can’t have that color.

    Thanks, Steve. She had just gotten a good detail job and wax; was begging for a photo. Fast forward to today and she's a little dirty and needing another bath but we have been having torrential rain lately with more on the way.

    Thanks, Jason! You are right, I don't see all that many Radiant Red Tundras around. It tends to be a "polarizing" color - folks either really like it or they don't. Not a lot of in-between... As for me, I like it and would like it even more if my Razorback teams (cardinal red) did better in their sports programs. Seemed like a natural (Arkansas = The Natural State) for me.

    I was actually born in Arkansas. Moved to Texas when I was four. Used to be a big Razorback fan when I followed college sports.

    I still miss watching Todd Day and Lee Mayberry run guys ragged on the basketball court.

    Yeppers, in round ball, we were in our prime under Nolan Richardson. An opposing team had to really be in shape to hold up to all the full court pressure and all the running up and down the court. Where 'bouts in Arkansas were you born? I was born in Malvern and grew up in Hot Springs.

    They hit a wall that year with the Final Four in Denver. I remember the thin air being an issue with their playing style.

    Not sure the exact town I was born in. We lived in Helena. My mother’s entire family is from there.

    Oh my OCD :goingcrazy:, center it under the iForce badge if you are going to keep it.

    I'd like her info War Machine.

    I always like to see the flag atop, or in front of any other badging. I know it's just an iforce badge, but if I'm placing my colors near another badge of some type, it's getting best presentation.

    In regards to orientation: Like others have said the left to right orientation always has the union leading the way...always going forward. If you're hanging the flag vertically, then the union is always in the upper, left.

    Without reading every post to see if it’s already been said: as a veteran we were taught the US flag should always be flown ABOVE all state flags, military branch flags, etc. Because of this honor and respect, I wouldn’t put it below any Tundra badges. We fly them proudly at the top!

    Good point, however, I feel that the US flag should be flown above any other flags. Since the 5.7 badge is not a flag, I see nothing wrong with applying it below the badge. If the US flag shouldn't be flown below any other symbols, there are a lot of billboards and signs that need to be lowered near and around flag poles. Another reason I placed mine below the 5.7 badge is because the space below the badge is a nice rounded, but flat surface to apply the decal. The space above the badge has a ridge or high spot in the metal.
