    Just curious on what the folks do that add a superior suspension system to what was a stock TRD equipped truck.
    I think I'd like to remove my rear panel TRD4x4 stock decals - but at the same time I'm scared of the "clean/untouched" paint underneath (also a color difference). I'm MGM.
    I know I could cut/polish/buff to blend in but not sure how well it would work (I'm a 2015 yr rig).

    Or do you guys just leave them on?

    Is there any King decals that look exactly like the TRD decals? LOL

    I removed the decals and badges (always have) just 'cause I prefer a cleaner look. But, that's just my opinion. The only sticker on my truck is a Bastrd sticker.

    Yep, I think I like the clean look! Nice truck! I've already debadged the rest of the truck so I might as well do the TRD emblems.
    Did you heat them up with a hairdryer/heat gun and peel them off?

    Did it on a sunny day. Turned the truck 180* and did the other side, but I'm weird like that.

    Maybe "cleaner" isn't the correct adjective for my truck.IMG_20181116_164326706_HDR.jpg

    Wouldn't you like to know
    Should come off pretty easy with heat gun and then remove left over adhesive with googone. Polish and buff the area with your choice of sealant.

    Platinum's don't have an option for a TRD package. So, profit?

    At the end of the day, it all boils down to what you like.. @GiantsFanDan has that look of a rugged ass truck with all the decals and its clean and it flows. Chrome accents and what not. It just fits. Mine was all color matched.. I like a smoother appearance. So I debadged. It's all in what style your looking for and what you want the finished product to be:)
