    Does anyone have a contact for someone that can professionally rebadge a new Tundra in the Minneapolis / St Paul area?

    What do you mean by rebadging? I debadged my old truck myself and it came out pretty good. Also, tool off one of the badges on my 2019 crewmax. I am in the cities as well, could walk you through it.

    I'd like to replace the chrome badges with blacked out badges.. I'm not looking for it to come out pretty good, its brand new and would prefer it to be perfect so would want to hire it out.. I'm handy, but don't want to chance messing it up.

    I had my local dealership do mine. Took them a few tries to get it right though plus they put a small ding above the iforce emblem. They ended up fixing the dent and I made sure the emblems were done right.

    it's really really really simple. Throw some painters tape on the truck for lining up, mark the tape with a pencil to ensure measurements are right on, peel and apply.

    Not sure since your truck is brand new but I just debadged my 2016 truck yesterday. You can still faintly see where the existing badges were. It'll buff right out but it would be easy for me to apply new black badges and get it perfect.

    It is pretty simple. Tape the area around the badge, apply some heat to the badge with a heat gun or a hair dryer, use some fishing line to cut under the badge and pee it off. Clean up the area with some goo gone. Clean up the rest of the sticky tape from the back of the badge. I scratched up the badges pretty good with some 600 grip sandpaper and then sprayed with two coats of some duplicolor matte bed liner type spray. Applied some 3m trim tape to the back, trimmed it so it doesnt stick out and reapplied to the truck. Came out real nice.

    There are several good YouTube videos available that show how to do it. Watch a few and you'll be ok.

    Very simple, did mine myself the day I brought it home from the dealer. You would never be able to tell the black badges weren't the original ones.

    MNORRIs, thank you so much, that looks perfect, except I need the limited badge versus SR5, but I'll find that. Anyone try these? any opinions?
