    I just had a horrible experience with auto safety with Amazon. I purchased a set of tailgate letters from auto safety, they send me every letter except A, So I contacted Amazon and they were willing to do an exchange. I received the second set only to find they gave me an extra R but still no A. Anyone else had this experience with auto safety on Amazon? How did you resolve it? Anyone has a matte black A for sale?20200724_070538.jpg

    Letters are hard. I’d return and get a refund. Then buy from a new seller

    Just return and buy from elsewhere if you want them.

    My OEM ones started pealing a few months after the dealer installed them, so I ended up removing them entirely.

    I know it's a Tundra, so that's all that matters to me.

    Sorry for the hassle.

    This is a bit if a tangent, but does anyone know if the tailgate lettering on a 2015 can be removed, leaving the stamped letter impressions? Or is there no "stamping" on 2015s?

    It should be stamped underneath it for a 2015.

    I bought mine from Autopro on Amazon. the only thing I should have done was trim the tape before installing the letters. Everything else was great.

    These are the ‘3d’ letters, they stick out a bit compared to just stickers and make it pop in real life. Mine are still on with no issues. A few washes with the pressure washer. 5FF94009-3803-44F8-A3AE-03DD604E4BB0.jpg

    What solid color letterings would look good on a black Tundra? Would like to see a red one on black if anyone has it?

    Were the "tape letters" bigger than the letters themselves? I'm not seeing why you should have trimmed the tape before install. Or did you trim the tape afterward?

    The take on the back of the letters wasn't trimmed as well as I would have liked. Whatever they used to cut they tape left little bits in places. Not horrible but it didn't look sanitary. So I cut them before I did the last few letters and trimmed the rest on the truck. And thanks, I'm glad you don't see it.

    I went with the reflective red. I think it turned out pretty dam cool.

    I have the SX with all the badging removed. Actually wish they would have left it, but in black (Tundra, SR5, and 5.7i side badges). Now thinking about doing this, but not sure which color. My truck is white. The red/white/blue, red, and black all look pretty cool.
