OEM or aftermarket TRD badge/decal

So I just bought my new (used) Tacoma, and although I think she is pretty darned perfect, there are a couple thing's I would like to change.

The first thing is a de-badging, then applying new TRD decals. I was looking around at prices and the OEM ones are $100-$120+ and the aftermarket ones range from $30-$60. Is it worth getting OEM ones, or are the aftermarket just as good quality? I'm not sure what would make a Vinyl Decal that expensive apart from being made by Toyota.

Or is the OEM much better quality and I can expect it to last 10+ years over the aftermarket?

Here are a couple pics of my TRD decals now, I know they aren't too bad, but I would still like to replace them.





Thanks

$100-120 for the bed decal?

No thanks.

Mine were destroyed after 5 years or so. Finally just removed them and never put anything back on. I like the clean look.

If you want decals there is a member selling ones he makes in the marketplace.
