Nissan SuperCharged Badging - Stupid?

Looking for your opinion!

I'm going to do the Satoshi mod soon and the TRD S/C is supposed to be delivered tomorrow

I'm thinking of getting the SuperCharged emblems off a prior gen Nissan Frontier. The emblem would go in the lower corner of the Satoshi grill iwth a TRD logo. For the decal I would cut '4x4' off the sticker and put the SuperCharged decal under the TRD Sport decal on my bedside.

One thing I worry about is whether or not the text is generic or instantly recognizable as Nissan. I'm a bad judge because I obsessed over the supercharged Frontier when it came out so I know it when I see it.

Do not want.

Sleeper is always better. If someone asks what's under the hood, tell 'em they're just going to have to find out the hard way. The warble from the engine bay should tell them all they need to know anyway.

The only decal I would add is a TRD badge on the grille.

My opinion: Don't do it, and don't use the ones that come with the S/C either. They're pretty tacky.

This is my view, and this happens. People come to the truck and only see a lift but hear the whine and i say i have a throttle body spacer and then show them a 4x4 launch thats out of this world (on a closed course) and Im gone

Im completely debadged

I've kicked around the idea of having SockMonkey make a TRD sticker for the back with Supercharged incorporated, but now I'm thinking about de-badging all together. Try it out and see if you like it, just make it so you can change it later if your tastes change.

Sounds like you all are definitely fans of the subtle

After looking around, I think I'm going to scrap the Frontier badging idea. I'm going to figure out what to do w/ the grille and go from there
