    Is there really only 1 place to find the 1st gen “SR5 C-Pillar” emblems on eBay? I’m wondering why Toyota would discontinue them, when there are still so many 1st gen Tacoma’s on the road.

    It just seems random bc the “ToyotaTacoma” side door “Tacoma” tailgate, “PreRunner SR5” tailgate are still readily available... I thought I had the solution by buying a new PreRunner SR5 and cutting it in half... until I realized the SR5 side emblems are noticeably bigger...

    I read somewhere around here that somebody had made SR5 vinyl stickers that duplicate the look of the OEM badges. Unfortunately I do not remember the specifics. If this has any appeal, it might be worth doing a deep search here and possibly Ebay.

    Garth, appreciate the post. Do you have the direct link on Amazon for those chrome auto letters/numbers? I've typed it exactly like the description but cannot find an exact match like in your post.
    Much Appreciated.

    This is the OEM passengers side and you can see where the chrome has come off in some spots. That’s why I want to replace mine. Just looking for something that looks OEM.

    My guess is even if I found some at a pick a part, they won’t come off very clean...

    If you don’t like and are not going to repaint... You may want to reapply them... If you want to sell them I would be interested in buying them
