    Does anyone happen to own a 2012 Baja? As you know there is a red factory badge on the tailgate, bottom passenger side. Its redish orange TRD.

    I want to buy this badge in new condition. It was only placed on the Baja, so buying it is not an option. You must have a BAJA VIN # to purchase. I have read here on TW that a couple of members removed theirs. If so I would gladly buy the badge, name your price, reasonable of course.

    Shoot me a message if you have a 2012 Red TRD badge from this Taco.

    My badge is from a TX Pro and they are different. They are V6 and Tacoma.
    I would have purchased the Baja as I liked the factory lift and tires, but the stereo and speakers were trash, so I decided against it. Would still like to have that TRD badge though.

    Stock for now.
    from my understanding,no one really knew why that one Guy had a red TRD badge on his new Baja. My guess that it was a dealer bling added. You could always just order a TRD badge and paint it red. Or just order a red TRD badge.

    the colors must change by color of the vehicle then. there's a red baja at the dealership by my house and the TRD emblem on that one is black. i assume they figured red on red wouldnt look good.

    Correct, the Red Baja gets a black TRD Badge.
    The Black Baja gets a Redish orange TRD badge.

    I have looked on Ebay and elsewhere, badges are not the same. I know it sounds stupid, but I want the one from this truck. Hopefully at some point a debadged Baja owner will read this and PM me.


    I would pay $50.00 for the OEM Red TRD Badge from the Baja today.

    Sub.....I would like one too.

    Are the sizes the same on the one you may cut off and the official one? I actually have the chrome looking one in my garage. Any suggestions on best way to paint it?

    I got my TRD FJ TRD Special Edition Badges on mine.

    IMHO, its better than the TRD ones off the BAJA. They're heavy in weight and all metal. You get 2 of them for a little over the price of one Baja TRD one.

    This is an option for those out there.

    They're all Black in a rectangle with the TRD logo in Radiant Red. :D
