    Sorry to beat a dead horse, but I searched and searched for the 08 Sema concept v8 Tacoma TOYOTA Emblem.

    Everything from my reading is saying that the 40 series FJ emblem is what I want. I looked at the 40 Series emblems and they do not look a bit close to the concept. I found a write up on a satoshi grill and they guy said he used a 40 series emblem. Does anyone know where I can get this Emblem? thanks for the help.[​IMG]

    Try http://coolfj40.stores.yahoo.net/emtoyfjfj19t.html

    If you're interested I have an emblem I'm trying to get rid of for $40, I have a post over in the For Sale section.

    Not sure what model it's off of but it's a Land Cruiser emblem. It's also primer gray since it arrived with a ruined finish. I can't use it since I'm looking for a stock looking option but if you're trying to color match it should work for you.

    Yeah, its pretty close. The white taco looks as if the letters are separted though. If I don't find one, I guess I will have to go with that one then. Thanks for your help. BTW what your carrer field? I'm an Ammo troop.

    Yea, they might have seperated all the letters by hand and cut them out... there might be another but the font/styling appears to be the same. It was a custom SEMA truck after all, they tend to like to do little nit-picky stuff like that lol.

    As for career, I'm an engineering tech in semi-conductors.

    Yeah, looked at it. That emblem goes to a FJ60 series. Not quite what I want but I found it. The FJ62 has no black pieces that extend from the T and A. Thanks though

    Sorry to end it but that SEMA is straight Custom. You can't buy it or find it.

    You're going to have to get that LARGE one and cut it up and fab it on. WYATT did it and it looks amazing. No other emblem will come close to filling in the grille except that one.

    Good luck. I painted mine red and also left it as is. One day i'll cut it up. Good luck!@

    If you want one that is similar to the SEMA truck you are going to have to take that pic into your local CNC machine shop and see how much it will cost you for them to make the letters for you. You will then have to mount each individual letter on the grill.

    Does anyone know of the font and deminsions of the letters? There are several companies on the net that can make plastic ones or aluminum. I really love the look of the Sema one. Thanks
