    MaxTrac spindles, 5100s at all corners. Front set @1.75 expo springs out back. Wheels are a 20x12 moto metal -44mm offset wrapped with 305/55/20 nitto Terras. Performance is just a drop in k&n and a Flowmaster thunder series exhaust and a few stickers ha.
    I have a 13 dcsb trd sport prerunner. I really like the look of the black badge on my silver tacoma. Already have the ones on the door done. Here is the idea. Thought it would be funny or a neat idea to trim some of the prerunner off and make it say runner. Trim some of the tacoma badge to say taco. Put the two together and have taco runner.

    Or the heck with it and leave the tail gate debadged

    I'm doing blacked out badges on the doors. Just unsure of the tail gate. And yeah ill check out the Fl section.

    That's why I want to see others opinions before I do it. Takes alk of five minutes to take off and loom like nothing was there before. My tail gate now is completely de badged right now until I figure out what I'm going to do

    T runner sounds good. Its a possibility. Was waiting on paint to dry and came up with something.

    It's all personal preference, of course, but a debadged truck is much easier to clay, polish, wax and even dry.

    Just my two cents.

    Tacorunner sounds like a fast food delivery service.

    Might wax it but I'm too lazy to clay and wax it. I use a car wash with nano wax in it and dry it once done with a absorber so not too bad with emblems. Taco runner was just a idea nothing 100%. Door badges are done painted, the toyota emblem 4 times and no matter what I did it would start to fish eye one me. So I stripped it back off for now.
