    I'm thinking of adding the hybrid one off the camry with the green leaf below PreRunner since there's nothing there - base model 2.7. .....or just take them all off or black them out.

    me too. tailgate looks so clean now. i'd still like to get someone to make me up the letters to spell T O Y O T A across the tail, like the older pickups had. and maybe a thin one to go across the bottom of the tail saying "Tacoma PreRunner SR5 V6". all in black, of course.
