    Took the badges off the truck today. Trying to decide what color to paint them or just leave them off. My truck is the Black Sand Pearl color. I was thinking red, black or just leave them off. Suggestions or thoughts please. Thanks

    What is your color plan for your truck?

    Black it out? If you do that I would either paint them black or leave them off. If other stuff is going to be red I would paint them red.

    Screw it. Going all black. Might as well, considering I just had my bull bar and steps painted black.

    I showed my wife the MOD thread that included the idea of color matching the TACO grill emblem...that night she was placing an online order for mathching paint. When she painted it she must have sprayed 4 base coats, 6-8 red coats, and at least 4 clear coats! It looks BEAUTIFUL!

    This week we are having the stock sport rims powder coated semi-black and she has decided (it's her daily driver) to remove the side emblem. She already removed all other decals and such.

    so we are going naked.

    Cheers,
    Thom

    debadging is awesome. I wish one of my badges wouldn't have taken a little bit of my paint off with it when I took it off. I think they put mine on while the truck was still wet...

    I then had to black mine out and reinstall them. love it.
