    Was wondering if anybody knew a site, or place where they sell the trd emblem with different color stripes instead of the usual red. Or if anybody on here does it and sells them or can put up a DIY instructions. I have been searching for ever and can't find anything.

    ya, the one with just the TRD and the two stripes, but was wondering if anyone sold them in different colors instead of that red stripe. Or if anyone had a write on how to, and they actually look good.

    I think the red stripe is just part of TRD's logo trademark (like McDonald's yellow and red). Any different color would be custom by the owner.

    I did see some on ebay (not in that link I provided) where the seller made it look like black chrome and it was a gray and white stripe I believe.

    But reading the comments in the seller rating it was apparently a cheap paint job.

    Yeah, that's what I was trying to say.

    The one I saw had a charcoal gray stripe instead of the red

    My question is why? It is like the retards I see that put buick portholes on every car other than a buick. My girls dad has just about every stick on emblem from the auto zone that he can buy. If it were me, I would clean every emblem off.

    Only thing worse is the idiots that put a Honda emblem on a Toyota!:jerkoff:

    The guy owns a TRD Tacoma and is asking for a TRD badge. Just a little varied than the ones you normally find.

    Relax, Brosef.

    There is no need to be disrespectful to others here. The OP is simply looking for people who can help him out.

    I was not trying to be disrespectful, sorry I came across that way. I was referring to the people I see around here with every accessory they can find stuck on their cars.
