    I'm not a fan of my bedside decals.

    Blazing blue pearl offroad short bed.
    Decals are grey and white.

    Can't decide what would look best; help me decide what to do.

    If I get custom decals it would be from "far north by design". Unless something better is out there.

    If I just take them off, are there oem decals to repurchase later on?

    Be aware, the longer you leave the decals on, the more likely you are to develop some shadowing as the paint begins to fade over time. The truck is still new enough it won't be an issue, but obviously the sooner they come off, the better.

    Yup, I understand that. Took my v6 badge off last week with no issue. Was built in June, has it since September, so all good on that front.

    All black was on my mind. Blacked out the grill, bumper, and tacoma badges. Maybe the drop shadow in dark grey?

    Custom decals for the win! I'm just waiting on some time to install mine, but they add some nice personalization to the truck.

    I notice lotsa dislike for these kinda decals, the Baja version had these kinda decals, they looked pretty gnarly. They aren't "ew", or terrible truthfully, yet I know some like absolute no decals. Plenty of Trucks have these from manufacturer. The F150 Raptor has an option for them. Various Ram trucks had/them...etc. I'd say, as long and your truck is an actual TRD level, not just a base, or SR5 trim, I'd slap them on my truck. But it's your truck! Do as you like. Just my 2 pesos.

    It isn't that hard. Use heat gun to soften glue, peel it off, use a cleaner to get rid of glue residue. Oversimplified, but not by much. Lots of how-to videos.

    I don't like the particular one shown above, but I'm with you. They don't all look bad. If I were to get one of that size I belI've i would have it painted in instead of a decal. Would look much nicer. But then again 5x more expensive, lol.

    I'm thinking of doing an all black decal on my MGM Taco.
