    I finally got around to doing the black badges. Just not sure where to put the "Tacoma" on the tailgate. It is the only badge going on the tailgate. Tell me what you think of the two locations pictured!

    they look good but idk i think i like the look of a clean tailgate more

    that one above the handle seemed cool at first but idk i just see it getting messed up and scratched. thats usually right where i lay my palm opening/closing the tailgate

    i would leave it in that bottom corner or off all together

    Not a fan of the first center one. I'd would go with the second. This reminds me that I need to repaint mine. They are starting to chip a little bit
