Can blacking out badges cause issues later...?

    My truck is currently leased and I want to black out the badges. Lets say that once the lease is up or before that i decide to trade in my prerunner for a 4x4 taco. Since the badges would be black would that cause problems when i trade it in or with the lease or anything?
    Thanks

    Worse case buy chrome badges off ebay. They usually go for only a few bucks. I bought 3 new badges for my tailgate after I had it repainted.

    But I doubt your dealer would care.

    To many to list here, see my build info on my website.
    I had the dealer remove the badges on my first truck and they had no issues when i returned it, so i cant imagine they woudl care if they are blacked out.

    I debaged mine but have really thought about surprising the Gf and blacking out her Jeep WK's for her white car

    Yeah i don't see a problem unless your destroying the truck or doing serious modifications. Your going to buy it out after the lease anyhow aren't you?
