    I have a 2022 super white tacoma, has black tailgate letter that is already starting to come off I am assuming because of the intense dry heat where I live. Just some of the parts of the tailgate lettering are popping up a little 3 months into ownership. Told the dealer and they said its not covered under warranty which I assumed already but had to ask. Does anyone know of any strong double sided tape I can buy that will hold and not damage the paint? I want it mostly permanent but if it comes off itself again I dont want the paint damaged, has to be able to be bought at lowes, HD, walmart etc as ordering online currently is an issue for me. thanks.

    3M makes good double sided tape specifically for automotive use. I believe they have different grades of stickiness . Regular vs Super strength etc.. Will it damage paint when removed ? It shouldn’t, Ive never had that happen. But I don’t know of any guarantees.

    3M tape.

    Go to your local NAPA, they usually supply body shops and should be able to fix you right up.
