    I debadged mine after having it about 8 months. I love it! I used a hair drying and fishing line. I wish i used gloves, my fingers hurt for about 2 days afterwards. Getting the emblems off the tailgate is a breeze since they dont use much adhesive on them. The Tacoma emblems on the side are a different storry, they use ALOT of adhesive for those so it took a while and then youhave to heat up the leftover adhesive (which there is ALOT of) and pick it off a little at a time. after that i used goof off to clean the remaining stickiness on the tail and sides. if your truck is new thats probably all you will need to do. if your paint is a year old or more you may have to buff to even things out a little bit, but that depends on your color and can change from truck to truck. I took everything off except the TRD decals ( i love them too much to get rid of them) but my truck looks alot cleaner and less "busy". i highly recomend it

    I have a 2008 Tacoma TRD Sport. I would like to de-badge it but am not sure if it is too late since it is three years old. Worried about color changes, scratching etc.

    I was wondering if any of you had a first gen. If so how did you get the sr5 off near the rear window? It looks like it would be a pain in the a.

    I'm going to de-badge soon, you can have mines. I can't promise a date yet as I work 2 jobs and am lazy as hell right now, but when I do, they are yours!

    I debadged also. Although I think the emblem looks decent on the truck, I just prefer the no-badge appearance.

    I debadged the whole truck. Planned to paint some of them black, but never did. I thought the tailgate was cluttered looking with the 4 badges, but I did not mind the sides badges even though I took them off as well. I just liked the clean look. You can always put them back on...:D
