    I just picked up a new Baja, the mudflaps went the next day and the graphics came off this weekend. Peeled off nice and easy, I was very happy. I stripped all the chrome badges off my 2009, as well as the TRD stickers, but I havent decided on this one yet. I have the black TRD plate on the tailgate and would love to find the Tacoma plates in the same finish and font.

    Jim you are just old/not with it. I can tell you this, because I have discovered that I too am old/not with it and that is why I don't understand this (or many of the other things the youngsters do these days) either.

    If you are old enough to remember the first time this was popular it was called 'shaving' the emblems instead of 'debadging'. It's fun to watch these trends come back around, and to watch as the young crowd claims the trend as if it were their idea.

    No offense meant to any of the young folks. I only know this because I can remember my dad and grandpa laughing when I told them about the 'new' look or mod I had done to my car. Now I understand what was so funny! ;)

    Some hate the TRD stickers and pull them off, others love them and stick them on their non-TRD! Whatever floats your boat.

    Mine is a TRD edition with SR5 package and I run no logos or badges and i like the look of it that way.

    If someone has no idea what type of truck I have.. they really arent into off using a truck for more than a grocery getter with the occasional dump runs.

    Mine is clearly a custom vehicle from nose to rear.

    I've been considering debadging mine for a while, but I'm scared that the paint will look faded behind the emblems and the trd decals after 6 years of sun exposure. The truck is Black Sand Pearl.

    forst becase i paid toyota for the truck, no the other way around, so i don't feel the need to go around looking like I'm sponsored by TRD/Toyota with as many emblems as they put on these things....im a amazed they dont put a huge sticks that says "it comes with a stereo!!"

    I hate chrome myself so I originally pulled everything off, decals and all. Liked the clean look but thought it looked a little boring. Went with black emblems and black sock monkey TRD decal. A mentioned, just personal preference for wanting something a little different.

    I did it because i have seen to many "am y", "olla" and the best on A red early 80's pickup that just says "yo" that is all that is left for the 4 foot "toyota" on the tailgate

    have to start with the huge TACOMA windshield banner so everyone knows what's coming down the road...
    maybe a Toyota emblem on each side of that.. should be a good start
