    Are there emblems factory?

    Thy are not black, look more like color matched to MGM.

    I’m trying to find a “4x4” emblem to match, but can only find black.

    Any suggestions.

    Not factory so they'll probably chip or peel. Been waiting for a factory 3rd gen option. Getting impatient, I'll probably just pull them off altogether. The chrome stick out like a sore thumb.

    They look identical to my plasti-dipped badges on my MGM truck. It's just black plasti-dip which dries a dullish-matte black. Mine have been dipped for a year and ran through many car washes without any peeling whatsoever.

    Regarding a 4x4 badge, I have the OEM Tundra one I got from eBay. Part # 75473-0C050: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Toyota-Tun...4X4-Tailgate-Emblem-75473-0C050-/221979405609

    Can see the badges in the photos.

    Thanks guys.
    I already bought a black 4x4 emblem. I’ll try plasti dip. If that’s what my other ones are done with, it’s holding up very well.

    I too think that looks like matte black plasti-dip. It kind of looks like they didn't put enough coats on and some of the original chrome is coming through.

    It’s hard to get a good pic, but all three current emblems look great, that’s why I thought they were factory.

    Any advice on plasti dipping?

    -Where to buy
    -Prep work on new black emblem
    -Number of coats to use

    Thanks !

    - Lowes, Home Depot, Amazon, etc
    - Clean/dry
    - At least 3

    There's lots of in depth youtube videos on plasti-dipping. Just search for plasti dip badge on youtube and you'll be all set.

    They're just cheap overlays. $3 worth of plastic they ask $399 for. You can buy it yourself for $100. But I would worry about it's longevity.
