    I was thinking about putting the front emblem back on after having my new grille put on. What do you think, and if you did it how did you fix it on so it didn't fall off?

    It's not perfect center, I'll do that later if I go with it.

    You do a flat black if you want to have that BLACK look to the front.. but it looks good either way

    I did it to mine a long long time ago... held it on with a zip tie... worked well for about a year and then disappeared... I'm assuming it fell off one night I was wheeling thru the Desert trying to avoid La Migra...

    I think maybe go for a "Tacoma" emblem in the bottom right corner. Classy. Plus you already have that giant sticker on the back. $.02

    I say go for the "TOYOTA" badge off the FJ Cruiser, like on the SEMA truck.

    I thought about doing that, just wasn't sure if it would be right as mine isn't the deep dish.

    How about silver to match the truck instead of chrome? I don't think I've seen that yet. I have my own custom grill badge and I'm working on a new design as well.

    mines held on by doublesided tape...hard to tell how long it will stay, but it sure looks good for now...worst case I spend the $14 to get another one..

    I like the TRD badging myself but the Toyota emblem would look sharp as well. If you do go with TRD badge I personally like the way it looks in one of the bottom corners.

    I wanted one of those, can't find them anywhere. I was off the site for a while and came back and heard that the guy that made them isn't anymore.

    I believe Andres is working with Toyota to try and get permission to make more devil horn emblems. I contacted him to make my custom emblem, but I was too impatient to wait for him to do all the devil horns first! :D :D

    He does really good quality work, hopefully Toyota will let him continue with the devil horns as they seem very popular.
