    Removed all but the Prerunner V6 emblem on the tailgate, which I derped... not sure about removing it or not... it's not so offensive in black.

    25# test fishing line for the badges, about 10 min ea. Decals just peeled off, no problem. Thanks for this thread!

    For RE-badging... I have some "3M plastic emblem and trim adhesive". Is this stuff good or should I find some kind of double sided automotive tape?

    I used fishing line #8 to remove my badges. Line broke a few times, but that's all I got. Took me about 5 min for each badge.
    Painted black with Krylon paint and finished with Krylon Clear satin. Might re-badge soon.

    p.s. If I rebadge I have this:
    http://www.3m.com/product/information/Scotch-Mounting-Tape.html

    Is it good enough?

    What about doing this on a black 2004? Think it would still show where the letters were due to fading? Wonder how difficult the TRD sticker would be?

    I didn't notice fading on my 06 but I had some rust outlines where the paint was eaten away. A lot of buffing later and you can hardly tell and it never stays clean anyway.
    This was after I got most of the glue off but before I buffed it
