Are the emblems too gaudy?

    My opinion is......not a fan of the emblems, but as everyone says, if you like it, that is all that matters.

    When it comes to fonts, it doesn't have to be similar to the one I used. Just unlike the stock emblems on the truck. I have gone through all my fonts and for lack of a better word, raped the Internet for fonts and I'm stuck...

    But thank you for the birthdays wishes guys. It was a good one, and yes. Back to TW when I was winding down. Haha

    And as for the red, it's a good idea. I do agree it would stand out more, but it wouldn't match the color scheme of the truck

    I had to check your profile to see if you were a dude or not. You asked for honesty...

    Okay. Holy shit. Doesn't matter if I'm a dude or a chick, or both even.

    This conversation is not about me. It's about the truck, and the style I'm including with a mod. You want me to get some flower decals too? I'll put anything on my truck that looks good, as long as it does in fact look good. I'm utilizing a forum to assist me to getting the right design for my truck. I could give a rats ass how man people check what gender I am.

    And I say that with love.

    Ok what matter is if you like it. I personally like it in the smaller writing at the bottom of the grill. NOT girlie at all

    What uf you milled a different style of the TRD logo? The only TRD thing I've seen on a grille are those chrome looking emblem ones, a bigger more flat metal one would be cool?

    For some reason the black on white (body emblems) look okay (to me) while the white on black (grill emblem) looks bad...

    But, like some have said, it's about what you like or don't like, not us. The best that you could ask for is for other factors or things to take into consideration when trying to make up your mind about something looking "good" or "right," ultimately it has to be your opinion.

    Good Luck!
