    If wanting paint, remove the badges first. If doing plastidip, you can leave the badges on. Watch some videos. They'll relieve done doubts.

    If painting, remove badges and remove adhesive from both badge and vehicle. I used a plastic scraper to get some of the adhesive foam off, but was super careful and then used goo gone. Clean with car wash soap after so no residue.

    I think the paint method is more permanent and is more durable. I ended up painting the badges and then plastidipping the grille. If the grill gets damaged, i might be painting it also. Plastdipping is easy to do, and easy to repair also, however. To each his own.

    What did you use to put the badge back on? 3M?

    Just check out some vids. The only place the plastidip won't peel away from is the center of the letter A. Most guys in the VIDEOS I've seen use a simple wooden toothpick to remove it from there. Tweezers are very cheap and an excellent suggestion.

    The best part about plastidip is it's not 100% permanent and if you mess up, you just peel it off and try again.

    As an option, I've seen covers for these badges but they are not cheap. Definitely not as cheap as plastidip. I believe you can find them on ebay.

    I paid 1600 no discount. Without linex, it's like 1200.

    Handled well this weekend on my trip. Good peace of mind, which was my biggest reason for purchasing.

    I love the ruggedness. Price tag, not so much.

    Thanks for all the input about dipping/painting the badges. Will watch some videos on it and see. I need to decide exactly what I want to do with everything.

    Has anyone that got the Pro grill sold their stock grill? If so, how much is a reasonable amount to expect to get back for it?

    I'm tempted to paint or dip my stock OR grille, and also get a Pro. I'm really just not sure if there would be any point because I don't know if i would really ever swap my grills out just because. I don't know what option i would like best either.

    I'm interested in a Pro grille with the Toyota letters painted Inferno. That's what I would want if and when I get one. But I don't know if those letters are removable?
