Is my 2011 Tacoma supposed to have Tacoma badges on the doors?

    Hi,

    I am wondering if my 2011 Tacoma regular cab 4X2 is supposed to have Tacoma badges on the driver and passanger doors, mine odes not. Someone I know has has a 2005 model of the same truck and it has Tacoma badges on both doors. Other Tacomas I look at have them too, but they are not 2011's. Whenever I see a 2011 Tacoma I always forget to look. Did Toyota delete the Tacaom door badges for 2011?

    My 2005 doesn't.

    Edit

    D'oh! My 2005 DOES, shows how infrequently I ogle my plain jane 5-lug.

    My 2011 tx pro has tacoma badges on the doors. It does NOT have the new gauge cluster background...maybe that's why.

    he's got base model later 2011...

    at the price of a tacoma, you'd think better quality and less cost cutting, but if closely looked at can be seen in more places than just badging...unfortunately

    Toyota figured out all the cool kids are debadging in the states and decided to make everyone cool.

    Prerunner excepted, you still have to hide that fact yourself. :eek:

    Regular cabs no longer have the badges (which is what the OP owns). I should have clarified.
