    hey guys i wanted to know everyones opinion on whether to plasti dip or debadge the "sides and tailgate" emblems on a MGM colored taco. Im pretty much sitting on the fence right about now, but will do one or the other this weekend since it'll be pretty warm. your opinions count! thanks in advance

    ps. if you have an MGM taco with either plasti dip'd or debadge, it'll be great if u can post a picture of it so i can get an idea on how it will turn out. thanks again!

    I've been on the fence too, but I'm gonna debadge mine shortly after I pick it up tomorrow. Good for collecting dirt. If people don't know it's a Tacoma, let them guess.

    Keep the badges, I like the way they break up the lines on the truck.

    Plasti derp is great. I love it. If anything, plasti derp the badges and if your still not satisfied take them off then. It's easier to derp them and remove them later than it is to put them back on.

    The first thing I did was debadge my MGM. You could always plasti dip them, remove them later if you dont like it.

    Currently mine are on, but I'm seriously considering taking off all the badges this weekend. Too many words on the truck IMO.
