    I found the FJ ones looked way too small in there.

    So I built my own TOYOTA logo. I decided to color match it because in white or silver it would've been quite "in your face" and my truck is color matched everywhere.

    Sorry for the dirty truck, I took some during my last trail run

    Back to square one after the 2001. So...
    IT IS VERY BIG.

    But good job on the font match, and good call to color match so it DOESN'T FRIGHTEN THE CHILDREN.

    Whadja make it from? Sheet aluminum? How about pics form inside to see how you attached it?

    Emblem looks good. Nice looking truck too. Is that a custom rack that your buddy has in the second picture?

    yes custom rack on the white truck, built by a local guy (two trucks int he club have the same rack)

    the metal is stainless steel sheet metal

    it's attached with emblem 3M tape. Will see if it holds, although it seems to hold up good as I power sprayed the heck out of them when cleaning the truck and it didn't move.

    The paint might not hold with that much surface (it's etch primed but still), we'll see.

    Font match was done by using the official logo and converting to autocad.

    GO BIG ! ! ! or GO HOME ! ! !

    I think its matches your truck with the front bumper. I don't see it looking good on a Stock one. . . I think the biggest you can go is the Original Sema Satoshi version.

    Looks Much BUENO! :D
