    Just paint them yourself, that's what everyone typically does. You'll be searching a long time if you try to find ones already painted, especially a specific color and not just black or something, which I haven't even seen.

    Visit the Build.
    http://www.duplicolor.com/ is a great place for color-matched paint.

    Also, since you have a SWB, you could order X-runner badges--which are already color-matched. However, it is going to be pricey.

    If you really want prepainted coor matched badges, you can buy them from Toyota. They come color matched from the factory on the X-Runners, but I'm sure they will cost a small fortune...... :cool:

    For 1 badge is not a small fortune, but if you do all of the badges on the truck, it adds up......

    I appreciate it but mine are already chrome so I can do it myself. I guess I was being slightly lazy and I didn't want to mess anything up. But on the other hand, if I do it. Then I just appreciate my truck that much more.

    Its pretty easy to do. It was one of the first mods I did. I used a plastic putty knife and a hair dryer. Take your time and they come right off.

    Best advice I got on this mod is to put tape around the emblem where it sits now so you know right where they go when you are done.

    Also, check for that paint on Amazon.com. I found a can for my wife's car for $9. Perfect match.
