    Heat gun and dental floss have always worked good for me. Just take your time and it will be fine. Goo gone helps remove any left over glue and then clean and wax to protect the paint and enjoy.

    Yupp just like the others are saying, searching works well. But Other then being a dick ill let you know how I did it...

    -Got my heat gun out and heated up the double sided sticky tape. (Make sure not to over heat bc it will destroy your paint job and clear coat on the truck)

    -Grab some thick fishing line or floss (I used fishing line) and work it behind the emblems. Once its behind, move the fishing line/floss in a sawing motion back and forth.

    -Do not pry on the emblem with anything unless you intend on ruining your paint. Just take your time and do the job right.

    -Once emblems are removed get some goo gone and remove the rest of the adhesive. If there is a "ghost" emblem still present, get some fine rubbing compound and use it lightly on those areas. Once you have it all removed, finish with a nice waxing job!!

    -Grab a beer/drink of choice and enjoy your nice new "DE-BADGED" tacoma!

    goodluck man.
