    Finally, got my "first 4x4" in a Tacoma. Barcelona Red w/ JBL & Entune - Then traded it in on a Ridgeline.
    .

    Nice truck, congrats.

    IMO, "debadging" gives the truck a much smoother/cleaner look and makes it much easier to wash & wax too.

    I debadged mine including the TRD stickers on the rear fenders.

    Truck looks really good. I vote keep the badges. Debadging makes the truck look very plain and boring. Plus every second truck is debadged now

    Thanks for all the complements, i agree that debadging gives it a clean look bu i like the contrast on this truck with the crome. i also put up a picture of the grill. And just to let you know i got this truck for $1000 less then my other one.
