    Did it look good after the dealer did it or could you still see the dark spots?

    Remove them in stages and see what you like.

    I've left the TRD stickers and the "TACOMA" on the doors and tail gate on my BSP and I'm liking it so probably won't remove the rest.

    I removed my TRD Sport decals the other day. Do kinda like the clean look, however I will be getting some new decals from Sock eventually.
