    So i'm in the process of building my Satoshi grill, about 90% done with the body filler job, already got a place to color match it for 100 bucks, just have to finish sanding it.

    What i'm considering now is the type of logo i want in the bottom corner. I don't want an emblem in the middle since i might be doing lights behind it later on. Both are pretty inexpensive, just wanted to see what everyone else thinks.

    First option:

    Second option:

    This will be in the bottom left corner of the grill when looking at it from the front. In case you're wondering where i found the "Supercharged" logo, i just ebay'd "Supercharged logo"

    Also this would be the only "Supercharged" logo on the truck. I think that preserves the "sleeper" status of the truck since it is in the front. So when someone pulls up next to me thinking their car has bigger minerals than mine, they wont be able to tell it supercharged just by looking at it. On a regulated track of course. ;)

    Supercharged for uniqueness. If you got a Supercharger in that truck I would brag. Plus I think it'll look nice:)

    TRD for sure.. The supercharged one looks like something some kid would stick all over his neon or civic, along with his stick on scoops

    Is there an option for "none?" Never been a fan of badges. Stock or aftermarket.

    Don't use that Audi one.

    What about having SockMonkey make you one in the same font as the "Tacoma".

    I actually like that supercharged one, I would go with that. If I had a s/c I would definately get a little something like that to show it. I like your "sleeper" logic too ;)

    I wouldn't advertise it... I'd just let it speak for itself when the time is right. Nice truck.

    Thanks for voting everyone, After comparing the 2 logos on the finished grill i decided to go with the TRD logo. This has been an extremely tough decision :D

    Great budget build! Came out so clean!

    Hey where'd you get your ribbon sticker on your rear window? Just curious as I've seen it before on the site. And if it's in support of cancer research I'm all on board.

    Anyway, I think it looks pretty sweet, wayy better than the one TRD gives you

    ...its funny, I've noticed that people w/out SCs always say they wouldn't put anything about an SC on their truck (if had one did). When you drop that dough on an SC, and you really know how much torque it puts out and how much more fun your truck is to drive, its hard not to want to show it off a tiny tiny bit. Nothing wrong with a classy, not too shouty emblem

    Yah! i've seen your post with that before, great choice!


    I decided to keep my truck sleeper, but i was really tempted to put the "supercharged" tags on it. Decided against it, thought the whine from the SC itself if enough advertisment lol
