    Hey guys, so recently debaged my 05 silver access cab and the only things left are the TRD off road decals. What do you guys think, should i take them off for a cleaner look?(thats what im leaning towards) or will i regret taking them off after i do. Any opinion would be great. Thanks.

    dunno.. the rest of the surrounding paint may have light swirls and sun fade and then the area where you removed the decal will look fresh and have no scratches.. and when viewed from an angle it may be pretty noticeable...

    Haha-- I had the EXACT same reaction. Immediate regret, followed by a few months now of regretting not removing them sooner.

    Keep the look clean-- ditch the stickers!

    Billies 5100's front set to 1.75 plus 1/4 taco lean spacer. Rears Billies plus AAL for a 2" leaf. 265/75/16 BGF's. Double din Kenwood stereo w/bluetooth and steering wheel controls and JBL speakers front & rear. Heavy duty battery. Billet grill blacked out. K&N air filter and MBRP cat-back. Just tuned it up new plugs and new front brake pads. Steel powered coated tailgate cap. Billet Grill painted black & factory roof racks. Oh new head lights thanks to toyota.
    Take them off and use some mother swirl compound & polish. Then wax you will never know that they were on the truck. The bad thing is the fender will look so good you will have to polish & was the entire truck. And when your done if you miss the decal you can always buy new news on fleabay for $20. I like them Naked.....:dancingbacon:
