    Long story short, I came out from the mall only to find someone had stolen my tacoma badges (both driver and passenger side)... I dont know what their intentions to do with them, but damn... :mad:

    Damn that sucks!! Sorry to hear the news. Damn people these days have no fuggin morals anymore!! But I believe in Karma so whatever goes around, comes around. If I were you, I would just remove all the adhesive with some goo gone and just leave it debadged. You just might like it!;)

    The economy must be that bad right now... I did plan on doing the debadging, just never had time to.. So now I have a reason to do so... Still.. It sucks..

    Sorry man. If I walked up on someone fucking with my truck like that I would probably beat the shit out of them. Then call the cops.

    It's either a tacoma owner going for a repair/rebadge on the cheap OR

    a cheap and shady body shop doing some repair work and saving money on parts.

    Scumbags.

    I really don't think it's the economy that pushes folks to steal petty things like this. A thief's, a thief no matter how much money's in their pocket. It's a question of morals.

    These types of things really piss me off...sorry to heat about that OP.
