    Yes!!! I was able to get a factory tundra 4x4 badge and black tacoma badges straight from the tundra/tacoma manufacturing plant here in SA.

    So I took off all the chrome badges and spray painted the new ones flat black. :cool:

    Ha it's so much easier putting on brand new badges. I looked at the other debadging threads for the great "how to". Check it out. My first real mod...

    I posted this pic up before...but this time just for comparison..
    [​IMG]

    after I took off badge...nastyness...

    New badges...
    The one in the middle is not painted...its just straight from the factory...the one below and above it painted flat black "rustoleom flat black"

    After putting them on...

    I like it!!
    It reminds me sometime back some guy told me, "Is your truck 4x4?"...I said .."Yes, it is why?"
    Well it does not say 4x4...he said. I told him that "It's on the mudflaps"...but I think I will do the 4x4 sign on the tailgate!!:rolleyes:;):D

    not at all, I used the blow dryer to heat up the adhesive on them, and used fishing ling in a saw like motion behind it from one side to the other. then I found out I really didn't need the blow dryer for it to really work, it just went a wee bit slower.

    Can you believe, my sister works at the toyota tundra/tacoma manufacturing plant here in SA and one of her co-workers DID NOT know that they made 4x4 tacomas.:facepalm::smack: How do you work there and NOT know that? :confused:

    I really like the contrast of the white "4x4" on the mud flaps and the black one on the tail gate.
