Should I remove the TRD Sport sticker?

Discussion in '2016 + Toyota Tacoma' started by Geo Adventure Pro, Mar 8, 2018.

  1. Just bought a 2018 cement color sport. I'm going to black out (dip) the Tacoma and V6 chrome as well as the fender flares. Not really digging on the TRD Sport graphic. Does anyone have pics with this removed and what's the best way? Also, is this some form of sacrilege in the Toyota world? I'm kinda surprised by how many people keep the graphics.

    I removed the TRD Sport graphic from my 2011 taco in 2011. I now have a 2016 TRD Sport but left graphic on. I removed the 2011 with a blowdryer on high and start heating the edge of graphic . You will be able to start peeling it away. Takes a little bit of time but not really that big of a deal.

    There’s a lot of people that debadge the Tacos.
    Heat, goo gone, and fishing line or a good plastic scraper. Just be careful with the paint.

I took the V6 and Tacoma badges off with a heat gun and fishing line. The TRD offroad sticker I did it on a warm day and just used my fingernail to start it. Once I got it started I pulled it up at a 45 degree angle and kept a constant and consistent pull at that angle until it was off. There was hardly any residue left over. I used a little goo gone to clean it up. Warm soap and water to wash it. Used some spray wax on it and haven’t looked back. I love the way it looks with no badges.

    I’d take them all off. It looks cleaner that way.

    Nice truck! I think that's the look I'm going to lead toward.

    Thanks. I think you’ll be happy with everything off. The 2018 cement sport will look like the 2017 Pro if it’s debadged, has a pro grille and you remove the plastic lower air dam valance.

    This is a Sport minus all the stickers and badges. I used a heat gun and PLASTIC razor blade. Piece of cake!

    I bet the guys in the 20’s running booze would loose it if someone drove up in that to pick up bottles. Haha

    I like my TRD stickers and emblems too. I’ve thought about blacking them out because I don’t really care for the chrome. I added this today. IMG_1566.JPG

    Back when that was said daily by grade school children. Ask an 8 yr old if they know what the pledge of allegiance is 9/10 won’t be able to tell you or even know what you’re talking about.
