    I have worked hard to build my 2016 Trail Premium as a nice Toyota rig without having TRD or Pro accessories or bits slathered on it. Someone actually commented some time ago saying he rarely see's done up 4runners that have the front emblem still vs the heritage grill. To that point there is a specific gear shift lever that I like but haven't bought it yet because it has TRD on it... lol

    This truck needs an alignment. It's chewing up the outer shoulder on the fronts.

    I built out my SR5p to be a TRD slayer. I feel like I would be downgrading by putting a Pro sticker on my vehicle. So a long time ago I de-badged the 4Runner instead to leave it a mystery.

    I'll co-sign on this. That said, I did put black TRD PRO wheels on my Nautical Blue SR5. I didn't care for the OEM SR5 wheels, not a fan of Methods, etc. I also swapped out the silver OEM rack for a black OEM rack, along with the black badge overlays. To me the black complements the Nautical Blue really well, and isn't as jarring as the OEM metallic silver/aluminum/chrome against the Nautical Blue paint. I will admit I have been tempted to get the OEM Heritage Grill because I love the look, but I can't swallow that insane price (I'm not a fan of the knock-off versions). The sombrero isn't bad, but I don't really like how it breaks up, rather intrudes into that horizontal trim piece in the grill area. I like the continuity of the straight, black OEM Heritage piece.

    And I agree, the badge swapping to me is the big "no-no" as far as trim level "fouls". I don't see any issue with swapping/upgrading/modding a Toyota Model with other Toyota parts. It doesn't make said trim model a wannabe this model or that model.

    This was my plan originally, glad to see someone else appreciates a little understatement. Looks good!
