    Forgive me if this is a stupid question but you don’t know what you don’t know.

    What do the tri-color yellow/orange/red badges signify that I see on some Toyota grills? I have seen the same badges in other tri-colors as well. I like the look but I just do not know what that’s all about.

    I promise I used Google before posting the question but I could not find anything. Thanks for posting.

    I have one too. Adds a touch of color with true meaning and history. It’s not that I am rice’ing it, this is a very capable vehicle and I intend to use it as such.
    It’s tiny, barely visible, only those who know, know.
    It’s not a foot wide wing on a front wheel drive Honda Civic with a loud exhaust.

    Blacked out badges, window deflectors, smoked 3rd brake light. I have a Borla muffler on order as well as some color matched engine cover stickers. I'll be painting the stock wheels soon as well. Falken tires in the fall as well.
    I have one as well but personally don't think of it as ricer just a nod to Toyota history.

    I always thought they should do a 4runner Pro Heritage Edition in this paint scheme, but perhaps a bit more toned down from this:

    You mean like this although not a Civic? I saw this at a red light a couple of weeks ago and could not resist taking a picture.

    I got one for a friend of mine with a blue Tacoma. I want to see which way he puts it on. He had an old school Celica so he’ll probably know though. I haven’t gotten around to putting mine on yet so I haven’t consulted google pics yet!

    From the pictures I've seen of Ivan Stewart's race trucks I think the lighter color should be to the left. I could be wrong but that's how I have mine. DSCN5475.jpg

    The yellow is always towards the front of the truck, which makes it hard to say which way the badge should go.

    True that's why I said I could be wrong lol. Maybe it's just that I like how that arrangement looks. To each his/her own on this one I guess.

    Tacovinyl is the original creator, there are some knockoffs out there.

    Also if you're looking for a plain grill, you can swap in the 14-19 piece. Lots of people giving those away because they're putting in the pro heritage pieces.
