To badge or debadge. That is the question.

Well, it is on a lot of truck forums anyway.

So, what should you do? Do you leave the factory badges on or do you debadge your truck completely?

Ultimately whether or not you debadge your truck is completely your decision. Some truck owners swear by it, other like to leave them on.

I spent some time questioning other truck owners I know, and below you can see some of their reasons as to why it’s a good idea, and also some reasons to not debadge, just to keep things nice and balanced out.

Before I get into those different reasons to keep the badges on or to remove them completely, I asked truck owners on some of the leading truck modification forums what they prefer, and here’s what they said.

Should I Debadge My Truck

As you can see, the guys who love to mod and style their trucks are overwhelmingly in favor of taking the badges off.

But rather than following the crowd, I want to give you a bit more detail on why they said you should debadge your truck or not… and below you can see the top 17 reasons for either doing it, or not doing it, starting off with the guys who said yes.

Reasons to Debadge Your Truck

#1: It Can Look Sleeker and Cleaner

I’ve personally done it on my truck, and I love the way it looks. Lots of my buddies have done exactly the same too and just prefer the way it looks.

#2: It Can Look More Exclusive

Again, this is completely down to personal preference, but many truck and pickup owners believe that having no badges actually makes their ride look more exclusive and less cheap.

#3: Makes It Easier to Clean and Wax

Once the badges are off it’s actually a lot easier to clean and wax your truck. You can wax all day long and not catch wax into the badge or snag your clothes into the 3D badging.

#4: Chrome Badging Can Look Out of Date

Many trucks pre seemed to go way over the top with chrome badging, and it can look a little old-fashioned these days. Just like you wouldn’t wear tight luminous jogging shorts from the s these days (or maybe you would?) why let your truck look like a fashion victim from a bygone era?

#5: New Badges Can Look Ugly

It’s not just the older badges that can look ugly, sometimes even the more modern ones can. For example, newer Dodge owners might prefer the old classic era stand-up Ram’s head versus some of the new badging that has recently been used.

#6: Badges Can Clutter Up the Bodywork

Even if your truck’s badges do look modern and funky, too many of them can also create a cluttered look. We all know those people who go overboard with the jewellery, and wear way too much. The only person who gets away with that is Mr T.

#7: Caving in to Peer Pressure

All the guys in your neighborhood have taken their badges off. Do you want to be the only one who hasn’t? I don’t cave in to peer pressure myself, but it could be important to you if you do want to follow the crowd.

#8: You Can Replace with Custom Badges

Why have a manufacturer’s badge on your truck, when you could instead go full custom with something totally uniquely designed that means something personal to you? Or perhaps you just buy a skull or Transformers badge and slap that on instead if you fancy yourself a bit of a maverick?

#9: Why Advertise the Manufacturer?

You might not want to be a billboard for your truck’s manufacturer. One of the guys I spoke to who has debadged his Dodge was very clear about why he took the badges off. He said he wasn’t receiving a check from Dodge to advertise their product!

Reasons to Keep the Badges on Your Truck

# Leave Them on and Color Match Them

You could leave them on and then do a color match to suit your truck. Painting over the chrome to give more of a transparent color match can also work to make the truck look meaner and more aggressive.

# Why Not Just Move Them Around?

I recently saw a Dodge RAM where the RAM and Hemi engine badges had been moved to the bottom of the tailgate on either side. It looked awesome if I’m honest. Again though, that’s a completely personal point of view.

# The Next Owner Might Want Them On

You might not give two shits about the what the next owner thinks, but if you are going to be selling your truck on in the near future, it might be worth keeping them on just in case.

# Are You Hiding Something?

Many of the guys who keep their badges on seem to think that “the debadgers” are hiding something, and perhaps don’t have as good a truck as they are trying to make out. For example, they might ask “what expensive trim package or engine upgrade did they not get”. Hmmm…

# You Want People to Know What You’ve Got

If you spent all that extra money on the super sports package, expensive trim, or upgraded engine then the manufacturer might stick a special little badge on there. And perhaps you want people to know that this isn’t just the standard basic version. If so, leave them on and bask in the glory of everyone knowing you have money to burn.

# Bad Debadging Can Leave a Mark

If you get it wrong and don’t take the badges off correctly then you could damage the paintwork, or even start to see fading occur as the paint gets older.

And Finally…

And finally, this post wouldn’t be complete without a tongue in cheek and more humorous response, so here’s numbers 16 and 17 in the reasons I found.

# Debadge to Confuse the Cops

One of the owners I spoke to said that he debadged his truck to make the local traffic cops scratch their heads when they pulled him over… which apparently happens to him a lot!

# Debadge and Kid Yourself You’re Not Poor

Another guy said that by debadging you can kid yourself into thinking you’ve got something better than you actually have.

He said something along the lines of that if you’re poor you debadge, and you can then stand there looking at your low horsepower truck wishing you had chosen something a little bit more exciting.

Handy Hint: If you now want to do this yourself, read this guide on how to debadge your truck easily and cleanly, leaving no mess or marks in 4 simple steps.


Ultimately, it’s your baby and your choice on whether or not you should debadge your truck.

If you do decide to debadge and don’t like the way it looks, it’s simple and easy enough to buy replacements and fit them back on again, so you really have nothing to lose apart from a little bit of time in removing them and polishing the bodywork up.

 Let me personally thank you for visiting. I have built this site to help you figure out if I am the right fit for you and your worldI hope that I am!

Darren took my 9 year old Acura MDX and made it spectacular! I believe his knowledge and attention to "detail" goes above and beyond!
Thank you!

Craig Leitch
Foothill Ranch, CA

I'm somewhat of a car nut. Always have been and I don't mind it a bit. I also thought I had the very best detailer out there but boy did I blow that one. My son insisted I try Darren at Auto Fetish and I succumbed to the pressure and did. I did not realize what perfection looked like until Darren announced my car was completed. The depth of the shine, the attention to detail and the thoroughness of the work were well beyond any past experience. No question Darren really takes his work seriously and the customer reaps an enormous benefit. If you take pride in your wheels, Darren's the man!!
Larry T.

Darren - Thank you for an honest quote over the phone, early arrival, and most importantly an outstanding detail job which restored my car back to excellent condition. The paint touch up looks great and my leather seats are super clean and sport a "new" conditioned look. Keep up the good work!
Bill C.
Fullerton, CA

Darren - I appreciate your work even more as I see it day after day! even though I live in Northern California, there was nobody I felt right about in my area so I knew I was in for a drive to come down to you. I am so glad I did. You were also so very accommodating!
Ray P.
Pleasanton, CA

Wow! Our RV looks amazing! That front end literally glows. Darren, I am more than happy; really! Our RV did not look that good the day we got it brand new. No seriously Darren, it really didn't look this good! Thank you!

Darren - I just got a call from my mom and she is really, really happy with her car! This is the reason I referred you as you are professional in all you do, so thank you. That car means more to her than her children; you have a customer for life!
Thank you again!

Placentia, CA

Darren - the scratch you fixed on my Mustang Cobra looks really, really good! Unless you are a professional car buyer you would not even notice it. It looks so much better than before; thank you!
Dennis A.
Anaheim Hills, CA

I spent considerable time looking for the right person to detail my Porsche Cayman-S (Black). I was impressed with the recommendations and accolades Darren received on his website including the samples of cars he had detailed. I was even more delighted after he finished detailing my car. It looked amazing; inside, outside, the wheels, everything. I will be using Darren for my detailing needs and will recommend him to the folks in my Porsche club.

I have been using Darren’s professional detail services, Auto Fetish Detail, for close to 15 years now and continue to do so. Darren has taught me and my staff just what real detailing is. Darren is incredibly meticulous and attentive to details. Whenever I have a customer who demands the best, I tell them to call Darren at Auto Fetish. I can always tell when Darren has detailed a car because the level of quality is like no other! He is not the cheapest guy in town, but you can’t beat the quality!

I have known and used Darren's services for 20+ years. I own Xlnt Tint of Anaheim inc. and see many cars every day. When we have a particular customer that needs top notch service, there is nobody else I would trust but Darren! He is very meticulous, and knowledgeable. If you are in need of someone who will take their time but most importantly bring over 20 years of hands on knowledge, this is the company for you.

"Wow! Now that is what my car paint is supposed to look like; I can't believe what a difference you made! This is exactly what needed to be done, thank you!"
Mike N.
Rancho Santa Margarita, CA

"I took a leap of faith by picking someone on the Internet to detail my bosses boat! I wasn't disappointed! Darren was professional, punctual, and very easy to deal with, and best of all, he did a FANTASTIC JOB! I couldn't have been happier. We will definitely be a repeat customer!!"
Maxim Security Systems
Corona, CA

"We have seen the work of other detailers in removing various forms of vinyl car decals and vehicle wraps. Often we have to spend additional hours due to the incomplete removal of old graphics, before we can apply new graphics. Save yourself time and aggravation by calling Darren first and have it done right the first time around; this is the way it should be done!"

Keep your distance with everyone at work. It seems that you have no favorites among teachers. You have a reputation for being a fair leader. Here's the answer to your doubt, Hank. I absolutely cannot stand the informal relationship that has developed within these walls, within the walls of the college.

Come on crustacean. she suggested. - You know that I love crustaceans and sideways. - she smiled a lustful smile. - Come on.


Well, here I am so crazy. She burst into tears, I had to calm her down again. When she calmed down more or less, I said: - My appearance with you during the day is completely excluded.
