Meh...Although my signature pic doesn't show it, I took my Texas Edition badges off that were about in the same place. I prefer the smooth look, not only that, but because of the way the badges are made, with numerous cutouts, dirt and road grime tends to collect within them and not only cause them to come loose, but the dirt acts like sandpaper on the paint.

Texas edition vs. High Country is apple's to orange's.
Take the texas badge off, still looks like an LT. Take the High Country badge off and you downgraded to an LT look.

I like the badges but to be honest I'd take the Texas badge off.
I don't blame roo, I'd be too embarrassed to leave it on too.

I'll post a pic when I get home of the giant square hunk of chrome that is the "High Country" It looks like a zit on a teenager's forehead. The 19's have a much more attractive badge. If it was similar I might have left it.
The grill and tails tell the story of what it is...plus I know what it is that's what matters.

Your truck looked best as it was in your sig pic to be honest. Sometimes people go too far and can't stop themselves. When it looks its best it's time to stop or you start jumping the shark like Tracy's truck for instance. His truck was beautiful till he started adding light bars, disco lights etc.
Of course that is my opinion but then my opinion is the best one I know of.

Plus the headlights and taillights seperate the LT and lower trucks from the LTZ and high country.

I definitely like the debadged look better. Much cleaner look than to have the model and trim level plastered on 3 sides of the truck haha

My truck looks it's best when I say it does...not when your opinion tells you to tell me when it does.

No sir everybody has a different opinion. Your truck looked best as is in your signature to me. If you like it how you have it that's great but people do have opinions and they like different things.

Not wanting to fight with you, just stating I liked how it looked before better.
