I'm upgrading my 2001 DC TRD to a 2003 DC TRD. From a Midwestern truck with the first hints of rust (and inevitably more to come) to a Colorado vehicle with zero corrosion and the exterior color I always wanted (white). It's a bit of a project 'cause my 01 interior is a better color in better condition, so I'm in the process of changing *everything* between the two trucks!

The tailgate badges on new-to-me-2003 are worse for wear though, with the chrome peeled off in a number of places. I've found the TOYOTA and TACOMA badges, but I can't find the part or the part number for the "SR5 V6" badge. Anyone got a reference for this one?



The TOYOTA badge looks a lot better with the new one in place.

Toyota's factory parts listings don't give part numbers for 2001 - 2004 tailgate badges. I'm not sure why this is ...

I can confirm the factory part number for a 1995.5 - 2000 'SR5 V6' tailgate badge was:

PT211-SR981

... but I don't know whether the pre-2001 badges were identical to the 2001 - 2004 badges.

Bad news (?) ...

I've checked 3 online Toyota specialist parts vendors, and all list the part number I cited as 'discontinued' and 'not available for purchase'.

If you absolutely have to have the decal, I'd suggest you carefully remove the old one and have a trim / decal shop use it as the template to make you a new one.

That's a good place to start, and easy enough to confirm, Enola.

The TOYOTA badge is PT211-TT980. That one's shared a shared part number with early RAV4 spare tire cover badges.
The TACOMA badge is PT211-TC980.
The SR5 side pillar badge is PT211-SR982. This part number is discussed in another thread on here.

My local dealer couldn't find it, and one of the guys there recalled they were listed in some sort of hard-copy-only accessories catalog that he couldn't find. Odd.

So PT211-SR981 is in the right series, and with your info another forum had a thread giving the same part number for item 24 on this diagram. Yay!

Ugh. No, it's not required. I guess that's the reason none show up anywhere, and several months of infrequent searching on eBay have shown every other badge multiple times, but not this one. Thx for checking.

The one on my 2001 is in perfect condition. Maybe I need to add this to the long list of parts I'm exchanging between the two trucks!

The PRERUNNER SR5 tailgate badge has part number PT211-20130, I believe. A different series than the others. Perhaps that's because the Prerunner wasn't marketed when the original 1995.5-2000 series of part numbers were assigned. Or perhaps there's a later series of tailgate badge part numbers yet to be determined.

The PreRunner line wasn't introduced until the 1998 model year.
