Chris Davis originally did the legwork on pulling this together. :bowdown:

TLCA is planning to order grille badges for members. To do so, they want a pre-order count of people who are interested. The price isn't fixed yet: depending on the number ordered, it will cost $30 - $40.

Post here if you would like to buy one (you don't need to pay anything now).

Here's a picture of what they will look like.

I would look elsewhere for a mfgr

I believe this is the same place that did the Rising sun ones. anyone else not impressed with how they stayed on? We had a lot of issues with the studs coming off. Since they are a made to order they had one or two extra and everyone else was SOL. Otherwise once it falls off it's gone or it's just another curio on your desk.

great idea though

I'd take two please! Mine has weathered well on my front bumper. I used 3m two sided tape and I think I did fasten it with the pins too....not positive,

At least two...likely 3 depending on the mounting issue resolution.

They mount to an open spot in your front grille. Here's a picture of the Trail Teams grille badge on the front grille of an FJ Cruiser.

We did one for Rising Sun a few years ago. I'll see if I can find mine and shoot a picture.

Wes your comments are really helpful and I will circle back with the potential vendor..Sounds like the RS badges had a welded stud, and they did not hold well.

These badges will have a threaded stud, not welded, just like the Trail Teams badge has. I have a TT badge, not moved in 2 years..and one from the manufacturer we are considering with threaded studs.

I am going to speak to the manufacturer about the past issues, just to make sure we are not going to have the same problem and share some history from our club's past purchase.

I have had several great reviews from using this vendor for several similar badge orders, so I am feeling confident we have the right vendor...They are also in Littleton, so happy to support local business.

looked dang tempting at about $30 + a few bucks frt, but now, with freight, it's almost $50:eek:

We will be doing a bulk order. So the cost will be $40 even to RS members.

I'm closing this thread now that we have the official cost ($40). Please go to this thread to officially reserve (and pay) for TLCA grille badges. (http://www.risingsun4x4club.org/forum2/showthread.php?t=12549)

Thanks!
