I think you are talking about something like this (which is probably the one you referred to and doesn't appear will work with a bed cover - not to mention being for a Tacoma) There is this post: And this related one:
I'm sure that will come out just fine. He custom cut the 3M adhesive, which was a bunch of work (all told (including prep, paint, etc.), he said he spent between 5 and 6 hours on the two emblems). Here is the 3M: Here is the finished, mounted product:
He used a dremel to cut the tabs in the back. Once separated he dry sanded with 1,000 grit. Then wiped down with Isopropyl alcohol for prep. Then painted with any satin exterior or Automotive primer/paint combo. Spray many thin layers. Says he did about 6 each. Give a full day to dry.
Like this? Removed the logo, trimmed off the tabs in the back holding the red part in. Removed the red part, spray-painted the chrome with a semi gloss black (after some light sanding), then hot glued it back together. Here's what it looks like against the truck paint: Full disclosure, my buddy who is doing PPF and ceramic coating on my truck did it.
I agree with mafd2, I would definitely go with the LED headlights. Probably start with at least the LT Trail Boss trim level (if starting with that as a base on which to build).
