My truck is a GMC so I don't have the Bowtie. I did remove the "Sierra" and 4x4 off the truck box.

I like the badges, especially that big bad bowtie.

I say leave it on!

The only time I like debading is when you have a sleeper hot rod...

I feel taking the bow-tie off is like showing up to a wedding in cut-offs.
