Well there is possibly one way to find out if holes are there.
Open tailgate remove the top panel covering the tailgate handle. Use a flashlight to view down into the opening to see if anything is sticking through in the area where the emblem is. Just a thought.

damn it, i thought i was gonna get me an emblem. I dont know why you dont like it, they look beast. I love mine!

to tell the truth i hated the 06 models when they came out because of the no chrome bumbers and bigass emblems, but now that i own one, i love them!

BUT i do need another emblem as mine is fading and coming apart on the front of the truck

Just post a for trade in the classifieds and see if any one wants to trade their older tailgate for yours. That way you have the small emblem but no holes or putty to deal with.

I just changed mine out last week. In my 2006, there were 3 holes. No indentation that I can remember. The oval is 9" or so wide....so I estimate the holes will be around 6 or 7'" from the left one to the right one.

I liked the giant emblem...best bet would be to see if someone wants to trade.

Yeah I agree 100%, I was just thinking on the possibility of you having a connection in body work. Because while they will charge you out the rear end, it's a very easy job, just putty, sand, and spray... in other words its a job that a family member / family friend in body work wouldn't mind doing.

To find out if there are holes (although we've already had witness testimonials that there are), why not just unscrew the plate on the inside of the tailgate? One, issue would be if it was painted after it was put on. I have a bedliner on mine so I cant go check.

Also, to remove, someone said use a guitar string. That would be cool, but just make sure it's just a single steel wire. If it's a wire with windings around it (lower pitch strings), then those windings could abrade the finish. People recommend dental floss and heat. But, the area is so large under the emblem that floss might not be strong enough.

Please give me a few more years to get used to it.

Can't argue with you on that.

I have no doubt the rear emblem is the same as the front one which has three alignment shafts. So, I'm a believer now. I can't not fill the holes with full paint. So, I think I'm going to punt for now.

I can't believe they did the same thing with the "RANGER" emblems. I can't get my hand in to feel around behind them so I'll leave those for now too.

that seems to be a common problem. the fleet rangers i've seen have all had varying degrees of faded/peeling

So when you are taking off those stupid dealership badges, same principle? Or is it possible for there to be holes behind a dealership badge?

first, welcome to the forum

second, it should only be double sided tape, since the factory doesn't install them.
