Icon2 Tailgate emblem from Walmart??

I seen walmart carries a FORD hitch cover. The metal emblem weighs more obviously than a factory 06+ emblem. But i was wondering if I could use this instead of a factory 06+ tailgate emblem.

It seems to be the right size, just weighs more.....Any thoughts?

IIRC its just plastic covered not gel coated. I don't see it lasting as long.

I have wondered the same thing. You have to cut it off and grind it down pretty good. I just don't know if it will stay on the tailgate

I'm sure if you got the 3M emblem tape it would.

No No, the emblem is loose alrady in there, you have to screw it to the hitch thing. I pulled the emblem out and its flat on the back, but heavy....Just a thought anyways

Oh I always thought it was one piece. They are not too expensive, just try it and see what happens

I was thinking of doing that about a week ago when I saw them in TSC, only it was a brushed aluminum one. It was just a little too small for the grille though, I don't think it would have looked right.
