    It is just a cool sounding trim level designation Toyota has used on many different models since the 70s.

    As far as I know it dates back to the 70's when it meant Steel Belted Radials and 5 speed transmission.

    The SR5 badge is there as a practice piece for de-badging the Tundra. It's at a nice level, so you don't have to squat to remove it. It's also small enough to remove quickly. Once you have mastered taking the SR5 badges off, you are ready to tackle the larger, more obscure, Toyota Tundra badges.

    - good reply - it's as aesy as the plastic V8 cliped on the grill

    remember though - it doesn't prepare you completely for the horizontal removal sites

    Back when the SR5 first came out, any car/truck with that package only came as a 5 speed. I've never even seen a 5 spd in a Tundra, even though I have seen plenty of SR5s.

    In my historical research, SR5 denoted the following for HiLux (the Tacoma's predecessor) trucks:

    S = Sport
    R = RN Motor Code
    5 = 5 Speed Transmission/Manual

    Now, there's some historical deviation between whether or not Toyota gave the SR5 designator first to the Corolla, then to the HiLux, or vice versa. The majority of references shows that the HiLux got it first, then the Corolla. This designation first appeared in the mid 70's.

    This information came from a variety of sources, including toyotaoffroad.com, and Dianne Whitmire, who was kind enough to verify this with Toyota corporate back when I was writing the Tundra FAQ.

    I was told it stood for Sports Revision 5

    The five did indicate 5 speed however which is ironic considering the Tundra came with a 4 speed auto initially. But its really the same thing as SILVERADO, XLT, LARAMIE they're just used to denote trim levels.

    Normally I tell the dealer to remove the dealer logo from the car/truck. But, my tundra had a lame trim type dealer logo that you can remove quiet easy with your fingers. When I signed the papers to buy my tundra, the truck was sitting out in the parking lot, I was out there peeling off the logo while waiting for the sales people to finish up the papers and such.
