So I've looked everywhere. Dennis Carpenter, lmc, bronco graveyard, eBay, etc and no luck. They do have the lariat badge but they're too small. I dunno if my badge plates are not original to my 82 or what but they're almost 4 inches long.

Anyone know where I can find a set of badges that will fit instead of replacing the whole plate cause I'm sure they didn't remove them when they painted the truck so there's gonna be brown paint under there. Having a plate with brown paint edges will irk me moreso then not having the lariat badge... Anyone?

I had to keep doing ebay searches for my Eddie Bauer badges, but I found them one at a time after a few months. It was kind of the same deal, the chrome bezel was there on my fender still, but the plastic badge part was gone. Tough to find 85-86 only Eddie Bauer fender badges. I guess we want what we want!! I'll keep an eye out for a set of those red 78-79 Lariat badges for you.

From my experience with the 80+ pillar badges, nice ones are rare in the JY. For the 3 or 4 lariat ones I have, ive left 12-15 on the truck.

Check out the junkyard finds thread, some guys have access to 78-79 broncos currently. But a lariat will be tough to find from those years.

Did the factory really put b-pillar badges on broncos? I thought that was for xlt lariat f-series only.
I can't speak for anything newer than 79, but I've never seen a 73-79 truck with a B-pillar emblem or a 78/79 Bronco with one. I've only ever seen them on the sides of the cowl or on the front fender. I've also never seen a Lariat emblem on a 70's Ford in person either, so this badge is new to me anyway. lol.

Apparently it's a thing... At least with the 82...

The lariat trim line was only offered 78-86. I can't find any 2nd gen pix with the B pillar Lariat badge but found several bullnose, especially 82s with it.... And the last photo looks like a catalog photo... So I'm gonna have to say yes, Ford put a B pillar Lariat badge on at least the bullnose gen 👍
