I was thinking that it would be something the manufacturer might do to brand the truck, not us ‘Joes’. You are right about laser engraving. What about water jet? I know they can be used to cut but can they be used to etch?I think the main issue with this would be - how do you do it safely? To etch steel, you need a Class 4 laser. There are very tight safety regulations with Class 4 lasers. Those things will blind you faster than a Red Ryder BB Gun. Even a reflected beam off a surface can ruin your life. They must be in a no light leak enclosure.
I assume the tailgate and doors of the CT can be removed so you can probably get those done somewhere, but the rest of the truck? I don’t see someone building a drive-in laser etcher where you can park the entire vehicle in a booth and have this done.
