I picked up this tailgate the other day. I'm going to get some body metal and use a hole saw and cut some pieces to patch in the holes, then probably just get it painted instead of messing with it myself. I've got this ford symbol, I think its out of a late 90's nbs 150 grill. I was thinking of putting it on my tailgate. Here's a couple pics with it just laying on there, I'd have to drill holes on both sides to mount it, but it could be done for sure.
What do you think? Bottom right? Middle? Neither? Too big? Too small? I think I kind of like the bottom right.

If you want to do an F250 badge too, then put the Ford emblem in the bottom right and the F250 badge in the bottom left. If you just want the Ford emblem and nothing else, then I'd do it in the middle. That's just a thought
I like factory original badges, or no badges at all. But, do whatever you like, since it's your truck.

I like lower right, but over an inch or two more to the left and maybe down an inch.
