I'm not so much worried about how it will look with the sliding rear window, more so that there is 2 bolt heads sticking out from the handle on the rear slider and wondering if one of those rear window decals would look good or not. I really would like an american flag one but if it's gonna look pretty shotty then tint will have to do. Does everyone know what I'm talkin about? I can get pics of where my concern is but I was wonderin if anyone else did this or how they corrected this problem.

thanks

It might be hard to see, but theres 2 bolts stickin out in the sliding rear window. I was just wondering how the decal would fit over this cuz if it's gonna turn out shitty and crooked cuz of it I'll just have to tint the rear.

I've thought about this with my truck too. Also a sliding rear window. I think it will definately look poopie if you try to cover the 2 nubs. I'm sure someone can come up with a work-around for this but I don't see how without seriously interrupting your vision.

Lemme find a better pic of it, it's my truck with the flag there.

The one I got from JC Whitney, It came in a big roll that I had to cut out to fit the window, which I'm sure you could cut to fit around the bolts.

The link to one similar to mine - http://www.jcwhitney.com/autoparts/P...p-7598/c-10101


A better picture -


You can also see that I cut out some to wrap around the antenna on the glass, which has held up pretty good, except for a small peice I wraped around the part that really sticks out, which had no place to make contact with.

At first I didn't see what a better picture would help since you don't have those 2 nubs. But now I see you have an antenna which would be similar to our problem. You did a great job!

Lone Ranger, while it might be a pain maybe you could cut out a hole around where the nubs would be and stick the cutout on the nubs. It would be a little black around the sides but should still look decent. Also Trail Boss, is the stuff plasic? If so, maybe you could heat it with a blow dryer and gently tuck it all around the nubs?

It came in one big roll, and I just cut some of the left over stuff out to cover that up, which I kinda lined up, but didn't do that good of a job putting it on. You should have no problem putting it on your truck, just cut the flag to go over the black trim if you want, and cut some to fit around the bolts, also, the flag has holes in it, which may or may not line up over the bolts, so you may not have to cut around them.
