took some pics-should i lose the graphic?

I put on he graphic about a year ago. I have been backed into 3 times sence, my sister hit the driverside rear door, my friend hit the pasenger door, and some guy backed into my bed on the driverside rear. Im not sure if i like the graphic any more now that its all dented up.

Not meaning to jack your thread, but how did you mount your clearance markers on the cab?

Basically I just lined them up there stepped back figured out where they looked good, then made up my own measurements to space them out evenly, made them all the same distance back from the windshield. Marked them out with a sharpie drilled 3 holes per light- 2 for rivets and one for the power. I removed the head liner and wired them in with my parking lights, there on with the headlights and the parking lights.

flossing clothes / shoes on your truck =

anyways, actually like the side graphic, but the cab lights not so much, those should be reserved for super duty's

I'm not a fan of any graphics on the side of cars. I saw a ricer earlier with a ninja on the side of it lol. I don't see why you should lose the Famous logo if you like it, and same goes for the step bars. I like the bars, but I would repaint them.
