FX4 Level II decals.....

Should I put them on my truck or leave it the way it is? I was thinking about doing it like the '06+ Level II's w/ the FX4 on the bed and the Level II on the door......I was also thinking about having IV replace the II in the Level II decal....


(Old pictures I know)

I dont know how good it would look considering ur truck is red and the "F" and the "X" are red as well. look to make sure they are the same color of red first. if they are then it would look good cause they would match. otherwise they would clash and not in a good way.

I vote no, and I really have no reason why, I just don't think it will look good.

I like the FX4 Decals. I'd get a pair myself, but I'm just a 2wd. I was looking at the FX2 decals off the F150's.

I say go with what you want.

your truck looks clean and simple. im not saying that if you put them on it will not look good. just that your truck looks good now. maybe a color matching one would look best...imo.

I want to put some on because my truck looks too plain. I don't even have a 4wd sticker anymore since I got a new tailgate.

I say no. Is your truck an FX4? Then don't put the badges on it. Same goes if you wanted to put Edge stickers on it or Sport, my answer would be the same. I hate it when people mis-badge trucks/cars. It's no better than putting a Type R sticker on something.

Still doesn't make it an FX4... It's an STX with new parts.

It wouldn't look bad, but I think I have to agree with 'no'.

No, it's not a FX4, as pereviously stated, so why ruin a name? If anything custom make some STX stickers for it!

I've often though about putting L2 decals in place of the Off Road decals on mine, but mines an 02 not an 03 so it's pointless.

x4 (?)...

same goes for Austin-something-or-other on here. His vehicle in not a Level II, yet he has the stickers on his truck.

There's a similar problem with this in the reptile community. People create hybrids (breeding 2 different species together) that creates a new "morph" (NO NOT A NEW SPECIES!!!), or in dog terms a mutt. The problem manifests itself further when it comes to selling of these hybrids and their offspring. (Note: the hybrid offspring of some reptiles have been shown to be fertile, unlike that of mammalian hybrids [mules, jennies, liger, tigons, etc]). It manifests in the sense of at times, especially with further breedings, it may become intrinsically difficult to distinguish between a "hybrid" and parently specimens. Example: burmese python X reticulated python = commercially named hybrid "borneo bat-eater". If one decides to breed a borneo bat-eater to a burmese or reticulated python, the resulting offspring maybe be difficult to distinguish from pure burmese pythons or reticulated pythons.

What it boils down to is it becomes the matter of accurate representation. If I want a pure burmese python or reticulated python I want to KNOW I'm paying for exactly that. And I surely don't want to find out that what I thought was pure turned out to just be a masking of something it wasn't.

Kind of like the guy here in town with a red step-side ext cab ranger...looks to be a 99 or 00. In red, white, and blue he has FX4 Level II on his bed. I saw that and went, huh....liar!

A friend of mine with a 98 tacoma trd finds it highly annoying when people put the "trd" sticker on their vehicles that are missing key trd package items (no eletronic locker is the easiest way to spot this on the tacomas) just the same as us with the LII decals feel.

no....
