What yall think

Since i shaved my tailgate i thought it looked a little plain so i added a sticker or overlay to it. So i was wondering what u all think? And dont hold back on saying anything that u think is harsh cause i can take it i have an a-hole for a teacher in my shop classes.

Looks good. If it were me, i would have done without the sticker. Is there going to be a roll pan in the future?

Kind of re-dundent, because you have one that is similar in the window already. Also, something that I would never put on anyways(personal reasons).

hey redneck stone. ever think about just leaving the ford decal on and shaving the other two? IMO that'd be slick. then again... i'm biased

yellowedge01, that look pretty slick man, i like it. that's a helluva lotta stickers on the window tho eh. a roll pan would really set off your back end (don't sticker the rollpan o.O) I'm with you tho man. IMO totally shaved looks too plain

oh, and yellowedge01, while we're on the topic... was the ford emblem you shaved off held on my tape only? or is it also got holes in the tailgate? and is it sunken into the tailgate? Basically... is it a simple removal?

Its held on by tape and two studs that r used to make it level and be aligned with the rest of the tailgate. its an easy shave if u know how to use fiberglass and bondo and then paint it.

Sticker is a little tacky IMO, but to each his own. I thought simplicity was THE reason why you shaved a tailgate handle, but .

checkymvitals: yes i had to reapaint the tail gate cause i had a few other dings and one big dent on the top of the tailgate.here one of these guys might know more. but i did all mine and it only cost me $50

John Moorehead: i shaved it kind of for two reasons seucirty, and the cleaned up look that its gives when done. cause i do plan on putting a roll pan on later on down the road.


This is the roll pan i plan on useing

Thanks man. Didn't think the paint job would cost me that much seeing as it's such an easy spray. I'll just feel like a dink taking it in to have 2 little holes filled...

that roll pan is incredible! i was gonna be buying one of the cheap $100 roll pans with no design on em... but i'm definatly thinkin that one over aftre seeing that beaute!

Looks good on the tailgate, but you may want to remove some of the windows stickers. It looks a little too busy with all the stickers. Maybe just go with the one in the center, and the tailgate one.

Back window is looking "busy"

A black decal might have looked better.

I'm not big on stickers so I'm not a big fan. I love seeing a nice clean tailgate.

The reason I went with the diamond tread is cause i am getting a full tail gate cover and and front box protector and i saw on badkarmas truck a full diamond tread tonneu cover and i am wanting to get one of those and reinforce it and later some kind of rack or backet to haul the bigger tires when i get them. and yes i know my back windows are busy but there is really only two i want to keep on my window.

i think it looks cool. I would've gone with a black one, but either way, it still looks really cool.
