Side Graphics..

My truck has an auful lot of white & i need something to break up the color while still looking good. Instead of getting a $1500+ paint job, i thought something like this might look cool. Tell me what you think.






Thoughts?

I am all for graphics on the sides, but not those. I actually like Rolldogs graphics on his ranger. Or as mentioned, the camo looks bad A$$....

I was thinking something larger that stands out a little more than a pin-stripe.

The reason i posted this is becuase i havent seen too many other rangers with that type of graphic, i guess thats why you guys dont like it.

Most all tint shops have a vinyl machine, they should be able to make any thing you want

There is a reason the paint will be $1500 + and vynil stick on graphics are only pocket change.

The vinyl that they have out there nowadays, doesnt look half bad.
If you find one that looks badass, then break up that white truck!

I am not a fan of the graphic idea but I think the rocker idea would look real sharp

I know from experiance, if you want something done, do custom paint or even have something airbrushed on, itll be worth it
If you cant find somebody very very good they will not get the graphic laid down in the creases in the body, will bubble, look bad
do paint or airbrush

I think those would look alright on your truck, but I think there are other things that would look better.

I think your truck is much too clean to muddy it up with something so cluttered and, in some respects, tacky.
