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.


If you're saying what I think you are, we don't like it because it looks like it'll turn out ugly.


I agree, GT racing stripes might look sweet

If you have a FastSigns Shop there, you can get all your vinyls and graphics for vehicles done there! My Parents were Owner Operator Drivers for FedEx Custom Critical and there Kenworth Truck had it done there, and it looked pretty freakin sweet! Oh, something like a 10 year warranty too!

I like it, Custom paint could be a little better with a similar style that is on the graphic.

Maybe get that look of metal painted on the bottom and have paint peeling away from it.

It looks ok, but m50b06 is right, the vinyl will probably start to peel off within a year or two and once it starts, it will look bad. And if the shop you choose to put it on has some 16 year old new guy doing it, you won't be happy. Airbrush would probably be the best but it is more costly. Honestly, I like the clean white look, expecially after you get it muddy. But the important thing is that you are happy with the outcome, thats all that matters.

Well, I saw if you like it try it. Its just vinyl, so if its ghey you can always take it off, a paint job however would be there for a while.

Its not the vinyl coming off that you have to worry about
For some reason the graphics are very hard to have pressed into the creases on the side of the truck, im sure you all know what im talking about, halfway down their is a crease in the truck for looks, runs the lenght of the truck, well i have had two companys try to install graphics on the truck, each company did it 3 times, and still they can not get the graphics to seat in the crease, so they bubble, look bad and then pull the rest of the graphic out. looks horrible
If you can miss the crease then do vinyl, but if you are going through the crease do not do vinyl, you will regret it, maybe not immediatly, but you will
Save yourself the money and just go for the paint-or air brush, i was quoted about $750 to do air brush, strip the clear coat, airbrush design and put new clear coat on
Vinyls get ya for about $300 or $400

Sambob117 found some nice rocker panel decals from a guy on ebay! It would do something to break up all the white depending on what color you get.

I got a black decal on my domed hood from the local ford dealer installed for $35. I like it a lot. Also I got a ford pinstripe kit from walmart and rapped it all around the truck. The pinstripe is small but every detail counts!

Hope this helps, pics of my hood decal on my profile, message me for more pics.

Get it painted. Find a local airbrush artist that can do custom graphics. It will look 100x better and plus you can add stuff to it if you want. If you put the vinyl on to be cheap, it will look cheap. With a truck that nice, I would want graphics that made it over the top.
