I have been putting it off until I got the setup I wanted together and time to let them have the truck. I haven't went out and got estimates, but what would having a f150 cost? I'm looking at doing the sides and tail gate full color lettering not a wrap.

I'd guess 150-250 depending on exact graphics and company you hired. My truck was 150 and the trailer 500, but I'm in Erie and your in Florida!

For your back window, you can buy plain white static cling letters for inside the glass, and say anything you want. Not particulary visible if you have a dark tint. (In which case vinyl letters on the outside of the glass are best). What is more with static cling you can change letters to say something different depending on the season. Across the top of your windshield, vinyl letters on the outside work nicely, (cannot go on inside due to window tint). Remember that the windshield wipers may scrape across them (usually not much problem). Mine looked nice until my wife helped me scrape ice off the windshield--took off a couple letters. Cost $20 to fix at the sign shop.

Where did you go for your lettering?

I used vinyl on my back glass and the rear side windows on my truck from a company on e-bay. Cost less than $50 for all three. Go to e-bay and under 'search by seller' enter decal delight. Then contact them on their e-mail. I e-mailed them my logo and they were able to duplicate it plus make alterations where I wanted. It was easy to apply and the shipping was quick.

smith, that is exactly what I plan on having done. Only thing I would need done is to have the grass a little higher. It works for you but I have a 1/2 ton 2wd so it would be really low compare to your 3/4 4x4.

a local guy who has the equipment to design and print the vinyl he has a business building top fuel drag cars and is always letting/decorating them so he has the means to provide this service when he is not building or racing...he has done several vehicles and trailers in the area

LOL I have to put about 9 hours in Labs for school a week. I mow every other week about this time of the year. This was my first year. I mow about 50 in the summer and about 25 every other in the winter. Sanger must be German at least you don't get the Singer jokes like myself. I have about 2500 on a Mustang forum it took about 4 years though.

I've slacked in this area for years. This year it gets done. Let me know what you find out. I'll ask the wife if she remembers the quote from our uniform place
