this doesn't have to do with the lettering itself but your web address is VERY long and unless people have it in front of them it is doubtful they will remember it.

I think that the lettering may be a little to big. It looks a little squished.

I'd consider using the back door for something as well

Love the truck!

Stretch it to cover the rear door, other than that I like the colors and it attracts attention....

Lettering

I had my phone number on the truck for over two years -not one phone call.
It was on the doors and the tailgate -went with my website and it's generated some hits there -where they can get the phone number from the top of the home page. Don't forget your back window -it's above the tailgate.
Don't make your graphics too big. Keep them proportional for the areas where thye will go on the truck.
When you are in traffic and stopped is when most people can read them anyway -or will take the time to do so.

Looks good, do you have to post your DOT# on your truck?
Here in KY any truck tow trailer over 10.000 GVWR with trailer has to have one

I think it looks good. When you do get the website on, stretch it more so you can read it. (I know that's not your address)

I suggest buy a enclosed trailer and letter it up like a rolling billboard. I have had vinyl on my truck and I try to steer away from putting anything in or on my truck. If you want to do your truck I'd do just the doors.
