    Yes!!! Its free advertising any time. Unless you dont want people to see it then get magnets and you can put them on and take them off at will.

    I think a lettered truck shows pride and professionalism in your business.
    And great exposer for very little money.

    I would letter mine. I used to use magnet, but i left them on for an extended time and the paint got screwed up. At least with the decals a heat gun and some adhesive remover and there gone. just my 2 cents

    If you are going to go vinyl lettering, het a really nice rear window graphic is something like a chrome color that really stick out and still looks good. Nothing too big, maybe just 1/3 of the rear window or smaller.

    Letter it up. No mags. Unless you run an ad 52 weeks a year in the local paper and have a big add in the phone book your truck is 90% of your advertising. A good looking truck lettered up will get the calls faster than an old junker with the tail pipe falling off with a magnet on it.
