    Just some pics of my new truck (new to me) and signs that I just got today. The truck's a '96 F-250.

    NICE TRUCK....looks great shined up. keep it looking nice. it's an eye catcher, and that matters. The signs look a bit small, what are the measurements on it? Mine are 12X24 on a 3/4 ton Dodge Ram, and even mine look small.

    Nice truck, We go with lettering instead. We have most of our fleet lettered. I personally would go with a phone # on the fender, we added that and had much more response!

    Thanks for the nice words guys.

    Scottie, no lift. It's all stock.....for now. I paid right around $10K for the truck, but then paid about another $1K for an extended warrenty.
    It's an XL model 3/4 ton, auto, 351, 5.8L, and had 105K miles on it.

    Expert lawns, the signs are the same size as yours 12"x24". I agree, they look a bit small. There's an even smaller one on the tailgate. 9'x18" is all that would fit on the flat part.
    I do have a big sign on the back of my trailer though, 4'x2'.
    I really only got the truck signs so that when I pull up to someones house for the first time to give an estimate, they can see that it's me.

    landscaper3, I didn't go with vinyl lettering for a couple different reasons, but believe me I would have liked to go that way. Next time around.
    And great looking truck you have there. You take better pictures then me too!

    While I like truck lettering, and obviously one needs it as you may not always have a trailer, I think that trailer lettering is really key. I think people see a trailer with equipment on it and automatically connect it to business. If the trailer is lettered I think it makes a much better connection on a setup rolling down the road. Just my $.02
