    Got a question about putting signs or decals on your company truck for advertising. Do you guys think having decals on both sides of the truck is just enough or, would you put another decal on the back tailgate for people to see that are behind you? Also, if you have any other helpful hints about advertising on your company truck. Thanks.

    I suggest vinyl signs on the doors and if you don't have a headache rack, get something done to the back window, that looks pretty classy. Maybe a window banner on the top of the windshield, I've seen that done before and it's pretty sweet looking. The more you put your name out, the better the chances of getting noticed.

    It does not cost that much more to sticker all the way around.

    I haven't noticed much, if any added "advertising" value, as far as calls since I put signs on my truck. But, I do hear a lot of, "I see your trucks all over town" I mainly did this for DOT compliance, but it does look more professional. If I could I would probably get at least a magnet done for my tailgate, but my personal pickup is a 96 Ford 250 PSD, and it has that stupid brushed aluminum insert in the tailgate. My other work trucks, (97 F350 flatbed, 84 F250 flatbed) are getting the doors done, but obviously have no tailgate. Whenever I get a new(er) truck, (F250 PSD 4 door short bed) I'm going to get my logo vinyled under the back window of my 96 supercab, and my phone number in like 5" letters down the top of the bedside. I second the window banner idea, those look good, but headache racks stop me from doing this.

    i have them on my truck and trailer so customers see us out there and notice the name. i really dont think ive ever got a call from the truck but when people look it the paper they might recognize the name.

    I have to ask why do you call it a headache rack?

    Because that is what it is called. The front part of a flatbed that protectst he back window, or you can get them to bolt on top of the bed. Most have bars across the middle, so a window sticker won't be visible.

    We have our boards on side of the box, and the name on the bug shield (F350, F450 and F550). Boards have our name, phone number, P.O. Box number, location, and "since 1980" on it. The doors have our DOT numbers and truck numbers on them
