    Curious what everyone thought. I just ordered the hood insert and I saw this. I think it looks awesome in the photo, but not sure how it would look on the side of my truck. Look good, or just too much?

    its ok I have seen some that run along the bottom of the doors that looks pretty good but same as you I have been hesitant about how it would actually look on the truck good thing is if you don't like it you can just peel it off

    I think it gives it a cool sport look, but just don't want to go over the top. Plus I think Ford does something similar, although what they do is ugly.

    I think that'd look good myself. I have a buddy that has the near same decal on his F150, I kinda go back and forth on whether I like his or not.

    I'm equally torn. I've wanted to always add something either along the side, or near the back removing the bed side decals and doing a larger image of something related to my nerd craft.

    The silver and black though have a nice contrast that with the hood leading into the sides it could look pretty rad.

    Yeah I like the TSS logos myself. I have mixed feelings about the door graphic though. Part of me thinks it would look great in person and part of me is a little iffy. So why don't we make it into a Nike Swoosh and add some more bedside swag? Sorry couldn't resist....I am closing down photoshop now...

    I’m not a fan.

    But, if you do go with it, what would it look like starting the decal under the 5.7 badge? I think that they look better, just my .02

    If you go with the stripe, I would debadge. Looks to busy IMO. Or make badges chrome again and color match the handles.

    I would agree with the debadging the Truck as well. And starting at a lower point but also shape it to come off your fender flares.

    I was thinking, move it forward. Have it wrap over the hood/cowl at the windshield. Then the 5.7 badge would be on the black......

    I would put it forward a little more.

    Lower position looks better but still looks too arbitrary. No flow.
