    i ordered some inserts for my tailgate and they came on with no instructions. Besides wiping the area down with alcohol does anyone have any tips on installing them. Thanks in advance.

    They are the raised vinyl. I just applied them and it was easy. I just didn't want to mess them up. They came out nice!

    Yeah, but you need that same blue you got on your front emblem, right? Is there a name for that?

    straight to the tailgate? or get the letters and do it to them?

    IMHO colors other than black should be offered

    Nice!
    I'd be all over the American flag but I think it might look odd on quicksand.

    The gray flag might be a good option for me though. :wink:
