How was the seven mile run yesterday?
A member on here did them for me custom. I TD him what I wanted, went through several iterations and came up with that. His name is teamhypoxia and I traded him some add a leafs for them!
Thanks for the compliment.

Sevenmile was great. Getting rougher every time I go up

Yeah I aired down to about 15psi and the tire flexed that much, even with them being E rated. Hope I didn't go down too low. I didn't get any slices or anything though

Yeah but look at them. There is a better pic of how much the sidewall mashed down on the CO trip reports thread.

Good point, it felt good. Lost a bunch of clearance but since I finally had both skids and sliders it was no biggie

The stickers definitely look good in the pictures.

If the bubbles are small, you could try hitting them with a heat gun (sparingly) or your wife's hair dryer. The sun may even take care of them for you.

Worst case scenario, we make you another one and try again.

Thanks. They were hard to apply to where there were No bubbles but they look great from a short distance. I will give the Moab sun a chance to bake some of the bubbles out and see what I want to do after that. I think they loom cool too. Thanks Eric for talking my idea and making it happen.

Thank you very much. I have had a blast building this truck.
A local guy who does a lot of decal work for moto-x guys made them as a trade for some aal. His username is teamhypoxia but real name is Eric. I urged him to start making decals as a vendor in TW, we'll see if he tries to do that but you could probably pm him to see if he would make you some.

One trick I sometimes use when applying tricky decals (especially with compound curves) is water.
It seems weird, but if you spray the surface and/or the sticker liberally with water it doesn't affect the sticky, but it won't stick as much while the water is there. Depending on the sticker, this can let you remove and reapply if necessary (probably not the thin bedside decals as they'd likely tear. When the sticker is in place, you just squeegee out the water and you're golden!

I thought about that after, if these get bad over time I will redo them like that. Did you save the file?
