    I'm not really feeling the Battle Born theme, if I saw it on the highway my 1st thought would be 'wth is that about' :notsure:, I've lived here 25yrs and wouldn't have thought to use that phrase.

    A forum of local dune riders had stickers made up and they were easy to spot just driving by...if you saw someone stranded on the road and saw that sticker you would stop to help without thinking twice..they were also good for calling someone out on the forum if they were driving/acting like a d!ck.
    Here is their sticker for an example... cause I'm far from creative...the quad symbol in the middle was also a 2 wheeler, sandrail and side by side, so you could pick which ever was specific to you...They also came in different sizes starting from about 5" across.

    Anyway...I think colored stickers stand out more then the white stickers that are all over...but I don't put stickers on my truck so I should just shut up :).

    This is exactly the reason I think it would be cool to do it. No one really ever thinks about "Battle Born", and if they looked at it, as you said, they would say "what's that about?" I don't want to do anything boring or generic, and I'm not really into anything colored, especially since my truck is white on black. I think a monochromatic look is much more clean. Anybody who took history in school should know what Battle Born means in reference to Nevada. However, if I can get enough people on board for this, and they think that "Battle Born" is totally lame, I'll change it something else :D

    So I think I have narrowed down our choices here. I have added a poll to the thread for voting. We may go with more than one of these, or none if the majority is against this idea. Here are the choices. (I changed the M16 one and got rid of the banner). This is what the decals are going to look like on your back window.

    I like the first one. Maybe add the year that NV was "born" just above the SO. NV.

    So I just decided the poll was a mistake. Not only will it take forever to get votes, but other people that are not from Vegas can vote. Also, those last two options were not needed; they are just going to bring negativity to this idea. If people don't want one, they don't have to have one.

    So, this is what I want to do: if you want one of these decals, or a variation thereof, PM me. I am going to get them made after I get some messages. Also, I will cover the costs as long as it doesn't get out of hand i.e. more than 10 people order one.

    I don't really think that would catch my eye; kind of blasé IMO. Then again, I don't want to be too flashy. I don't know. I think we all need to just get on board with one design and those who want to rock it can.

    Eh...I think those who went to school in NV would get the Battle Born, but not people from other states so much and most people here didn't grow up here, I've been here 25yrs....I don't know the slogan for many other states and I hate history.
    Yup, I'd definately say 'what's that about', (I did when I saw this thread) but then there isn't any way to answer that question...maybe the Tacoma behind you on the highway will pull up next to you and yell through the window "WTH is that" ;).

    White/Black stickers=boring and generic...just my opinion since you asked.

    But since you are making them and giving them out to those who want it...Have fun and do what you want...:D

    If people want colored decals, I definitely would consider it.

    However, at this point, I don't know if I am going to get everyone on the same page for this thing. Everybody who has posted has had pretty different ideas about what this decal should look like. That's why I said anyone who wants one of the decals I posted can PM me.

    I know it's kinda discouraging. Oh well. I don't know what I can really take away from the poll, but there seems to be enough interest to get this off the ground just based on that and the comments here. Of course there's some opposition, but I don't give a crap about that. I should of never included those other options.

    SO HERE'S THE BOTTOM LINE: IF YOU WANT ONE OF THE CURRENT DESIGNS, PM ME DUDES!!! THEY'RE FREE (for now)! We can get a list together and put then all on at the next meet!

    I'm great, it's dune season I couldn't be happier ;). Hope married life is treating you well.

    Yup.. that rail, belongs to a friend, is finally finished and has been out to the dunes a couple times, so now it just needs some mechanical work. Here is a shot of it last trip

    Thanks, but I've decided not to make them. Wasn't able to really get anybody behind the idea. But feel free to take one of the designs off the thread and get it printed :D
