    They stay on, never heard of them pealing off unless they didn't clean their tailgate.

    You can get them on eBay for about $5 a set now, they're cheap. Get two sets in case you screw up install.

    I have had these same ones on for over a year now. No issues. I like these better than the vinyl becasue they are raised and nice 3D look.

    Decals like those are one of the first things I did to mine.

    I’ve been selling premium cast vinyl decal inserts to TW members since November 2015. Mine will last as long as you own your Tacoma and stand behind that with a lifetime warranty.

    You can find them at TVDVinylDecals.com.

    Ha thanks! But after all the responses, I may buy from a vendor posting on the forums. I like to support them when possible! I appreciate the offer though!

    No, vinyl decals are not raised letters. No sure why some people refer to the raised letters as decals.

    I'm interested in the raised letters...I ended up ordering them from Tukskinz this morning. I'll post some pics once I get them installed.

    I have these, and they've been on the truck for two months now without issue. Clean thoroughly with alcohol before application to remove the wax etc. The raised look is a nice touch in my opinion.

    I have vinyl ones, I washed the truck, then cleaned with vinegar and alcohol. Decals have been on for about 19 months and still going strong.
