    Hey guys, thought I would throw a little review up to aid anyone looking for raised letters for their tailgate stamping.

    At first I was trying to find an alternative, I really did not want to spend $49.99 on 6 letters. But I definitely wanted raised/embossed letters for the 3d look and I must say these are top notch. The adhesive is very strong and sticky, I used a heat gun just to warm the panel and decal right before I stuck it on. They lined up perfect and they were the perfect size to fill in the flat portion of the stamping. The letters are thick, not hard but not flimsy and they hold their shape.

    Would definitely purchase again if somebody rear-ended my tailgate!

    and also on Ebay

    I actually almost ordered them but refused to because there were no close up and installed pictures of them showing detail. The 3d decals are really easy to install because they are the exact shape of the flat portion of the stamp, so you cant overlap where the angled portion of the letters is like you could with a regular vinyl sticker.

    Yeah mine are exactly installed like that and very easy peel and stick with no way to screw it up IMO but not raised / domed. Just flat shiny black. :thumbsup: Whatever they used to cut 'em left behind some residual adhesive that cleaned up after this was taken.
