    I can't decide what looks better.. unless you guys have another one that might look better? Timberland green is hard to match, I would love to make a dropkick murphys custom one, but I don't think he does custom ones anymore. :(

    Forgive the sloppy photoshop work... :)

    I was worried that the first one might look almost.. "Christmasy" but I don't think it looks bad at all.

    I would get it done in black, which ever design you go with. It looks more subtle and doesn't stick out.

    My opinion, to much red in the first one, and to dark on the other.

    Look farther down the road and what you are going to do with your ride, if you are going to add items, lift, wheels, sliders, bumpers and such.
    Get a color that will blend everything together.

    The way it sits now, and if it was mine I would go maybe grey/silver or a lighter shade of geen, with just a little red outline.

    But that just my two cents worth.

    What about replacing the red with black? Or with green...

    Yea, that is due to my quick crappy photoshop work, it is a pile of skulls.

    I prefer the skulls, but I don't like all the red. It might blend in more when the sticker is actually installed.

    Not to sound like a jerk, but is your truck a TRD? I'd go w/ the black one, either way, but I def. wouldn't put a TRD sticker on a non-TRD truck.

    Although... I've heard the TRD sticker adds at least 5 HP.

    Ok, here it is black..

    That was one concern... but the SR5 selection is limited. Really though, since I got the TSB done... what is the difference between my truck and a TRD now? Some labeling and my tires?

    Hmm, last one, I could go with this more simple design, and ask if he can replace red with black. This way I won't be "pretending" to be TRD either.. not that I care what others think.

    ^ I vote for that one w/ the Black.

    I don't think you care what people think, and it really doesn't bother me, either. I'm just wondering if the guy that buys your truck down the line might notice and think you're being less than honest. The TSB didn't put Bilstein shocks or the locking differential, which (I think) are the major differences.

    It does do the bilstein shocks. But you are right about the locking diff... unless in 09s that was replaced even on the offroads with auto LSD... I don't think it was.

    My bad... you're right about the Bilsteins, of course. Not sure what I was thinking. :eek:

    Either way, I like the last sticker you posted the most of all of them.

    Yea, sometimes simple = awesome.

    I think I have to agree, that last one is nice.
