    Yes, it’s a 2012 and bought it back in March with just under 200k and ABS lights on and won’t shift into 4x4. Then in June he sent a spider gear through the rear cover. IMG_0368.jpg IMG_9493.jpg

    Ya. It's better to reuse than to recycle.
    That's what I used in the tail light housing.

    I use them in my tool box drawers so the tools don't slide around.
    They're bigger than 12x24. More like 18x36 inch.

    Not really a sale, but it is a good reminder to get the new sticker and I suppose it would make a decent gift for the right person on your list.

    I really wish they just used your license plate. I get a Michigan and Wisconsin sticker every year and this upcoming year I'll probably get a Minnesota one too, windshield is going to be coated lol

    I agree! Does anyone have a good method for removing the old stickers?

    When I got my windshield replaced Safelite actually transferred them to the new windshield so you'll have to ask them how they do it lol

    Yeah, getting a new windshield is the bad financial advice way to do it I suppose!

    Removing old stickers = use a razor blade scraper tool like this: https://www.lislecorp.com/specialty-tools/razor-blade-scraper

    Never having to do that again = Buy some Sticker Shield in the checkout aisles at Menards or wherever for like $2. It has a removable adhesive. Sticker goes on Sticker Shield, then on your windshield. Next year just peel it off. Done.

    I've never heard of this Sticker Shield before, but was planning on a Menard's stop after work today. I look for it. Thanks!

    No problemo! I only learned of it a year ago but I'll never go back now. Also for removing old sticker adhesive a little Goo Gone and elbow grease, then some Windex to clean off the remaining Goo Gone should get you back to normal. Cleaning off any remaining Goo Gone is critical to making anything else stick and not having a big greasy mess.

    This is why I love the forums, thank you for sharing. It happens to be a lightning deal right now on Amazon so I just bought it
