    Got the extended shock conversion completed using the Doetsch Shocks. They do not come with any markings on them and have a sticker for it. My ricer neighbor likes the stickers (suprise) my wife's sure about it and I can go with or without.

    Wadda U think...too much bling

    Gots to. They add horsepower. I've done some highly unscientific calculations and with all the stickers on my truck, I'm putting down about 650hp at the rear wheels. Now if I could put on my BFG fender stickers, I can jack that up to about 1000hp easily /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I don't have a problem with stickers in general, I use em myself. I have a problem with people that have stickers for stuff that they do not even have installed. The first krawler I see with a NOS sticker anywhere on it will have it's euro taillight kicked in. Use the sticker but if you do make sure you have the item installed and you will not be bling bling.

    4x4 org stickers go on the truck. Parts stickers go on the tool box, trash can, beer fridge, work bench, ect. Friend of mine once said "stickers just let the theives know which car to steal."

    I told a kid who works for me the same thing. He had a big "Alpine" sticker across the windsheild of his truck with a zillion dollar stereo inside.
    He came to work later, cryin the blues one day telling me his stereo/cds had been ripped off when he left his rig parked overnight at an apartment complex.
    Sometimes it dont pay to advertise.
    Even though I dont like stickers I made an exception for these:

    I agree, after putting several stickers on my truck I noticed a huge difference in performance plus it protects my paint. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I have some CK5 stickers coming in the mail and they are going on the truck. Stickers promotiong police charities can be a good idea, got me out of a ticket once. The only other sticker I have on the truck is one from Motorist Assist that I left on after they stopped to check on my truck while I was getting gas. It seems the "E" on the guage means you are out of gas. Whouda Thunk It??

    All other stickers that came with parts are on my toolboxes.

    [/ QUOTE ] Umm you better not since sooner or later i will probably put Nitrous on my K5. I will actually put it on though, I don't put a sticker on till I actually install the product. I hate seeing Summit Racing and Jegs stickers, umm wow you saved money and bought from a place everyone and their grandfather knows.

    or with cheap shocks when the rest of the shock rusts and the sticker peeled off revealing one not nasty spot.
