My try @ Hood Decals

Hoping for opinions on if I need more digits on my hood, my first thought was that it is too short and needs a least two more digits.
What do you folks think?

Looks good to me. I've got something similar if you check out my profile pics.

Looks pretty good as is to me. Could they be a bit longer? Sure. But I would just leave it as is if it were me.

On a side note. Here are mine. So I'm quite found of yours. And nice choice of wheels as well.

Don't listen to him, oak. Notice he's got the same amount of #'s as you? He just wants you to add more so that yours will be an embarrassing "too much."

Looks awesome just like it is.

That looks really good. I have done similar decals on my hood. If you really wanted to I guess you could add the good olde USA to either side, might mess up centering though maybe above.

Blackberry? Vintage.

You can start a fire with a piece of coarse rope and a rounded stone, you know.

Damn you sure are busting my chops today.

Actually, when I had Don make mine, I had him extend them out several different times. Seems like I settled on 21" long and .75" tall for the letters and 1.25" for the star. At first they were a bit shorter than the OPs.

The funny thing about my jeep is that there is a few people that think that it is a special edition from jeep. Sort of the reason I want the hood stickers, to screw with people!
Thanks for the comments

I have a 2012 deep cherry red- in my profile pic. What is you opinion about me doing the black star on the hood and the black lettering on the side? I am a USAF vet- I was thinking something like:

USAF 89-93 RAB

This would stand for my branch, date of service, and Ramstein Air Base.

What do you think?

LMH, You should personalize it to your liking. It makes it your Jeep. Great idea...

That is hilarious. Would be even better if people went out searching for that "special edition"!!! Be safe.

When you order these (i assume from pixel) what do you order? is this a special design or would you just order a rubicon sticker and replace it with your own type?
