Stickers and the art of compromise :-)

Okay, so my informal poll about the stickers on my TJ pretty much said that my wife was right and I was wrong.

Thanks to all of you who participated for your candid (though brutal) opinions.

In response, I have removed all but a few stickers. I kept one on just to cover up the 'Hidden Hitch' decal which I will either remove or, be lazy and just spray paint over it. I held my ground on my "Kiss me I'm Irish" sticker because, you just never know, one day some cute red-haired Irish lass might just take me up on it.

Of course, there was the question...what do I do with my stickers? I think I found a way to keep them out of sight and still salvage my wounded pride by keeping them on the tailgate (see picture 3).

Thanks again for all of your smart-assed....ooops...I mean candid responses!

This is what I did too. Other than my random stickers inside the tailgate, I have one... a Georgia Tech "GT" on the lower left side of my back window.

I don't have a pic, but I'm going with the stickers under the hood.
I'm keeping with actual products installed.

Actual stuff I've installed has stickers under the hood as well.



I have a few on the body still (like from DPG Offroad), but those are mainly on the tire carrier or gas skid.

Your new thuggish WR (Rogers) is from my high school.. He'll be a great one if you can keep him out of jail/in class.
