So I did some truck advertising today. I got a quote for having graphics done and it was $3,000 so I figured screw that I will just get door magnets, then I figured I would do it the cheepo way and get lettering and do it myself. I also put the phone number on the back of the tractor between the LED arrows so people can clearly see it while I am hauling it down the road.

Simple, effective and to the point. I think that will work.

I payed that for 2 signs and 1 vinyl on my trailer. I'm sure you can get vinyl for about $100 to $200 easy

That is great, something is better than nothing, If you lived closer I would do your vinyl free.

Good Job!

Lettering looks great! Nice job!

What is that on your roof? a flashing light? Great for lawn emergencies! lol seriously, good idea for when you are on the side of the road - especialy in rural areas

Thanks for the comments. Thats a rotating amber light. I put it there the day after my truck nearly got rear ended parked in front of a clients house. The truck came from the county so the switch and wire for the light bar was already there. I get about 3 hours out of the light before my battery starts to hurt. I am in the works of looking for a green lens for it.

I can see where this would get some attention. It may even be worth a parking ticket to get good visability LOL. Not a handicap spot though-bad publicity

Technically its not legal for me to have the light on there while driving but I hardwired and mounted it and thus far I have not had any problems with the boys in blue. It kinda helps that I know most of them.
