    Default Dakota R/T Decals - Looking for vendor reccomendations

    Just had my black '98 Dakota R/T painted.... Way too many years of looking at rotten clearcoat!

    Looking for recommendations for source for OEM or aftermarket decals to replace the original red door & tailgate decals.

    Thanks in advance,
    Ted

    Thanks - and yes they do have (many) on eBay. I saw that the vendors appear to use a number of different materials, and cover a fairly wide price range. Any chance someone here has first hand experience (ideally, positive) with any of the vendors?

    Thanks!

    Bump. I'm curious also about the quality of the decals on ebay.

    I've used Ebay vendor decals for two Dakotas. Years ago I had a V6 Dakota that I lowered and put fender flares and R/T wheels on. I had one of the vendors change the "5" to a "3", and the super rare 3.9 R/T. I was painting the truck at the time and put them on the base coat, then cleared over them, so I can't give an opinion on their durability since they were under the clear coat. They did seem to have the correct size and font.

    I hit up Ebay again this past summer for a set on my newest R/T. This time the truck's paint was done, so they are sitting on top of the clear coat, like the factory ones. I've had no issues with peeling yet, and it's been through quite a few automated car washes. The only thing I noticed was the total length of the door decals was a little shorter than original. I only know this because I was using my other R/T for measurements to get the decals in the correct location. You can't tell by looking though.

    I can't say every Ebay vendor that makes these decals is gonna be good, but I've used two different vendors and they both seemed to do a good job.
