Default Opinions Welcome!

Hey, just following up on a previous post.. I had discovered that my 09 Ram TRX4 is actually a sport that someone put TRX4 stickers on. Should I remove and risk color fading from the sticker, since I have no idea when it was put on, as the truck has 170xxx kms, or leave them on and be known as the guy who put TRX4 stickers on a sport.. 3rd option, invest in mods such as the skid plates which others have mentioned I could add in, leveling kit etc and make it a little more trail worthy and leave the stickers.
Any and all opinions welcome. It's a rainy day so I've got lots of time to decide for or against removal.

How dose the sticker look on the truck? If you like the appearance of the sticker I would leave it on. If you know that you will add those mods to the truck later on, its one less sticker to add to make it a TRX4 transformation.

I would leave the stickers on also. If they have been on the truck for any length of time, you will almost definitely see where they "ghost" through. I had a Chevy truck that a previous owner had his name painted on the side and after I removed the lettering the image was always visible. Especially to me, since I knew exactly where it was.

I am not a big decal fan, so, I would remove them.
However, I would not be that conserned if it was an actual TRX or not. If you like them keep them.

there are some big changes between trx and sport. the trx has water proofing on all electrical so it wont drown out. duel seals on doors ,it does set higher . so u will have to put a lot of money in it to make it a trx4. the offroad part is what makes it the trx4 so if u leave the stickers on and sell it as such ,it will not be
a true offroad trx4 .

IMHO, if you like them leave them on because the difference will be noticeable after the length of time they have been on.

That's actually quite cool about the water proofing and seals, will probably leave the stickers on for the sake of fading, and just slowly work away at making it be able to survive what a trx could
