Post Why run Manufacturer's stickers!?!?!

I just saw some stickers on Rock Buggy's rig, and it got me thinkin, WHY!?!?! Don't get me wrong Rock...

If you are being paid to run someone's stickers I say HECK YEA! But until Moser gives me free axles, or K&N provides me with free filter cleaning products, I'm not advertising for them, HELL NO! This goes for anyone who doesn't cut me a good deal.

I will run the stickers of people or products that I have either gotten a great deal on or have done me a favor. ie. River City Differentials, Sean cut me a deal with my axles and I will be more than happy to run his stickers...if he ever FREAKIN gets anymore! <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0"> I've also run RE stickers since I got EXCELLENT CS from them. I just can't see slappin a sticker on your rig just because you are runnin this or that product tho, ya know?

i only have club stickers on mine. I'd rather mine look like a sleeper/pos than a pos with a lot of money (in bolt ons) sunk into it

I have to ask, is this a joke or a typo? Or, better yet, you just love the availability of d35 housings/carriers so you had a custom one built for your front axle.

I have a few stickers on my junk. Only for places that have done me right.

The new rig has only a Howe Racing Radiator sticker because they got me a aluminum radiator for about half anyone else.

I put the stickers on when a vendor does something so good for me I want to recomend that everyone I know go to them.

To just plaster stickers for every vendor you use all over your junk is <IMG SRC="smilies/rainbow.gif" border="0"> Even worse are the guys with a sticker fer junk they don't even have!

Stickers save you from having to paint the rig. Or, it may hold the rig together that is if the stickers are of good quality. LOL

Stickers keep the freshly scraped metal from rusting. But then again so does primer.

My stickers go on my toolbox. I see no reason in running someone else advertisements.

Insayn, I do believe that primer does not protect against rust. it is porous and moisture will go through it and attack the metal as if there was no paint at all. So, the stickers are a much better choice than primer. Nothing like a nice coat of vinyl over your body rash! LOL

I thought that they were for contingency money in racing. Doesn't make much sense for non-competitors.

It does however show everyone what you're running. Like saying steal mine instead of his.

That's how I think about it. I have quite a few stickers on mine but they only get there because I have gotten good customer service or the product is bulletproof. One such example is my Currie shackle hangers. I ripped my front passenger one clear off the frame and I had a huge trip planned that weekend. I called Currie when I got home from my escapades and they overnighted me the parts (at no extra charge) so I could weld ut up and still go on this trip. I think that deserves a spot on my rig.
