Suoer Duty Tailgate Lettering - Opinions

Hi everyone, My name is Ray and I'm VERY new to anything Diesel. My 08 F350 King Ranch is my first ever Diesel. My previous truck was an 02 Excursion V10.
I want to put lettering in the tailgate depressions. My question, opinion wise, do I go with precision cut VINYL lettering or precision cut Stainless Steel lettering.?

Thanks in advance....

Either one is tacky if you ask me.

i like them, depends on what color your truck is. my truck is black, went with metallic, high reflective lettering on tailgate and i think black on dash.

Thanks for the positive response. I have a Dark Blue Pearl Metallic King Ranch F350. I was thinking either the color to match the bottom of the truck (a sort of golden tan, Pueblo Gold I believe). OR Chrome. I'm going with the Chrome on the Dash lettering to Match all of the Chrome Bezels around the Dash and Vents. I seen pictures and like the look.

Ok since you didn't ask what We thought of highlighting the ginormous SUPERDUTY stamp in the tailgate I won't say what I really think

but you did ask about what type of letters to go with

I would go with Dark Blue Pearl Metallic precision cut vinyl letters

I'd leave it or go chrome. Chrome looks good on a dark truck, better if you got wheels to match. I can't stand that stupid tan Ford likes to put on the rockers. I Rhino-lined mine.

I think they look great! I'm going to go with the stainless lettering for the glove box too. It will match all the chrome in the cab.

Are the 'Black' letters on the front Chrome grill 'Exactly' the same size as the tailgate??
