Im still debating on to either leave it on take it off... Im leaning towards taking it off, but Im worried that It might be too late. By late I mean, the paint might be faded a little already or something. Because I dont know how long it was on the dealers lot and being that Im in phoenix and it being sunny and extremely hot all summer.
I only bought it about a month-month and a half ago, thats really not the concern. Its just the how long it might of been on the lot out in the sun.
Do yall think it would be fine? or should I play it safe and just keep it on?
My pealed off easily after 3 months from PDI when it came in. Took my time and sealed the area under with paint sealant immediately. Added bodyside moldings and splash guards to dress it up as it looks plain without anything.
I peeled off my Pro4X stickers after the vehicle was 6 months or so old and the stickers mostly peeled off ok. There was no faded paint but one decal did leave a bit of sticky on the paint which was easy enough to remove.
As to whether you should take your Frontier decals off - I personally can't stand those things but then I have been known to wear brown socks with gray slacks so what do I know

i know its not popular but i like the decal. it designates the package you bought in addition to the 18" rims and the smoked grill. its just something a little different. its not really a selling point to me, but if it were on the truck when i bought it, i would leave it on honestly. course...id never buy the SA package anyway because i want the utility package..but wouldnt mind the rims, grill and sticker too if it were available with the utility.
I think the grey decal on black looks good. It's not to overbearing or eye popping like on the blue trucks so I'd probably leave it if it were my truck. I think it looks better than those with the giant Chevrolet or Honda sticker across the windshield.
Since the original question does not really ask for an opinion of weather the decals look good on the truck or not, here is a more unbiased answer. The sun, even in Arizona will not affedt the paint to the degree of fade that quickly to worry about any fade at this point. While it is harsh, it does take years to do any damage. Also, paints used now do have some degree of UV protection added to it to help prevent this issue.
If you don't like the looks of the decals on there, by all means remove them. weather you seal the paint underneath is a matter of opinion, it is after all the same paint and clear coat under the decals as the rest of the truck.
