I get that for sure. Bedside graphics are a little big. Hood graphics are a little more subtle, imo. I don't think either is really over-the-top although matching fuzzy dice hanging from the mirror maybe in order

I personally like both of the graphics but not at $2K. Highly overpriced. Vinyl is cheap buy it yourself or have a business who designs with it every day make you something for a lot cheaper.

I like the bed graphics, but I don't like the price of it. Like others have mentioned, I will probably get something done later at a much cheaper price. 2k for stickers was shocking when I saw it on July 18th when the order banks opened.

Anyone know how these graphics are installed at the factory? Is it part of the assembly line (post paint) or installed by hand or ? The cost must be high not from the material but from the labor, no?

UAW worker sticks them on the side of the truck on the assembly line. Nothing fancy.

Edit: In reality they're no different than the FX4 or 4X4 stickers.

Here is a really good video on how they make F-150s. Its a couple years old, but it shows every single step.

I opt'd out of them, not because of looks because it's just not worth the money. I will get some custom ones done MUCH cheaper.
