I've got a stupid little issue

I put the decal from rough country on my windshield last night but today I realized my passenger windshield wiper is going to rub on it when their on. Should I just get a shorter wiper? I have the decal up as far as I could potentially get it.

Shorter wiper honestly? I would just let it be and see if it scraps, once it starts looking bad you should have another sticker ready to go from a different product anyways!

it should be fine, i have a decal on my rear windshield and it gets rubbed on constantly by the back windshield wiper granted its not used a much as the front... but its been on there for like 2.5 years and nothing is wrong with it.

If it starts to wear and you really care about the decal get a shorter one.

How much shorter of a wiper will it need? Maybe you can carefully cut an arc out of the sticker so it clears, heck do both sides then it will look like a uni-brow

Those who say it cannot be done should be quiet and not interrupt those whom are doing it.

You need a windshield extender. That'll move that decal up and out of the way.

Only K&N , magnaflow, amsoil, ect.... type stickers give extra horse power.He will only get extra flex with his sticker... RE sticker = 8% extra flex, RC sticker = 6.2% extra flex, T&T sticker = 10% extra flex ,ect,ect.
