New paint job, to decal or not

I just got my white jeep painted red. When it was white it had pinstriping on the hood and the word Wrangler. It also had some striping down the side/door quarter panel area all in tan, along with the usual Jeep stuff.
I am trying to decide whether to put something similar on their now that it is red. They have tons of choices on e-bay. Has anybody ever used these aftermarket decals. Do they go on fairly easy, no bubbles. Are they tough to put on straight. I don't want to mess up a new paint job by putting on and then having to remove decalling. I can't quite decide whether it will look better with decals or clean.

I'd go with the clean look. No decals.

Life is tough enough already, but it's even tougher when you're stupid

I have checkered flag decals on the sides of my hood, I got them from As far as pinstriping goes I am not a big fan of it. My Jeep originally had pinstriping but is since gone after my Jeep was repainted.

I've never been a decal fan. I took off all my decals except the word Jeep. Just sayin'
