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.

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'
