You'd be surprised how much you'll like it without any decal on at all. I took my Rubicon stickers off and was going to change out the color, but liked it so much better plain, I left it that way.

I have a silver rubicon, so I replaced my decals with a silver decal to give it a ghosted effect. I love the look in person. Here are a few pics.

Love how you all give opinions, yet no one answered the question.

Not sure if those are them or not, but if you go to pixal decals he can get yoy exactly what you need/want. He did custom for me and couldnt be happier

That Rubicon decal is from a decal company so it might not be the exact size as the original. I would remove the current decal before installing the new. It would be extra tall with two stacked and a car wash or pressure washer might peel it up.

Put a line of blue painters tape along the factory decals, then peel them with a heat gun. Now you will have a guide for the new decals.
