Default I have an idea but need some feedback

I've been thinking these past couple days about my truck, and today gave me a little more confidence since I visited the local car audio and other customization store today and was fairly impressed with their inventory and how they do business. So here is my idea, do you think this store would give me discounts or get me hook ups if I offer to advertise their business on my truck? maybe something like a windshield sticker and a rear glass sticker. Today the guy who owns the place was admiring my truck so that makes me start to think that maybe this is a good idea, especially because their shop is downtown and most of their business is people who want big rims and 3 15" subs, but this shop also installs lift kits, winches, tires, and wheels. I was thinking since my truck is an off road rig I may be able to pull some customers who would have never thought to go downtown to get their off roading and car audio needs. Its just an idea not sure if places like that would do something like that or if I'm dreaming. Let me know what you guys think

It all depends on how receptive the owners are. It is not unheard of for places to do things like that, but it all starts with talking with them.

Just remember Benny. I don't know where you live, but where I am window stickers mean you should get theft and vandalism on your truck.

People steal from anything with a audio sticker on because they realize a deal has been generally made which has costed a fair bit of money. Making a easy cash in for them.


I'm thinking it's a bad idea. just save your money and do a good, clean install with no steal me stickers.

I agree. What's the worst that could happen, no discounted price? All they can do is say no.

If you have the shop logo on your truck they may just assume it's a work truck... If you start plastering ALPINE stickers all over your windows you'll be asking for it though.
