I swear mine is the only truck in town with a pinstripe. Have seen a couple newer GM trucks with pinstripe but not one other Ford or Dodge with any. I think a pinstripe lends a finished look to certain vehicles, but I might simply be old school with that.

I've yet to see another F150 with this pinstripe.

I have a 98 Ford ranger with pinstripes and i think it looks much better than rangers without.

Your truck looks good with pinstripes and some don't. I think it's according to the color of the truck.

Normally I say no, but they are growing on me. Plus it adds to the look,

Think it depends on the color too...

I would say it's very old school but if you like it thats all that counts. It looks great on your truck.

No pinstripes on my truck. And I didn't want any.

If you like yours, that's all that matters.

Mine has some, but I added them. They're not factory.

I think in the old days they didn't have all of the body lines they have today. Needed pinstripes to break up the broad flat surfaces. Now the panels have enough "character" on their own.

Bigtime old school, but that doesn't mean they can't be cool.

Ripped the old school Frontier a new one but we like pinstripes... go figure.

That would have come off before I took delivery as well as any dealer stickers.

Remember when it was all the rage to get those graphics applied to the sides of new trucks? sick

Dealer emblem yes (already gone), stripe and tail gate lettering, nope lol. That is what made it appeal to me on the lot among others w/ same trim level and equipment. Maybe one reason I liked it on this particular truck is the lack of chrome i.e. the general mono chromatic theme, plus the squared off boxy design lines of the Ford F-series (which also attracted me).

My dad had some graphics on his 1993 Toyota pickup.
