    The matte black or gloss black tailgate panel decal is available for any '15 or newer F-150 owner who might be looking to just slightly enhance the rear end appearance of their truck with a very easy peel-and-stick decal over their factory paint. Now, speaking of over their factory paint, if you have scratches or scuffs on that paint, this is a very easy coverup, instead of spending money on repairs. In addition to that, if you're the guy out there doing a complete exterior blackout for your truck, this is a great exterior appearance mod, and it definitely will add to that stealth. This is a very easy installation since it is a peel and stick. So I will give it a one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter, thanks to a very simple, wrinkle-free vinyl. Taking a look a little bit closer at this decal, there really isn't too much going on with it. There's no crazy, flashy designs, or crazy cutouts, or anything like that. It's a very straightforward matte black or gloss black design. The only cutout available is right there in the dead center, which is the Ford oval logo. That way you don't have to worry about taking off that big logo embedded in your tailgate panel. With that said, it goes right around that. But you will have to remove, if you have one, the F-150 logo located in the corner. That is just on with 3M automotive bonding tape. So all you'll need is some kind of heat gun, and maybe even a fishing line to kind of weave it off. From there, it'll apply directly on over top, and you won't have to cut out that oval. Now, this is manufactured right here in-house at AmericanTrucks Graphics, and it's manufactured out of the highest quality, 4 mil, wrapping cast vinyl available today. On top of the vinyl, it's got a very good clearcoat which protects it from the outer elements, and underneath it has an advanced technology. That advanced technology is going to be the wrinkle-free and air bubble-free technology, to make sure it has a wrinkle-free finish on top, making your job a lot easier to apply it. Now, what's really cool about this aside from the appearance is definitely going to be the price. Now, if you're the guy with scratches and scuffs, going to get it repaired can definitely cost you a couple hundred bucks to get a respray or some kind of buffed out scratch. Now, with that said, you could pick this one up for just about $50, which in my opinion is well worth it. This is not a permanent solution, but it does the trick for up to eight years, thanks to the quality vinyl. As far as the install is concerned, the hardest part of the job is going to be getting the F-150 logo off the corner of your tailgate. With that said, it's just going to require a heat gun, and like I said, maybe even a fishing line to kind of weave it off of the vehicle. From there, you'll be able to spray the vehicle down. Make sure you're cleaning it of all dirt and dust, so the vinyl gets a good binding. You'll also wet the back of the vinyl with a soap and water mixture, both the vinyl and the tailgate, and apply it on, centering everything and letting it dry. Once that's taken care of, you can put 3M tape back on the reverse side of the F-150 logo and stick it into place if you'd like. If not, you can simply leave it as a smooth matte black or gloss black finish. Now, that obviously is only going to take you about 30 minutes or so from start to finish, and it definitely gets a one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter. So if you're the owner of a 2015 or newer F-150, I'd recommend checking out the matte black or gloss black finish of the tailgate panel decals, which are available right here at americantrucks.com.

    Impressive Styling Accent. This Matte Black Tailgate Panel Decal is the ideal way to enhance the exterior appearance of your late model F-150. This AmericanTrucks Graphics Decal was specifically designed to accent the sculpted lines of the tailgate. As an added bonus this Decal is an excellent way to cover up any existing scuffs and scratches you may have earned on the road or out on the trail.

    Perfect Fit Guaranteed. AmericanTrucks Graphics vinyl designs have been test fit, refined and tested again on our very own fleet of vehicles to ensure a perfect fit every time.

    Wrapping Cast Vinyl. AmericanTrucks Graphics uses only the highest quality 4 mil Wrapping Cast Vinyl available on today's market. Featuring a built-in protective clear coat layer, this wrapping cast vinyl is designed to last through at least 8 years of harsh outdoor weather. This 4 mil vinyl is far more durable when compared to similar products that were designed with thinner calendared vinyl film, which starts to degrade in just a couple of years.

    Air Release Technology. Air release technology features miniature air channels on the adhesive side of the vinyl that allows air to be easily squeezed out from underneath, providing a bubble-free installation and a smooth wrinkle-free surface.

    Application. This Matte Black AmericanTrucks Graphics Tailgate Panel Accent Decal will fit all 2015 to 2017 Ford F-150s that is not equipped with a Factory Tailgate Applique.

    Why won't it fit a 2018 f150? I thought they were the same tailgate.

    GilbertoF

    • We have not test fitted the Matte Black Tailgate Panel Decal (15-17 w/o Tailgate Applique) to verify fitment with the 2018 F-150's. As soon as we do we will be updating our fitment section to reflect this.

    I punched a hole with my John Deere backhoe right where this panel would go. Right now I just put Duct-tape over it. It looks like if this panel was made of fiberglass or plastic it would perfectly hide the hole. Would this achieve the effect I need to hide this hole without having to pay over $1,000 to purchase a whole new tailgate?

    StephenS

    I Like this decal, however, I would prefer that the cutout around the ford oval would go under this emblem. I dont mind taking the oval off to achieve this. Is there an option of getting this decal without the center cutout?

    which liquid should be used to stick

    JoseaR

    • We suggest using a water and dish detergent mixture to help apply the American Muscle Graphics Matte Black Tailgate Panel Decal to your vehicle. We suggest a few drops of dish detergent with a spray bottle full of water. The decal has an adhesive to the back of it. The water and detergent mixture is to help apply the decal and allows you a little freedom to move it into place before the water drys and sets the decal in place. If you aren't confident in applying it yourself, we suggest taking it to a professional.

      Tailgate panel decal

      Greate product but the sides of the decal need to be longer so you can wrap on the inside of the tailgate. If not they need to trim them so they won't over hange the sides of the tailgate. I had to trim mine with a sharp razor blade.

      Great product

      This is a great product! Absolutely wrinkle free and easy to work with. Use a lot of soapy water on the vehicle and the back side of the vinyl before you start. Do not use a squeegee directly on vinyl wrapping a microfiber towel to squeegee out the excess soapy water.

      Started lifting...

      Looks good and was easy to install as the instructions directed. I was very precise with ensuring it was a very clean surface and the soapy water was applied to the tailgate and the graphic. After smoothing out all bubbles and edges very well I noticed after about 12 hours the bottom had a 6-8” section on the left and right side that was lifting away from the vehicle and could not be reapplied. I guess I’ll leave it for now.

      Tailgate Decal

      The idea is good. The only design problem is that there is no cut out where the F150 logo is. You have to cut that out yourself. The oval for the Ford emblem is already cut out. They really should have made cut outs for both.
