Had to take the hood decal

Ordered a Trail Hawk for the wife this past Friday. Didn't really want the hood decal but right now when they try to build one it won't let them order without the decal. Was going to have them remove it when it comes in but now the wife says she wants them to leave it on. I thought he was just not doing something right but the manager came in and said the same thing. When you build one online it's not that way. Just curious, anyone else run across this with the decal?

Thanks, yeah I saw that. Not worried about getting it off if we want. Just thought it was strange they had to put it on in the first place.

Your dealer has no clue what they are doing.
I just ordered a Trailhawk Dec 8th and we had to check the box for the hood decal.
All they had to do was not select it.
They do it right there on the screen.

Yeah, that's my take too. It's actually $$$ extra to put one on, never mind any requirement. Think your dealer messed up somehow.

If you remove it, do it early. The paint ages differently underneath it and it'll eventually make its presence obvious. I rather like mine, though--no hood glare whatsoever between the hump and the decal. I actually can't even see the hood while driving, really, which is kind of cool with the huge windshield there. Nice change from my mirror-finished black truck.

I know, didn't think he knew either. Last couple they had on the lot didn't have the decal. If it comes in with it wife wants to leave it on now. I just never cared for it. If I do have it taken off they will do it before we take delivery.

Yeah. It's a $199 option, so not too bad.
As is said above, it eliminates the glare from the sun on the hood.
My present Latitude has no decal and it has a bunch of glare.
Maybe drive it first before you take the decal off. (If it's a sunny day)
While we were checking off boxes, we hit the black satin wheels also.
Basically, the one I ordered will look just like the ones in the top of
this forum. Should be sweet whenever it gets here next month.
