Note: For the Desert Southwest, subtract 6 months from the durability for exterior signs and for graphics on
fleet vehicles operating predominately in that area. The area includes Arizona, New Mexico, and the desert
areas of California, Nevada, Utah, and Texas. A detailed map is available by request.
For combinations listed as 6 months durable, there is no deduction.
