Car wrapping experiences wanted.

Does anybody have any experience with wrapping their Jeep?
I am considering a matte black wrap of my 2013 JKUS.
I am looking for a long term wrap, all matte black.

Any suggestions on what kind of wrapping product to use?
- Vinyl is what I see the most when I Google this stuff.
- What brand and what quality?
- Any recommendations in the New York area?

Thanks for your input.

Good for on road vehicles. Not good for off road vehicles.

The vinyl damages easier than a Jeep windshield behind a gravel truck.

I have a black Jeep, but I'd like a matte wrap. I won't get it though. Too cost prohibitive.

Thanks but he is 900 miles away .... But maybe I'll try to contact him to see if he is willing to answer a few questions.

I assume that you have done some research to come to that conclusion. What would you have chosen (brand etc) if you could get it?
