Could the plasti-dip potentially melt since I'm in Mississippi? I mean it gets easy 110 or higher in the summers here.
Also, how does the plasti-dip hold up to giving the jeep a good carwash?

Not a chance. I've tested it to more than 190F. (exhaust tip on a catless turbo audi.) Unless you are using a concrete grinder, a car wash isn't going to affect it in any way. It's a lot tougher than most people think. Once it cures, it is very tough.

Thanks man. So, does it hold up well off roading (branches hitting, rocks, etc.)?

Branches, maybe, hitting rocks, nope, you'll need to touch up.

DealerJoe, would be cool to see the doors reversed as well. Do the top and have it stop at the line of the top!! Nice job!

I've thought about that. I'm planning on removing the plasti dip this week. Still like the uniqueness but due to being lazy when waxing last month the edges are hazed and I might have chipped the paint off the lower lip on my door so I need to get to touching that up anyway.
