google plasti dip fail.. doesnt come off too easy and if you use a pressure washer it will come off.. but too high of a pressure washer and it can take paint with it

Looks great!
The fact that it supposedly comes off so easy is why I did not go with it. I just bedlined my Jeep and it looks about the same, flat black and just a little gritty which is what I wanted. My Jeep was black to begin with and full of scratches so any change was good with me.
I did however aerosol plasti-dip my mirrors. Truthfully the plasti-dip job on my mirrors does not look like it will come off easily with regular use and that's good with me.

Solved a small problem for me.

My Wrangler Unlimited Sport (Gecko Pearl) is on order and being built.
Never owned a Jeep before, but I knew that when I got one I would want black wheels.
Problem is, don't want to spend the money just yet and would rather wait until next year and get some 35s to go with it.

Just ordered from Ace and for less than 50 bucks I can black out the stock wheels.
Thanks for the post; this will be a great help.

you guys think this would act as a scratch resistant material on the trail? We go through a lot of heavy brush and i get a lot of scratches. I've looking for something to cover the paint in certain areas.

Mines white and has a few paint chips and just looks dull overall so hopefully this will make it look a bit better, i always liked red and yellow for jeeps, not a huge fan of white like mine is now unless there was a big contrast with black, white paint but black wheels and trim would look amazing. So ya not sure what color i want yet lol

Might work...but depending on the heavy brush, if it tears through it may start ripping it off in pieces. You'll have to nickname your Jeep Shaggy after you get done from it looking more like shag carpet...

Here's a crappy cell pic. I'm gonna finish it tomorrow and take some better quality pics with my digital camera.
I need to touch up the hood because it was the first thing I did and I applied it too thick in a couple of spots. I been using rattlecan bedliner for a few years and it's tough as nails. Did my interior a few years back.
Hell, I was bored at work the other day and even bedlined my Aluma-wallet

oh and by the way anyone who is doing this order from dipyourcar.com great web page and great prices so for my jeep i only needed about 10 to 12 cans i bout 15 though to play it on the safe side im not done yet so when im done ill have more pictures. and so for anyone else out there deciding to do this listen up...

first off for two door jeeps get 15 cans to play it safe. and for the four door jeeps i would get atleast 20 -22 just to play it safe nothing wrong with haveing a few extra cans laying around bc if it does scratch then u can just paint right over it and it looks like new. i love it
