Gumbys69 That xpel stuff is amazing! I've seen it on a few cars and one guy took a wire brush to it and it fixed itself, really weird stuff!

MANGOJK15 When my Altitude arrives in the coming weeks I am having Xpel Stealth applied to the grille to protect the matte black paint. In addition, I am going to have Xpel Ultimate applied to the entire hood, fenders, windshield surrounds, bumper inserts, door cups, Trucklites, and fog lights. Xpel Stealth is designed to protect matte paint or give standard clear coat paint a matte finish while maintaining the original color. Xpel Ultimate is a clear, self-healing film with no matte properties. Both Ultimate and Stealth provide excellent protection to any vehicle.

blackandlime My carbon wrap was made by 3m.

blackandlime Carbon fiber wraps work great and very durable. I had it on for over a year on my hood to give it a two tone color look and it did great. When I wanted a change all I had to do was heat it a little with a hair dryer and it peeled right off with on marks or wear on the paint. Great stuff.

there are no "edges" each panel is one piece and wrapped or tucked to where you dont see edges.

vinyl wraps get expensive, plastidip really isnt that much maybe $300 to do the whole thing including the sprayer. best thing about that is if you want to change the color just pull it off

300 is a bit much if you have to do it over and over...

so is the 1500.00

the trailskinz are 250... and come off and go back on...or even better custom ones... starting at 189.

If you like your color and just want to protect it, the clear film in the thread referenced may be for you.

If you like the idea of a color change, or a matte finish, some of the other options may be more appropriate.

I don't recall the price, but any of these products will run you a pretty penny for sure. But if you value the finish of your paint above all else, this may be for you.

If you do anything, be sure to post pics. We love pics.
HEY thats my thread! and yes I do love the xpel wrap. wanted to be reckless with the truck but am a lunatic about the black paint. The xpel wrap is worth the cost. mine is 16 months old and its still the best mod on my truck. (even thou no one knows its there but me)

you can see a full review on facebook.com/jeeplab

where we talk about really putting it to the test in moab.

JackedUpMedic I originally wanted an Orange Crush JKU, but since production ended on them late last year, and the ones I CAN find are either out of my price range or loaded with stuff I don't want. I ended up ordering a white JKU 6speed (which I'm currently "patiently" awaiting) and plan to do the vinyl wrap. Both for color and for the added protection (even if it's a little bit). Plus when I get bored I can just remove it, keep it white or do another color.

After researching this for a while (did I mention I'm "patiently" waiting?) I came across this site http://www.metrorestyling.com/3M-Sco...80-s/16764.htm which sells the vinyl in 5 foot rolls by max of 70 feet. I ordered two 1'x5' rolls (orange and matte green) for about $18 shipped each to compare and test. I actually even wrapped my laptop in the orange.

It's tedious to do it yourself but from estimates I should be able to do the whole jeep for about $450 in materials + time and patience. Or you can pay to get it done for anywhere from $1500-$2000.


I was also looking into Plasti Dip and bought some in black and blaze orange for tests. I think I'm just going to be using it for accents though.

WhiskeyMike I saw an ad on the TV show Extreme 4x4 Saturday for 3M film that was released for DIY. Might want to look at that. I've thought about doing the front facing things.
