here is one i found the other day for sale. Camo Jeep
i was looking to do a camo wrap on my TJ also but ended up talking my self out of it. The thing i didnt like about it is my jeep is Yellow and i would have all the yellow hindges and door seals and stuff like that and just dont think it would look good with the camo. i could change/paint all my hindges and all that which crossed my mind but the door jams would still be BRIGHT yellow. The other issue i have with it is there is no one around here that will apply it. I am sure i could do it myslef. I have been doing window tent for years. But i would hate to try and screw it up. 600 bucks is just to much for me to gamble with and i figured i would rather put that money toward a winch

You could use plastidip on those yellow parts. Just an idea.

kyle32 03-12-2013 08:30 AM

Ya I am sure a company selling it is going to make it look easy. Watch some videos on window tinting they make that look easy also but trust me its not

kyle32 03-12-2013 10:18 AM

its a diffrent company.. but i get your point.. i will def look around town and find someone that does this kind of stuff for a living

O im not telling you that you wouldn't be able to. Im just saying it cost more then I am willing to gamble with.

kyle32 03-12-2013 10:29 AM

well the way i look at it.. jeeps have less curves and bends then this truck so one would think it make it easyer (still not easy tho)

might also look in to how much it would cost just to get it painted like that

Theres a jeep in the " pictures" forum that was wrapped in camo, cant remember how much it ran him. As far as the wheels go your best bet is to have them hydro dipped the cleared with a matte clear.

krisbman 03-12-2013 11:02 AM

Its titled " what do you think" by mudaholic. He did the wrap himself.

kyle32 03-12-2013 02:15 PM

thanks

I have never applied anything that large, but a trick that helps is this.

Fill a spray bottle with water and a little bit of dish soap. Shake it up and spray a light coat on the area you are putting the decal on. This will let you slide it around a bit to get it lined up right. Then get something you can use as a squeegee, like an old credit card or something. Slide it over the top to squeeze all the air bubbles out to the outside. Then let it sit out in the sun for a while to evaporate the solution and let the adhesive take hold before you drive it.

But again, I have never worked with something that big so this still looks like a difficult job to me. the basic principle of applying a decal should still work. Try this method out with a small decal first and see how it works for you.

Some of this new stuff you don't apply a lubricant like soapy water because it can be put on and pulled off as long as not on to long. And some wont set unless heat is applied. Some of the real cool stuff you lay on and apply heat and it shrinks fast to the curves and all. All depends on the maker of the wrap. I would just make just you read up on it and the type it is before you go spraying soapy water on it. From what I have read the biggest reason they have wraps so you don't use soapy water is so you don't get any moisture under the wrap against the paint. But for most decal and even window tint soapy water works great.

krisbman 03-12-2013 07:17 PM

The soapy water acts more as a lubricant to help squeegee out all the air bubbles

I been thinking about doing a Camo Wrap myself but I'm a little intimidated by the price and the risk of screwing it up by doing it myself... If you do it post it up and let us know how it went. I figure if you take the doors, hood, grille, fender flares, and tailgate and do it all separately in pieces it might not be so bad.

viperx6x9x 03-12-2013 07:58 PM

Yeah i would like to see it myself. Didn't realize they had a shink wrap ish kind now, sounds like that would work much easier.

I would rather have camo myself, but i saw a TJ with an interesting wrap the other day. It made it look like the whole skin of the jeep was carbon fiber, but with these blue hot rod flames on top. The design looked like it belonged more on a euro car but it looked like a professional job. I like the wrap idea but I can't afford $600.

I wonder if they do partial wraps any cheaper, like maybe just a rocker panel stripe that goes from bottom of the door down. Then you wouldn't have to worry about any curves. Just wrap it around the bottom and trim any excess off down there where it can't be seen.

kyle32 03-12-2013 08:56 PM

that site sells then in 12 by 12 and 24 by 24 it hink.. it eather that or 24 by 24 and 48 by 48

smaller one being 10 buck bigger being 20

so for 40 bucks you could do door.. i think it mighy be cheeper to buy them insted of the fited ones but i think fited will look better

JustinApperson 03-12-2013 09:33 PM

Go to camomyride.com you can get the kit for around $500 a lot of people say they buy it and have it put on by pros but i plan on doing it myself maybe with a buddy or two...

viperx6x9x 03-12-2013 10:03 PM

too bad they don't make this pattern in the rocker panel kits.

exactly what I have been looking for. Might try this kit out on my rifle though.

The vinyl wrap is surprisingly easy to work with guys, I've posted this before, but I'll share it again...

I did my R6 in September and it was the first time I'd ever attempted it, watch YouTube videos on how to use a heat gun to your advantage on curves and you'll be surprised at how easy it is, my bike has a lot of curves and al in all it turned out good. I've considered doing my jeep, but I like the chili pepper red too much to go camo haha

viperx6x9x 03-12-2013 11:18 PM

where did you find the digi camo? all i can find is the hunting style camo

This is who I bought my wrap from, great service, fast shipping and good quality so far. I bought way too much of it, but I figured I would mess up quite a bit, still only cost me $200 for the bike, I figured about $400-500 for my jeep if I were to do it. After doing the bike I wouldn't hesitate doing the jeep myself, there's not a curve on the jeep that I couldn't tackle after that bike.
