So I’ve been wanting to wrap mine for a while now but keep getting conflicting information that maybe you can answer.

How long do you expect it to last before needing to be redone? I’ve been told as little as 3 years.

I’ve also been told it shouldn’t go on trails wrapped because it will get cut up pretty bad.

Any opinion on either?

The color is warrantied for 3 years for horizontal surfaces and 5 for vertical, so you are getting that at minimum. We plan to going 5 and evaluating what to do then.

For trails, ripping a panel and getting it wrapped again sounds a lot better than scratching up your paint. No experience there, yet. This is my wife's jeep and I doubt she will ever hit hard trails with it.

How do you guys keep the black clean? I know jeeps are supposed to be dirty but they also look nice clean!
I use ceramic coating on everything. Suspension, wheels, bumpers, plastic, everything. Also helps that I live where there is no rain. I also have a lift and OCD…. Would like to see more pics of your jeep. Looks sweet.

What effect has the addition of larger wheels & tires had on the all-electric driving range? Just curious.

The battery depletes a tad quicker - but I am addressing some issues with the install that my local tire shop has failed on. I'll spare you the details but after they correct this issue, I am hoping this isn't the case - so TBT for now?

I've been a long time fan of NuFinish products. I use the traditional NuFinish polish, then added the Ceramic Coating spray. Works like a CHAMP!
