It was just shy of $5k to have the entire vehicle covered on the Gladiator. It's about half that on the two door (or will be; waiting on delivery). Expensive yes. But pin striping will annoy the shit out of me and I'd just end up repainting it for that price (or more) anyway. I figure now I won't have to do that, nor will I have to stare at pin striping all the time.Gotcha, misread the comment. How much did PPF cost on each?
Ha ha, my dealer got my vehicle from another dealer and still put his dealer decal on it - first thing I removed when I got home.I was adamant with my sales person to not allow my ordered JT to get washed or the interior detail, or I wasn't going to purchase it. I understand how the car wash person at the dealerships treats new soft paint with loving and delicate care, a little speck of dirt, no problem the 5-Giga psi power washer will remove it.
Also, no dealership stickers, and above all NO DAMN TIRE SHINE.
Assuming that's from factory that's interesting. My JLUR didn't have that -- thought I added it, but maybe I'm wrong and it did. I did the full front end treatment of PPF on the 4 door knowing I wasn't keeping it longer than 4 yearsI got PPF on fenders, but only partial on the rear where it faces forward. The front fenders are completely covered.
Might be less of an issue as well in San Diego. Granted, Wranglers are taller up and with a bug deflector you can probably skirt a lot of the rock chips. But overall, should have seen my wife's 320i without PPF after 3 years. Probably a solid 75 rock chips and literally full paint coming off. Cost me about $300 in damage fees. Still cheaper than PPF though.My dealer only did the edges of the 4 doors to protect against banging on objects.
I don't have any of the front protected.
+1 to that. I went with the ~11 mil thick Xpel this time as opposed to the previous generation 8 mil. I have a few chips as well on the 4 door that went through the PPF (i.e., damaged it) but that did not actually damage the paint. I probably could have had those few spots repaired but never bothered.The rock chips have gone through the PPF on my other cars and it looked like someone took a nail clipper to it. Get the thicker one and don't skimp for sure.
