All Wrapped and ready for Off Road!!

Hello All,

Got the beast covered in Xpel (after 3 days) and am less hesitant to go off road with the brilliant black finish now having some protection. Need something for the plastic bumpers though, so if anyone has some suggestions I will take them.
Went up to the Santa Rosa Plateau for a picture just after leaving the shop to get the best picture of the shine possible and it is! Normally even the best of wax jobs one can see lines or swirls in the paint but not with this covering. It is remarkable. However the true test is a brush-laden trail but that comes in the near future.
Here is a photo in extremely bright sun. Those of you who are enjoying your Cherokee (or are thinking of buying one) will hopefully like this image.
Cheers,

Bob

I could still see the pearl. I really like it except for the price, but IMO it's worth it!

Does Xpel get pitted from dead bugs not washed off or does that happen with all wraps?

Plasti Dip for bumpers gets really go reviews for cost, durability and ease of removal.

Yeah, gray plasti dip would look pretty close to stock...though that's why its plastic so its easily replaceable, needs a few battle scars.

That's my view as well. However, I am waiting to see how "cheap" the replacement parts will be.

Didn't think to ask the question. However the bumpers and side view mirrors were excluded but all the lights were covered. Time will tell and the installer will get a return visit if a few moths embed themselves in the lenses.
