Oh and Sunner about the bubble worries. This is a special vinyl that you can put on the car and peel off and restick alot while installing. Until you run a squeege across it, it will not be stuck. The cool thing about the vinyl is it has microscopic holes, I'm talking thousands in a sq in. This allows it to stretch and still adhere. On flat spots you can have a bubble the size of cd or even bigger and the holes allow the air to escape. So when you run a squeege across it you will have a nice flat wrap with no bubbles.
I am very interested in going with the wrap now but just got an online quote from fellers.com, $3,300!! Yikes!

They are outrageous. They are the biggest supplier, printer, and installer in the nation probably. They have schools to teach people how to install. Mor ethan likely if you sent your truck there not only will they charge you that much, but they will have a student put it on. They are the best, but you pay big money for it. Try to find a mom and pop shop with good wrap references to do it. Honestly the only part I would be scared to do on a taco is the fog light buckets on the front bumper.

Here is a Polaris Ranger I did...

That looks really good man, I plan on running an after market bumper, dont know if the bumper will come first or the wrap so the fog lights might now be an issue at all. Ill keep looking around though.

Hey I don't know why I didn't think to tell you this sooner, but a couple of my bros do really good work with all that stuff.

I know they're kind of a drive from you up in Bako, but if you do go with them you won't be disappointed! They're the only ones I would go to for tint, glass work and vinyl wrap. I would make the drive just to hang out with Norm and Miah.

Give them a call and tell them that their bro, Will sent you.

I'm thinking of wrapping my truck in a dark gray vinyl. But all the shops here charge a few grand for wraps and I might as well get a paint job, I think I could do it myself I just wanna know what materials I need and where the best place is to buy it online?
