    I am looking into getting a flat black vinyl rap for my 2011 tacoma. I will be doing a lot of off roading and I'm not sure if the vinyl will survive all the mud and dust i will put on it. I am getting a front bumper, so the bumper ripping wont be an issue. So for someone like me, who spends a lot of time in the desert, is it a problem?...

    I think it will survive, but is it worth it? last quote i received for a full flat black vinyl wrap was close to $3000

    It won't look very nice for very long. But I would think it will definitely help protect your paint. For $3000 I would be putting in on my Escalade or something, not a off road rig. Just my $0.02.

    My fenders are vinyl and it get scratched. It won't look clean after trips off road. But they are fender flares and I could care less. If I were to wrap the whole thing I would keep if off the trails for 3k.

    If Your going for a serious off-road truck why not just "rattle can" it. If you take your time, it can come out nice and you can just respray your truck whenever the scratches get bad. I've seen some pretty good "rattle canned" paint jobs at import shows. Just a thought.

    Sport compact did this in a garage with spray cans and 500 grit sandpaper
