    Its a risk, yes. There are also a lot of people that rip it off versus pulling small smooth chunks after heating to loosen the adhesion. To get the small pieces left over you heat and use a rubber squeegee.

    IMO seems like a lot of work for something that's going to get ripped up on the trails, at least around me. I'd rather just let my paint take the beating and try to buff it out if I ever wanted. :notsure:

    You can only buff so much. That same scratch that would tear vinyl likely wouldn't be buffed out.

    Damn, didn't realize it was that tough. I just pictured my truck with all the pin striping being frayed vinyl.

    Yeah, I think it will do fine around here. In the desert not so sure. I feel like sand would wear it down and the excessive heat wouldn't be the best. For slow crawling, where you just brush tree branches, then you will be fine.

    Only time will tell though. Hopefully this lays smooth and I can order 100' more to finish it up before june. I will try to get the tailgate this weekend but who knows with finals next week.

    Haha I think I could get 50% on all of them and still pass easily but I always get nervous. Plus, between gears and wrap sitting in my garage I am not exactly focused!

    I hear you man, just remember the difference in passing and killing it with your GPA makes getting a good first job that much easier ;)

    Haha I got veterans preference on my side. It will be easy to get a park ranger job in Wyoming with that plus my degree. Might even be able to get the 4x4 ranger job. Riding trails for work...dream come true.

    Gah I know! My degree opens up a ton of opportunities. Since its Fisheries and Wildlife Biology and Management I can pretty much do anything within game and fish. I am looking into being fish or wildlife biologist. With a bit more education I can go into vet school as well.

    1.5" Wheel spacers all around, 2.0 fox coil over with foxes in the back to match it up, add a leaf. 285/70/r16 general grabbers. my magnaflow exhaust k&n intake just threw in some maxtrac spindles. Total chaos UPA. Bunch of other little things
    You don't ever go off roading then ha (being sarcastic) don't know if you do or don't. My wife had dcsb MGM looked clean but was the biggest pita after any off road trip and all the scratches it leaves behind makes your truck look like crap over time. We both own white and it's honestly the easiest to cover up scratches. Coming from a guy who hated white trucks a lot.



    I have seriously considered trading my truck in to get a 4x4. Went to the desert and got stuck couple times. Pissed me off haha. I thinkin when I do an engine swap I'm going to look into Converting to a 4x4 hopefully it ain't too much of a pita and expensive.
