    I Admit when we started wrapping it. I wasn't sure about color, but by the time we finished I loved it. As for chips never had one!, Scratches I had, but it just buffs out with vinyl polish. and if it tears through a piece I'll replace the panel. I had it wrapped by a company called GPFX Graphics in Richmond. Here's some other Cars Andy's done.

    Looks friggin awesome! I think the lift is a must to complete the look and the BHLM will set it off.

    I like the idea of a good quality wrap. It is different and protects the original paint for later in life if you decide to sell thus increasing resale!

    Few grand where I'm from. I thought it'd be a good idea to protect the paint for a few years until I saw the cost. Then I realized I could let the paint get nicked and scratched and just repaint the whole truck for a little more than what wrap would have cost me. Perhaps the OP has better prices there.

    Should I lift it is more of a question of, do my tires fit and do I want to cut anything?

    A lift isn't going to do anything for you for ground clearance, so your question is, do I need, and am I going to put taller tires on that won't otherwise fit? If so, how much balance between lift and trimming am I comfortable with for my application?

    Do you have plans for taller tires for greater gc?

    Looks great. Make sure they use a high quality material. A shop I do some work with in CA does lots of high end cars and I have never seen vinyl chip.
