I would love to see a SD wrapped or painted flat black. I have always liked that look

I would think the wrap (as long as it didn't get scratched or ripped) is easier to take care of, right?

you wash it like you normally wash a car, bird crap dirt mud salt rain comes off so easy, its pretty hard to scratch the stuff. depending on who wraps the truck, it can go through the car wash, but sometimes it will peel off due to the high pressure water, my truck will be done by Diesel Nationals so il post pics!

depends where you take it usually about $3,500. Takes a few days to make it look like paint, my friends shop takes all door trim handles plastics off so it really looks like paint youd never know. or a few hours if you want it to look like a wrinkled *** shirt you been wearing all weekend lol.

It lasts about 6-8 years depending if the vehicle is garaged. If its garaged and not daily driven it will last a lifetime. IF its outside and driven everyday in every weather condition which lets get real is ALL OF USS itl last 6-8 years before you see some fade.

A few friends of mine have it on there race cars. The only problem is burnouts, the hot rubber tends to leave suppper tiny divits in the stuff behind the tire!
