Stainless DP with Exhaust Wrap?

So here's the thing... starting to build the White/Silver F250 and it's a low miler the intent is to keep it for some time. Currently has 62,000 kms yup 40,000 miles. Have never been an advocate of a SS exhaust... however given I'm keeping it and looking at the aluminized DP on my current truck (in ok shape but starting to rust) and parts truck (it's done, rusted through at the bell end). Was wondering if anyone has installed a stainless down pipe wrapped in exhaust wrap? Thinking is the wrap will keep the elements off it and perhaps be a bit cooler on the cab floor and the stainless with prevent the rusting that is what I have read via heat cycling when under wrap.

I don't have ceramic coating close at hand (that I am aware of) nor do I know how long it lasts.

Thoughts?

the negative i see, is if the elements get under the wrap they will probable get trapped there and cause more damage.

Pipe wrap looks cool, but there's a reason I don't run it on my Harley anymore. I found that it actually contributed to the pipes rotting quicker. Had the rear pipe crack and break off about 1 1/2" from the exhaust manifold and when I took the wrap off the pipes, they were severely pitted. This took place in under a year and the pipes were new when the wrap was installed. Other's experiences might be diffterent.

I wouldnt wrap
ceramic coating is inexpensive (if you use the satin black 2000deg) and there are at least two places here in the fraser valley
I used Rocket in Abbotsford for my turbine housing and it was $65
