Thanks man, I really like it alot. It is a little loud for some people's taste, but they ain't paying the note. Lol. Plus, vinyl was a good way to protect my paint from job site woes, constant highway travel and the endless pollen, salt, sand and bird shit you get living on the Gulf Coast. I appreciate you popping my feed back cherry. Did I just make this weird? Damn it... there I go with the awkward new guy stuff again.

Haha. Someone had to make it awkward. So you did a wrap then? It's sweet. Reminds me of the blue the charger and challenger come in. Looks good

I am too. My first impression was holy crap that's different. Now that I see it's a wrap I like it even more. Very cool!

I've wondered about those wrap's before, how much did that set you back?

The guy I went to claimed to have given me a "good deal". He said that since most of harder to wrap areas like the bumpers are linexed and there was no body work to be done that he could give me a break. Also he did not wrap the door jams. Out the door it cost me right at about $1500. He did all of the prep work like stripping the wax too. In fairness, I didn't even shop the price around, he was conveniently close to where i was working at the time. So 1500 very well may have been a steal.

Pretty sure my local graphics place prices them anywhere between $2500-$4000 depending on the size of the vehicle and complexity of the design on the wrap and labor. So you definitely got a steal.

I recently inquired about a graphics wrap with our logo, graphics are more expensive by 2x compared to just getting a solid wrap that's already available on the shelf.

Well it has been forever and a day since a posted. Meh... life. But I've done some mods along the way, I'll have to gather all the appropriate pics, but since the last post I have installed a MBRP S5150409 4" Cat-Back exhaust, I left the final 90 and Y off, so it dumps out as a down-turned single near the spare (tested for heat on the spare with no issues). Sounds great, I will record a video ASAP. Also installed a K&N 77-1568KTK. I junked the Amp Steps, they died doing Hurricane Harvey rescues, ordered and installed some Tyger Auto TG-AM2D20078 nerf bars from amazon to get me by until I'm ready for the white knuckles. I'm actually pleasantly surprised, I'm every bit of 250 and they are rock solid under my weight. However the use the factory step mounts with pinch weld bracing, so are by no means real sliders, but they look good. I have purchased and installed the AEV switch pod, and am getting ready to start working on some auxiliary lighting components. Lastly, the chrome Fuel rims I had, just like the Amp steps didn't survive Harvey. Chrome and hours of salt water fording don't mix, lol. I ended up staying true to my style and bro-ing it up on the replacements. I went with Dirty Life's "Road Kill" in a 20" x 9" +18 offset, wrapped in Mickey Thompson's "Deegan 38 M/T" in a 37" x 12.5" x 20"

Rim, Tire and Nerf Bar pics below, I'll try to get some pics of the others in the next few days.

Thank you sir, and yea I was lucky, only some minor roof/ ceiling damage, no flooding in the house. Once the water stopped rising and we knew our home was in no immediate danger me and the boy loaded up and went winch fishing. Never got too horrible, only about 3 feet deep down in Galveston where we are. Wish I could have been more help to the folks who were really affected, but there was no way, we drove up I-45 as far as we could and got to a point where they were using off ramps to launch boats. Figured we better take the Wagon home since it doesn't float too well.
