I've been emailing with Screen ProTech about the protective film linked above, and they said none of those packages are specifically designed for the 4xe Trailhawk (because each one of the options has 1-2 different parts), but they just received the design specs on the 4xe Trailhawk, so they're putting in a custom order for me for the exact right protective film pieces.

The difference thing is that the trailhawk trim doesn't have the retractable cover for the cupholders.
Did you ever get your custom kit order completed? We are wanting to basically get the same thing but kind of waiting for you to do it and show us what its like. ;)

Pictures don't do it justice...Screen looks and feels great with the Screen ProTech film... it actually seems to deepen the colors and clarity of the screen a bit, and fingerprints don't really show up on it, which is a HUGE improvement vs without it. If you zoom in on the passenger screen you can see some small bubbles that should come out in 7-14 days as it cures. Did the same for the piano black and looks similarly good.

A few tips:
  • They don't have a 4xe set, so I emailed with them to create a custom set (this matters because the center console configuration is slightly different than any of the ICE trim film sets, at least for the 4xe TH). Pay special attention to the "1 switch" or "2 switch" option, which refers to whether or not you have the switches to the left/ right of the drive shifting nob (air suspension hight, drive mode)
  • I'd recommend installing outside during daylight hours with a headlamp on for extra intense directional light. I found that it helped ensure I was able to spot issues like dust after I had cleaned the screen, imperfections with my application so I could reset it, etc.
  • Id highly recommend using painters tape or something to lift dust off the screen after you clean it for application (the kit doesn't come with sticky tape)
  • I also got a backup set of film, which I ended up using a couple pieces of since I botched a couple install attempts.
  • Have several extra microfiber cloths on hand, they include one small one. Not required, but makes it easier... but be careful because depending on the cloth, it might introduce dust/small filaments (their cloth is weaved in a way that prevents this)
  • Biggest thing is to install when you have plenty of time so you can go very slowly and meticulously. If you do it right the first time, you only have to do it once.
  • I was initially a little skeptical when applying the main screen film because I kept getting corners with extra film popping up in spots, but you just need to be really precise with placement and it'll go on fully flush. I found that alternating between pushing on the edges that kept popping up over the course of several minutes ended up taming them down to be flush.
  • Latex (or similar) gloves helped immensely with handling the film without worring about fingerprints on the sticky side.

Sounds like I need to make sure the kids are occupied somewhere else before they see me tinkering around in the new Jeep... They like to follow me out and jump around in the car when I am cleaning stuff.

Looks amazing! I just sent an email to the company. Love the tips too man thanks.

PS Did you get the cover for the passenger side interactive screen too? The fingerprints on our main screen and the side screen are out of control.

So which part of the center console is different than the ICE trim? Thanks!

It is confusing, and I bet my pics won't help... But here is my attempt using my phone... The order they picture it doesn't make sense as we are trying to look at it, but using a laser cutter (or whatever you want to call them) might lay it out like this to eliminate waste?

You nailed it. It's all about eliminating as much waste as possible when lining these up on the plotter.

Just dropped my Jeep off for PPF, ceramic, and tint. Talked to the owner/installer about the piano black trim. My preference was stealth, but there may not be pattern for all of the black trim and I don't want some to be matte and some gloss - seems like that would look weird. He said they don't really do custom cuts for interior stuff. I'll see how it comes out tomorrow when I pick it up.
You could always tell them to start buying Screen ProTech to offer to their customers 😏

Nothing is 4xe specific on the console.
Correct, the difference is that the "two switch" (which refers to trims with adjustable air suspension) Screen ProTech film set options have the piece of film for the retractable cup holder cover, but the TH trim doesn't have the retractable cup holder cover, so you need the piece of film that wraps around the cup holders themselves instead (which is from a different film set). Just emailed with them and they got me the right parts no problem.

It's been long enough now that my film had cured and the little bubbles have evaporated out. Looks and feels amazing, much more finger print resistant but still super glossy.
