Hi,

Anyone get their 4xe protected with PPF or ceramic coating? If so, what did you go with, why and how much did you pay?

Thanks

I didn’t get the Simoniz coating but just as I was about to pay for the Jeep I told the guy doing the actual sale I thought it was just too pricey and he offered half off. So if you hold out or look like you don’t want it they may offer a better deal

I get the PPF on Wednesday. Front grill, part of hood, fenders, some of panels, and 24 inches on each door (oh and the hinges, which now I know why they are a problem). Looks to be about $1,000. I'm planning on actually using this as a jeep and I'm trying to prevent a rocky mountain pin stripe. There's a good chance I will ceramic after I get the PPF on.

I've been using the new armor all ceramic wash with a pressure washer foam canon. I used some of the temp ceramic coating but that wash is just way easier and better results. It's the most fun I've ever had washing anything.

@igiofio I decided to PPF the hood, cowl and windshield frame. I ceramic coated the vehicle except these areas and will coat them once the PPF is installed next week.

@igiofio here is a pic of the coating. NV EVO is what I chose. Early impressions is that it has great self cleaning. Even after several rainstorms it looks almost perfectly clean. You don't get the mirror finish with white but I love the the blue, black and white.

Maybe it was just me but the last Jeep I had, a 2020 Firecracker Red Unlimited, was the most durable paint I've ever seen. I swear it seemed to hold up well in the year+ I had it, just didn't have any perceptible swirls or scratches even after off roading. The new Audi's I've had though, swirl-city after a couple months.

I only go to the car washes that use the scrubbers, so it made the Jeep impressive.

@JakeK66 I had a black JK and was able to keep the paint in fairly good shape but I am fanatical about my wash method. I don't even let people touch the paint to close the door, I make them use the black handle. Yes, I am a crazy....lol

I was just looking at ceramic paint protection, a place around me said they can do it as low as 500 dollars and it can go as high as 1500

Applied NV Evo to the hood, windshield frame, fender flares, mirrors, tail lights and bumpers - this completes the whole vehicle. Added a nice dark look to the black trim and steel bumpers but I love the gloss it added to the hood. Not bad for white!
