Take your time, give yourself plenty of vinyl to work with, squeegee and heat and its pretty easy. Plasti dip sucks in areas where it gets lots of traffic and WILL peel after a month. Good luck!
Did you apply the vinyl on the B pillars as well, or just leave those as is? I'm noticing on my '14 Overland (same color as yours) that the paint or whatever material on the B pillars is chipping/peeling off in some spots.

Guess I'm pondering applying the vinyl over the current state of the B pillars, or swinging by the dealership to see what they would do to fix it.

Thanks for sharing; looks sharp!

No I didn't vinyl the b pillars. I haven't noticed any chipping but I've only had the car for a couple months now. If you're still under warranty, I would swing by the dealership and see what they can do. Otherwise, I don't see any problems with vinyling that portion.

The wheels really complete the look. Looks like a much more badass version of the Altitude

Zero chrome. Well...i left the chrome hooks alone in case i ever used them plus i kind of like the contrast. Other than that, everything else has been blacked out. I'm trying to find some black exhaust tips to finish it.
