Anyone wrap their roof?

Saw one member that wrapped their roof in a matte black which looked great, but was curious if anyone has done it in a gloss? Just trying to get some ideas!

Yes! Also, there should be enough room on the d-pillars for illuminated landau bars.

Thanks for the heads up about the srt guys, I found a billet silver with a gloss black roof which is what I was looking for. Scottina do you have some time to take a few pictures? I heard durability is relatively moderate as long as the initial product is good and install is professional. Let me know if anyone has heard otherwise. Thanks again

Re: Anyone wrap their roof?

as long as you find a pro installer...it will last as long as the vinyl lasts. I also did my 2006 and it held up great. believe its still on that Jeep after 4 years. I believe the 3m scotchprint I used is 5-9 years rated outdoors. Keep it clean and it will be fine for years.

MEGUIARS ULTIMATE QUIK WAX SPRAY was recommended to me to keep the vinyl in good condition and shiny. I apply it quickly after a wash. Should last 5+ years as Scott said...

If anybody does take photos, please include some at the rear where the roof meets the "D" pillars. I'd like to see where the cutoff is. Thanks, Ed

Re: Anyone wrap their roof?

its easy...the d pillar doesnt intersect the roof. There is a rubber gasket that seperates the two.
