    I was wondering how many of you have paint protection (clear bra) on your trucks? I had my windows tinted and they a video up of them applying to really nice cars and a rav4.
    Seams like a good product so I was wondering if anyone has it on their truck and how they like it.

    I do not have clear bra on my truck. To high to worry too much about rocks hitting it. Cars? Yep, done it on those.

    I don't have it, but with the color matched white bumper and grill surround I really wish I did. Might still do it one of these days.

    I installed suntek paint protection film on my truck myself. I love it and think it was a great investment.

    I have it on my a-pillars, hood, fenders, door cups, grill and the little pieces under the headlights.

    Maybe I am unlucky, but I have a few rock chips in my windshield. Can't stand them.

    Or maybe I'm lucky. Have never had to replace a windshield in 15 years living in CO

    None to date but coming!
    I personally have done paint correction, paint protection (ceramic coating), and a clear bra with ceramic coating on top of that. I wanted to make sure everything is protected and the investment is well worth it. I have everything in the front clip pretty much covered

    That’s good to know guys have done that to their tundras. I’m getting the front clip, rockers from the front to rear wheel and the top and bottom of the tailgate

    I may do the top part of my tailgate. People always grab at the paint to close it. I try to prevent anyone from closing it so they don't scratch it haha
