That stuff is garbage. It is no thicker than Saran Wrap after it dries and cannot see at providing the protection you are looking for. You cannot get the vehicle wet within the first 24 hours or it mars the film. It also remains tacky during this period. While drying the material runs to the lowest point leaving the thinner material at the top and a little bit thicker at the bottom with a maximum of maybe 2 to 3 mils.
Definitely consider something in the aftermarket minimum 6 mils, 8 mils preferably.
I always put it on the front of my vehicles, and will be doing the same to the truck (the film - not the spray). But I would recommend getting a professional to put it on - very difficult. Basically ask yourself - do you want to fix stone chips - or pay for some protection on the hood?
I bought a kit and tried it out. Set up is pretty easy. The plastic covering for the vehicle not getting the product is a must. It went on very easily. FOLLOW the instructions on the 3M web page video on how to apply it. Too much or too little is very easy to do. It looked great until it was about 1/2 way dry. It started to bubble then kept on going. I waited for it to dry then peeled it off. It was an inexpensive item so it was not that big of a deal. I would not recommend it.
I put the film on my MINI and Beetle. Only easy if you know the tricks. Last time I purchased the full front kit for the beetle it was $325. I tint my own windows also pretty simple to do. Just takes patience. It's worth the $ to have it done if you are not sure.

I have something odd going on with my truck. I've noticed the last 3 trips from Wasilla to Anchorage & back, believe the TC isn't locking up until I'm going down slight inclines or on absolutely level ground. At 65 mph using cruise or not, going up these slight inclines its around 2K RPM, I...

Just received a call from FCA following up on my filing a complaint with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. They got an ear full but I was nice.
