Jeep Wranglers were very popular cars and they sold like hotcakes in 2018. They are still a highly desired vehicle by many consumers. While Jeep Wranglers come in twelve beautiful colors, many people find that they want a unique vehicle instead of the same one that 100 other people have. This can be achieved by wrapping a car.
It costs $3,200 on average to wrap a Jeep Wrangler. While a price around this range is most common, it can cost anywhere from $1350 to $5000 for a vinyl wrap. A chrome finish can be from $6000-$10,000. However, personal wrap jobs can be much cheaper at around $900.
Knowing the price of wrapping a Jeep Wrangler is important when deciding whether to wrap or not, but there are all sorts of other variables that can impact a decision like this. When deciding to wrap a vehicle, including a Jeep Wrangler, make sure you know how the wrap will affect the vehicle, what other options there are, and other similar things.
Why Does a Wrap Cost that Much?
Any car will have a different price for wrapping it, and Jeep Wranglers are no different. This price variation is due to how customizable wraps are. Every job is different, even on the same model of car, so it is important to consider the kind of vinyl you are getting and how it is being applied.
Whether you decide to use a service or wrap your car on your own, vinyl price can dramatically change how expensive a wrap can be. On average, a 25-foot roll of vinyl costs $290. This average is based on the most common vinyl used for wraps. A more unique, custom printed, or rare vinyl can cost much more, bringing up the total cost of your wrap job.
Using a Service
Having a company wrap your Wrangler is going to be more expensive than doing it yourself. This is not a bad thing, as having people who really know how to do a good job wrapping a car are more likely to give you better results than doing it yourself. While most of the time hiring a service will give you great results, some companies do a better job than others. Make sure you research the company beforehand so you don’t have to deal with a botched wrap job.
Using a service will also save you the trouble of learning how to wrap a car, accidentally damaging the original paint, and buying the necessary tools. You might not save money, but you will save the time and the hassle that you have to go through if you do it yourself.
Doing It Yourself
Wrapping your Jeep Wrangler yourself is also an option if you really want a custom vehicle but don’t have the budget for a professional wrap job. This approach is doable if you are willing to put in the time and effort. Wrapping your Jeep yourself will save you a lot of money and you can have full control over how the end result looks. However, you could end up with issues because you might not know how to properly apply the wrap, you will have to buy the tools, and you will need to purchase the vinyl.
How Will a Wrap Affect My Wrangler?
A huge concern that many people have when thinking about getting a wrap for their Jeep Wrangler is how applying a wrap will affect their vehicle. This includes how the vehicle operates and how the original paint job will be affected underneath.
Performance of a Wrapped Vehicle
Wrapping any car, including a Jeep Wrangler, can be a little scary or confusing because you do not want your new or trusted car to be changed or damaged. Luckily for you, a wrap does not affect how a vehicle performs. It is comparable to a paint job. A paint job only changes the outward appearance of the vehicle and does not affect how it operates.
Will it Damage Original Paint?
The biggest concern of people wrapping their car for the first time is that they worry that the original paint will be damaged underneath the vinyl. While getting a wrap is comparable to getting your Jeep painted, it is not nearly the same thing.
A wrap looks like a paint job, but instead of it being a permanent recoloring of a car, it is only a temporary plastic covering over the original paint. This covering does not damage the paint underneath. In fact, it actually does the opposite and protects the paint. It is sealed over the body of the car and protects the paint from being damaged. The original paint will be preserved, and when you are ready to remove the wrap, or it wears out, it can be taken off and reverted to the original paint.
Why do people choose to wrap their Jeeps instead of just getting them repainted? That question has a lot of answers, as there are a lot of benefits to wrapping a vehicle that paint does not offer.
- The cost of wrapping is similar to a paint job and can often be cheaper. Wrapping a car can seem expensive, but an average wrap is cheaper than re-painting. Why would you not want the added benefits of a wrap at such a cheap price?
- The color is not offered by the factory. If the factory that makes Jeep Wranglers does not offer the color that you want, a wrap is the perfect option for you. Because they are computer-generated, wraps can come in any color you want.
- It is a great option for leased vehicles. If you are leasing a Jeep Wrangler, you might not like the color, and painting is out of the question as it affects the condition the car was leased out in. A wrap can satisfy your desire for a change of color without violating your lease.
The benefits of wrapping are so great that it is the best option for so many people. Wrapping your Jeep Wrangler can be the thing that gives it that extra wow factor.
