Thanks for the info. Definitely would want more coverage.

If you go aftermarket then check out Xpel’s PPF, it’s legit and supposed to be one of the best out there.
Far from cheap, but great stuff.
This is an example of "you get what you pay for".
I would love to do a whole vehicle in the stealth but I would have to sell extra organs to afford it!

This is what it costs in my area, was going to have my wife's new Explorer done.

Also I was told that it could run anywhere from 10 to 12 thousand to wrap her whole vehicle if she chose to do so. Hell No.

That's a very helpful diagram. I also want more than this. Judging by many of our other cars, the area under the grill is going to be a rock magnet. I'll also likely have the frame around the windscreen done. I.e. basically all the forward facing surfaces plus a bit of the hood.
What you want plus I'm thinking of doing the lower part of the doors. I feel like I could kick up some rocks there while high-flying it off-road. I'm open to advice from people that have done a lot of off-roading who can say where they saw rock chips other than the obvious frontal areas.

About what I expected.
Confirms that if I decide to get PPF if won't be this. Want better coverage of all the leading edges, including the grille and surrounding surfaces.

I thought of this the other day: As modular as the Bronco is, I can just remove a scratched fender, door, hood and get it repainted. You don't have to have a "body shop" paint anymore. You remove a fender, take it to an expert painting shop, take it back, install it on your truck.

Any 4WD is going to get rock dings and chips and scratches over the years. After so many years, say 10, I'll just get the bad parts repainted. Done...

I'm definitely looking forward to this. Also the steel bumpers. I've been backed-into and rear-ended by morons far too many times, and every time it requires at the very least complete replacement and painting of the bumper cover. One guy rear-ended me at the slowest speed scientifically possible, but his license plate screws still put two dimples in my bumper cover. Full replacement required. I miss the days when all cars had actual bumpers. My first car as a teenager was a "sports car" (1977 Camaro), and that sucker had a chrome steel bumper and 1" thick rubber strip that would make today's Ford F-150 proud.

I'll be glad to have a vehicle that can take a hit without a guaranteed visit to the auto body shop.

Can anyone tell me why the PPF isn't available with the 2.7 v6?
No one figured that question out yet, two theories people have put out there, the programmers screwed up B&P or the 2.7 engine heat is not compatible with that brand PFF.

Or Ford just didn't want to do it. It's a DIO anyway. Why not let someone else figure it out. They have enough on their plate.

Got to see the factory PPF today on a dusty/pollen Bronco. I was very impressed with the coverage area, wrapping the forward surfaces and extending back about 12-14 inches. I think the only thing better would be to do the entire front clip but that is going to cost a lot more than $295. It looks like a great value.
