Most people tend to wonder if wrapping their car is a great choice and the answer is yes, it is a fantastic choice. Getting a vinyl wrap on your Bronco will help to protect the car’s original paintwork from UV damage and light chips and scratches. So, if you are the type who loves to off-roading with your Bronco most of the time, a vinyl wrap is a great choice for you.
A vinyl wrap will not damage your Bronco providing you make sure that you install it properly. This is why it is always advisable to get it done professionally instead of doing it yourself. Vinyl wraps are designed to be safe for vehicle paint and will last on your car for about five to seven years provided you maintain it properly and also depending on the finish.
What makes a vinyl wrap different from a paint job is that the latter offers more protection for your vehicle since it always involves adding a chemical topcoat over the paint. But all in all, a vinyl wrap is the best way to customize and personalize your Bronco. When you see cars that have a camouflaged print or a chrome-like finish, there is a high chance that they were wrapped in vinyl.
Experience of Using Vinyl Wrap for Bronco
So far, most of the experiences of people getting a vinyl wrap on their Bronco have been positive. Most people tend to wonder if it is a great idea to choose a vinyl wrap for a vehicle that will be doing a lot of off-roading. After some research, we found an experience of a 3M Bronco wrap (wrapped for five months) and how it managed to withstand the rigors of not only everyday use but also off-reading.
The Bronco had on a 3M matte military green wrap and the reason why 3M was chosen was due to its quality so you might want to consider that when choosing a vinyl wrap for your Bronco. The vinyl wrap was put on by a professional which is also something to consider because as stated above, installing your vinyl wrap properly will ensure the utmost protection for your vehicle’s paint.
As at five months after the Bronco was wrapped, it was able to withstand day-to-day use – there were no problems of peeling, cracking or discolouration which is pretty impressive especially since the owner of the Bronco stayed mostly in a sunny area with lakes, salt water and sand. The wrap on the Bronco had been exposed to almost every element, except snow, and it held up pretty well.
Even though peeling is sometimes a problem for most drivers with a wrap on their Bronco, the owner of the Bronco in question did not have to deal with peeling even after five months of wrapping. This is majorly due to the fact that the wrap was quality- a 3M route. Another point seen in the research is that the wrap also went through some major off-roading alongside the everyday use.
Not just the basic kind of off-roading but the treacherous off-roading adventures like deep sand pits, big mud holes, crazy obstacles, water puddles and the likes. The first time the Bronco was taken off-roading was after the owner just got the vinyl wrap and it did not get ruined which is quite surprising. The wrap really held up against pinstripping despite going through the rigors of off-roading.
So, when the time comes to take off the wrap, the Bronco’s paint will surely be protected because the wrap itself did not get damaged. And, in contrast to what was stated above, if you are getting a vinyl wrap on your Bronco and you want to keep your vehicle’s original color, there is something called pps paint protection film that you can apply over your Bronco. This will help you keep the same color of your vehicle.
Cost of Ford Bronco Vinyl Wrapping
According to research, the price of getting a vinyl wrap on your Bronco ranges from $4,000 to $15,000 – this price range is usually the typical cost on a full vehicle wrap. That is, from the door sills to the bumpers and basically from the vehicle’s head to toe. The price depends on factors like the choice of material, trim pieces, square footage and how complex the compound curves are.
The wholesale cost of a vinyl wrap ranges from $350 to $3,000 depending on how many rolls you use for your vehicle.

Another Bronco owner paid $1,100, although it was not clearly stated whether he got the vinyl wrap for the entire car or just a part of it. But, the $1,100 was broken down – $700 for labour and $400 for vinyl. Usually, getting a vinyl wrap for a full vehicle costs about $4,000 so one should always plan around that figure. Also, they usually base pricing off of square footage so one should also take that into account.
