Wrap Protectors

After listening to many of you on the forums I'm ordering a new set of wrap protectors for my 2013 16' Sport.

Price for two plus shipping and install will be $900 but I think this is much cheaper than having to replace in the future the two front curved panels on the AS at $1,600 a piece plus labor!!!!

They weigh only 15.5 pounds each so I don't have to worry about adding significant weight to the coach. Thier the same units the International 16' unit comes with.

I'll allow the wraps to take the brunt of the road induced damage and when I'm ready to sell my AS in the future I'll install a set of new ones.

Your thoughts?

Money well spent. The roads are so full of junk, it doesn't take much to ruin a front end.

I could not avoid a big "gator" once, it was kicked up by my TV tires, whacked the wrap protector on the curb side. Got home, discovered it had caved in the protector. When I opened up the protector found it had caved in the front panel also. I used a suction cup to pull out the panel, and some careful pounding on the protector to knock it back out. It all looks pretty good.

Had I not had the WP that darned gator may have ended up in my living room.

Suggest to also add some flaps to the jeep ... the stainless will protect the aluminum, but we have many dings in the segment protectors even with flaps on our truck... sometimes it is just the tread pattern in the tires which makes the "shooting star" rocks so hard on the front of the AS. We didn't seem to have such a problem until the current set of tires.
