A good wrap can be done for $3000-$5000, good paint is realistically worth 8 or 9 grand.

Thats if you do it right, you could get your truck sprayed for 2 grand from macco, but you'll be repainting it in a year anyways.

Should be about $4,000 for a good paint job (had two trucks done recently). Just like paint, wraps will vary with quality of product and installation. Since a wrap can be removed with no permanent damage to the vehicle, I'd suggest that route. Once the flat black fad is gone, everyone who painted their vehicle will hate themselves for it.

Idk about labor but yea probably. A good wrap could cost as much as a good paint job.

A wrap for my quad is $500 so I would think for a truck is not cheap at all
