    I've never seen it yet. Expense likely has a big part of it.

    I've looked into it a little bit. If you go to some of the websites for companies that do wraps, one of their big caveats is always that it's not a replacement for paint. Given that these trucks are 23+years old, they typically have dents, dings, chips, and/or rust that make a wrap not work well or look good. If you need to do the body work to do a wrap that will only last 3-5 years, you might as well just get it painted and have it last longer.
    If you have a pretty straight body as it is, a wrap might be a fun option. Check out some YouTube videos and see if it is something you want to do yourself, that way it will be a lot more economical than paint. I pulled some 3"x5"samples off eBay for a couple dollars a piece and wrapped my phone and decided I might not like that on my vehicle.
