Make sure you get everything properly inspected, my 2016 GMC also got rear ended in a similar crash. At first glance I thought only the bumper had a small dent. But the damage ended up costing just under $5000 Canadian. if you look at the gap between the tailgate and the fender panel it looks tight at the bottom. Same thing happened to mine. The entire passenger side of the box had to be re-adjusted, new bumper new tailgate and redo the clear coat to the back half of the truck. The damage is not always obvious. Good luck, I hope the insurance makes it right for you.
The 3m clear stuff is specifically designed to offer rock chip protection, it's thicker 6mil. The 3m vinyl wrap they make in various colors only has a 3.5mil thickness as far as I know.
I think most vinyl wraps are quite thin and offer little to no protection against rock chips. it's usually more of a cosmetic product instead of paint protection. Maybe the product your looking at is different and is specifically designed for this type of application. have you considered clear paint protection (either 3M, expel, proskin)?
jjt replied to Gorehamj's topic in The NewsroomYou were obviously responding to someone else' post, I realized that as soon as I read your response. No harm done. It was kind of harsh, but good on you for editing your comment after realizing it. It is a cool looking build, but no mater what you build it's never going to appeal to everyone. You need to accept criticism if you truly are a designer. I'm not sure if you really are a GM designer, and if you had anything to do with this particular truck build. But maybe next time you can try to educate someone on the details of the build rather than insulting them on the internet. PS: Probably not the best idea to use you real name and acting this way while representing GM on the internet. If I represented my company this way, I would no longer have a job.
jjt replied to Gorehamj's topic in The NewsroomI'm not sure if it's the same one, but this one was in Calgary AB in August.
I think the bora spacers are hub centric and wheel centric where as the wheeladaptersusa spacers are only hub centric. I've never used either of these spacers, but i'm sure ther's a reason most people recomend the bora spacers.
Is your wheel making contact or the tire? My brother in law and I both have All Terrain Sierras, with stock GM 20" wheels. Mine is still stock setup but he put a leveling kit on his, but still has the stock tires. When I was looking at his setup we noticed that his wheels not the tires are now rubbing on the upper control arms. The inside edge of his wheels are worn down to a sharp edge compared to my wheels. I'm not sure what brand or height level kit he has on, but I'm guessing the angle change was enough to make contact with the wheels. I have searched on this site and on Google, but haven't found anyone with same problem.
