2023 RAM 1500 PPF & ceramic coating

In the automotive protection realm, the debate often centers around which panel deserves the primary focus for Paint Protection Film (PPF). While conventional wisdom may lean toward the hood, our approach at Harker Heights Ceramic Coatings challenges this notion, and we have a Copperas Cove/Killeen/Harker Heights area client who wholeheartedly agrees. Opting for a targeted PPF installation on her 2023 Ram 1500, our client prioritized safeguarding the front bumper, recognizing it as the unsung hero bearing the brunt of road debris.

The front bumper emerges as the frontline warrior, facing rock chips head-on and absorbing the majority of road abuse. Unlike the hood, which might be more visible but tends to accumulate chips at a slower rate, the flat and exposed nature of the bumper makes it a prime candidate for protection. Moreover, repainting a bumper poses a more intricate challenge due to its complex structure, involving disassembly of various components such as wire harnesses, lights, grilles, and plastic pieces.

Our philosophy aligns with practicality, especially when budget considerations come into play. Rather than exclusively focusing on the hood, we recommend, and our client opted for, a targeted PPF application on the front bumper. Complementing this strategic protection, we extended the coverage with a comprehensive ceramic coating for the rest of the vehicle, including the interior, wheels, and glass.

If you have a 2023 RAM 1500 do you pick the ceramic coating or do you get PPF?
