2023 RAM 2500 PPF and ceramic coating process

This 2023 RAM 2500 PPF project is not the first car we have done for our Lampasas clients – originally, we completed a full-body PPF on their 2023 C8 Corvette. Now we are installing Autobahn Incognito PPF on this RAM 2500 on the hood and sides of the truck. The front of this 2023 RAM 2500 PPF project is mostly left unprotected, as the client is replacing the painted bumper with a larger metal bumper and brush guard.

When you have a large truck, it tends to get whiplash along the sides of the doors and bed, and the RAM 2500 has a body line that allows us to hide a piece of PPF to protect the door without it being super obvious. The PPF on the hood of this 2023 RAM 2500 will stop the rock chips, and the Autobahn Incognito PPF along the sides, will stop any potential whiplash! The ceramic coating will make it all easier to clean up!

If you have a 2023 RAM 2500, do you pick the ceramic coating or do you get PPF?

Paint protection film (PPF) is a clear, thin layer of thermoplastic urethane applied to the exterior of a vehicle to protect its paint from damage. While the decision to put PPF on your 2023 RAM 2500 ultimately depends on your personal preferences and priorities, here are several reasons why many people choose to do so:

  1. Protection from Road Debris and Stones: PPF provides a barrier against road debris, stones, and other small objects that can cause chips, scratches, or other damage to the vehicle’s paint. This is especially important for larger vehicles like the RAM 2500, which may be more susceptible to damage from kicked-up rocks and gravel.

  2. Prevention of Bug Splatter and Bird Droppings: PPF can help protect your vehicle’s paint from the corrosive effects of bug splatter, bird droppings, and other contaminants. These substances can be acidic and may damage the paint if left untreated. PPF makes it easier to clean and maintain your vehicle’s appearance.

  3. Preservation of Resale Value: Applying PPF can contribute to maintaining the resale value of your RAM 2500. The film helps preserve the original paint finish, and potential buyers may find a well-protected vehicle more appealing.

  4. UV Protection: PPF often has UV-blocking properties that protect the vehicle’s paint from the sun’s harmful rays. This can prevent the paint from fading or oxidizing over time, preserving the appearance of your RAM 2500.

  5. Self-Healing Properties: Some high-quality PPFs have self-healing properties, meaning they can “heal” minor scratches and swirl marks over time when exposed to heat or sunlight. This can help keep the film looking new and maintaining its protective qualities.

  6. Aesthetics: PPF is virtually invisible when applied correctly, allowing the original color and finish of your RAM 2500 to shine through. Unlike some traditional protective measures, PPF doesn’t alter the appearance of the vehicle.

  7. Ease of Maintenance: PPF makes cleaning and maintaining your vehicle easier. The smooth, non-porous surface of the film resists dirt and makes it less likely for contaminants to adhere to the paint surface.

Keep in mind that the effectiveness of PPF depends on the quality of the film and the professional installation. If you decide to go for PPF, it’s advisable to choose a reputable installer with experience in applying paint protection films.
