Paint or Wrap?

I am thinking of getting my truck painted in a Texas flag look. Do y'all think paint or a vehicle wrap would be a better idea as far as price and durability? I do not have a garage big enough for my truck so it would be outside.

Wrap it up! It's removable and protects too!

I heard they fade/crack depending your environment and wear down your clear coat.

Re: Paint or Wrap?

Well A paint job like that done right will be crazy expensive I vote wrap. A whole lot cheaper and easier to change your mind.

Re: Paint or Wrap?

You all make a very good point I hadn't thought of before. If I changed my mind eventually. I could always get a good cover for the truck to protect it from the sun until I can get a tall enough awning. I believe I will start talking to wrapping places.
