    Guys...I have been doing some homework on the ceramic coatings such as Gtechniq Crystal Serum and much wanted some feedback from this forum on its use. I am especially interested in any issues long term with the coating use. Expensive but seeing a few vehicles with the coating made me take a second look at the products. Appreciate the feedback!

    Do offroad through trees, and therefore your 4runner is going to get scratched?

    Yep....you are right...but being a black one I was thinking how this might ease in the cleanup and overall protection of the black paint which has a tendency to so everything.

    I purchased OptiCoat for mine and the clean up is great so far after weekend wheelin'. It is another layer of protection and increases the thickness of the finish so I am less concerned as I buff out scratches from trees.

    I have experience with black. It's a career. My vette is sealed with Modesta.
