As long as you apply it when the temps are not too cold and lay down 3-5 coats it will be fine. Stuff is pretty tough.

@Brett2013fx4 - did you ever get your rear emblem off? The one on my 2014 is one piece as well. I want to take it off to dip, but don't want to break tabs. My front was one piece also...I broke one of the tabs on it. Occasionally, I have to straighten it when in get in the truck. Double sided tape will fix it but mine looks like it needs sprayed again already.

LOL, the dreaded Canadian winter! Well, it held up well on my Rangers wheels through a dreaded Michigan winter, through salt/sand, everything. I had at least 5 coats, maybe more on them. I've got them sitting out in the barn right now since I put on some larger tires/wheels. You shouldn't have a problem. The key is proper prep.

I had to have my rear camera replaced under warranty. They had to pop off the rear oval emblem to do it, and said there's almost no way to get it off without breaking the tabs. They wanted to make sure I still wanted them to do the replacement since my emblems are painted and have overlays. I ended up just popping off the new emblem (breaking the tabs of course) and put mine back on with some 3M emblem adhesive. Worked very well and hasn't moved at all. So that's an option if/when you do break the tabs

I PD'd almost all the chrome. Rims, bumpers, grill, emblems, vent rings, door handles. Did the mirror reflectors too. Little worried about how it will hold up, don't want to have to do weekly touchups. I went through 8 cans which I picked up online at $11 per can. Let me know what you think....

You did your steps? They will be the first to peel. Along with your door handles if you didn't use electrical tape on the inside. :-\

Ya - I am a little worried about the steps. I took all four plastic step covers off first to avoid a seam around them. I have instructed my kids to use the plastic....

Think my handles might hold up. I didn't spray or paint behind them.

Let you know if they hold up.
