:welcome: aboard. Have no personal experience with this stuff, but, I did see one truck with it on in New Mexico. Don't know if it was the same company as the one you listed but the guy was pleased with the results.

Looks like the same product/material thats been popular on racecars.
Ive used it on a car and was pleased with it, easy to put on if your careful and think before you do anything.
Read the instructions carefully if it comes with any.
Not as good as a real paintjob but costs less and you dont start to cry when your wife scratch it. :)

A lot of that stuff is just vinyl with an adhesive backing. I'm sure that is, too. If so, you need to clean your truck VERY well. Dry it well. Remove lint and other stuff that may get caught in the adhesive.

Then, with a spray bottle of distilled water, you spray the surface of the truck (work in sections), peel back the adhesive backing, and apply to the truck. With a rubber squeegee, start pushing it down and out to the edges. The squeegee will push out the air bubbles and the water. Keep doing it until it adheres to the surface and no more water is coming out from under the vinyl. Wipe off with a cotton towel. Done. Move to the next surface.

Areas that have a lot of big curves or dips may need the assistance of a hair dryer or a heat gun. Mild heat will allow the vinyl to stretch a bit more.

That is generally how it's done. The company may provide you with a different solution/chemical other than distilled water. Just read the directions, and you should be OK. Post some pics after you complete this project!
