Great response, thank you for that!

"Periodically" wasn't a well thought out term. 11pm after a 13 hour day and not using great verbiage. The armor is pretty common sense stuff. If you're out running trails hard for a weekend, come home, take it off clean, the truck, clean the armor. That's typically how I roll. I do frequent trips to the desert for multiple days and obviously run it the whole time. No issues, just clean it all up when you get home. If you just love the look and are cruising around the city, then you don't need to clean as often.
I created this not to make a quick buck, but to fill a need. I'm a good, conscientious person, and when I did the testing I would painstakingly check for any sort of paint damage. I don't want my product to do damage, I want it to protect from damage. Over time, as testing continued, I got more aggressive. Water crossings, heavy brush, absolutely raking large pine boughs down the side. I can take it off and the only reason you'd know it's a hardcore trail truck is the extensive abrasions on the B-pillar between the front and backseat windows, which isn't covered. That and the skids look like I moonlight as mine sweeper.

I'm interested in the black digital OG or the Swedish urban black small scale.
My apologies for not having a more robust website. I do it myself, and I have much to learn. I'm working with my patterns designer on upgrading the website this summer to include the functionality of selecting the Make/Model, the OEM color, and then the armor overlay so you can better visualize what it would look like.

Each pattern and color scheme for that pattern were designed with particular OEM colors in mind. The Black OG, the Digi Black, and the Arachnid black all have tones that complement the magnetic gray.

The Colorado Gradient was designed specifically for the Quicksand. The Swedish Urban Gray looks awesome on the Cement and Silver.

The best way to follow and see some patterns on trucks is @GOATtruckarmor on Instagram or Facebook.

Anyone is always free to email me directly at matt@goat-truckarmor.com - it's always me answering, and I enjoy talking to customers and non-customers alike. I've become friends with a lot of my customers and even as I grow, I hope that doesn't change too much.

Looks like as of a few weeks ago the product is available on 5th Gen 4Runners. No pic of what it looks like on the 4Runner yet. Would be nice.

@GOATtruckarmor how do the magnetic panels work with fender flares and snorkels? are there outlines on the back side to cut along? or just cut it your self?

specifically for fender flares do you recommend sliding the panels under them?

and of course, when is the group buy

Haha, I'm soooo uninformed in the art of a group buy. If anyone knows best-practice, by all means, PM me.

As for the snorkel, the first fitment I do. I hand cut to fit. After that, I'll make a 1:1 scale template that can be downloaded and printed at any fedex for a few dollars. You'd cut to the template shape and there you go.
Fenders....The easiest way to do the aftermarket fender flares is to loosen them up, slip the armor under them, hold them back in place and run a Sharpie down the flair edge. Remove the armor, cut, and repeat 3x more. I've done this and it's very easy.

Yeah, saw some runners on IG with the armor and they look sick! generally the vendor/ distributor sets a price reduction for a bulk buy with a defined time to order by.

Here on the org, the details are posted here https://www.toyota-4runner.org/group-buys/

one caveat is that you may need to be an official vendor.

One question in regards to the fender flares, is your branding high enough to clear psi/ bushwacker flares? while i tend to not want branding on my truck, your business comes across as not wanting to make a killing and wanting to just make a quality product... and the graphic is kick ass so I'd gladly support it.

Any pics of the Toyota stripes with white base on a 4runner?

Toyota Stripes White base - Toyota 4Runner (2009+)

I am interested in this for the looks and door dings.

Matching hood scoop panel would be cool for glare reduction. Heck I would buy that alone.

My wifes JK has vinyl and it is starting to go, and it will not peal off. Not looking forward to how much that is going to cost me to replace and potential paint fade issues

Id be interested in an army green that will blend with OEM. I always wanted rhino hide because of the significant coverage they provide. Im also skeptical about covering the entire truck with vinyl.

For gaps not covered by panels, how odd would it be to have vinyl covering those areas? You guys think it would it look weird having vinyl strips along door seams without these panels on?

You mean the gaps where the door edges are? I think these cover enough to not have to put vinyl on the gaps, but I would say yes it would look weird with small strips of vinyl on without these magnets on.

Only thing I need to research now is what I can put over the plastic fenders. I saw a thread about two different brands of this clear stuff that goes over paint to protect it so I'll have to find it.

@GOATtruckarmor , I too have a magnetic grey and I do appreciate your suggestions. I am eyeing the Black Digicam and did look on Instagram for the Taco equivalent. You need more pics!
Also, I notice you post up discounts on your Instagram but I don't do Instagram so a group buy here would be outstanding!

Lord knows I need more pics! Surprisingly, I don't get quite as few from customers as you might think, not everyone is big on Instagram or Facebook. There are also so many patterns and truck color combos, it'll take some time to fill in the blanks!

The black digicam looks awesome on the black, and it has three different shades of gray so I feel it's a good fit for the magnetic gray as well.
