Let them paint it.

I'd let them paint it. No one will know when they're done. The paint is brand new on the vehicle so matching shouldn't be a problem. You really don't have another choice unless you pass on the delivery of it.

Yeah...I have a set of Greenlane off-road aluminum sliders coming. I had RSG sliders on my last 4Runner but we don't do any rock crawling so I went with aluminum, being in the rust belt.

that's what i would do. I aint driving around in no Camry while waiting on your chosen steed that THEY damaged.

That's a good plan. Do you think the dealership will find me a Land Cruiser to drive and let me keep it for 6 months until another 4Runner comes in? Doubtful. Good plan though.

They told me it was being fixed on their dime and nothing would show up on carfax.

deep gouges? ya that sucks and a suppose a repaint makes sense then

There are about a dozen chips. Not down to the bare metal but down to the primer. I had thought about touching them up myself. I use Dr Colorchip and find that it works very well. But with that many chips, I'd rather just have it repainted. If they don't do a good job, they'll have to redo it until it's perfect.

No cost to me. Sales manager swears it will look perfect. This is the second 4Runner I've purchased from them and they seem pretty "stand up."

You could buy a Landcruiser for 6 months, and then resell it. But there is absolutely no chance of them loaning you one for 6 months.

OK, cool. If you trust them and have a history, no problem. When a dealers tells me something like "the deposit is fully refundable, I make them write down jut so they can't back away.

It'll probably come out looking just great.

Agreed...
My 2010 Trail which is Classic Silver needed a new rear bumper and I was concerned about the paint match (especially being 12 years old) so I took it to to Toyota.
They matched the classic silver perfectly. New bumper looks like it was there from day one.

I wonder how much a high quality wrap would be of the color you choose. Not judging, just finding it curious to pay $3800 for a color change. The inner cheap-o frugal person inside of me is wondering.

The cost to wrap a 4Runner is likely more than $3.8K if you go to someone proven who does quality work/uses quality material.
