Jeep Grand Cherokee Vehicle Wraps  

A lot of our customers ask us how much vinyl they should buy to wrap for their Jeep Grand Cherokee. In the past, we weren’t able to provide the best answer which is why we teamed up with Justin Pate from the Wrap Institute. Now, we can give you an accurate amount that you will need to wrap your vehicle. Even better than that, with Pate's help, we can tell you how to measure and prepare the vinyl wrap and cut it into sections so you can wrap all the surfaces of your vehicle. You can watch the full video below and pause the video so you can accurately follow each step for the best possible result.



How Much Vinyl Do I Need to Wrap My Grand Cherokee?




First Generation Jeep Grand Cherokee (1993-1998)

The ZJ was first offered as a 1993 model. It was built on a monocoque frame, providing luxurious touches such as power windows, keyless entry, and four-wheel ABS, and was set to compete directly with the Ford Explorer. Three trims were initially available: Base (later changed to SE), Laredo, and Limited, though the SE trim was dropped after only a few years. Minimal additions accompanied the ZJ Grand Cherokee through its infancy, though small improvements such as four-wheel disc brakes, unibody chassis, the addition of a passenger-side air bag, ride quality improvements, and several appearance packages were offered throughout its first run.

For the first generation Jeep Grand Cherokee, you will need about 15 yards of vinyl wraps to completely wrap it. The vinyl wrap is going to cover the entire exterior besides the windows, lights, and tires. That includes the doors, trunks, hoods, roof, pillar post trim, bumpers, mirrors, rocker panels, and fenders. For partial wraps, 5 yards is a great option since that covers one side of the vehicle.

The 4.0-liter straight six remained the standard engine, though power was increased to 195 horsepower. A redesigned 4-speed automatic transmission remained standard. A new Quadra-Drive four-wheel-drive system featured progressive locking differentials, though rear-wheel drive remained standard.
