I thought about wrapping it after I ordered it and I came to the same conclusion as yourself. I'll be wrapping mine in Olive green and black.
If anyone manages to figure out what quantity of wrap would do the whole truck, would you share?

Neat idea Clay, but wrap material needs flexibility and reflective tape doesn't have that. One possible exception is their Flexible Engineer Grade, but I think all their tapes have a maximum width of about six inches. But on flat surfaces you could use one of their tapes for accents and, as you say, definitely stand out at night from a long way off.
3M makes some strong stuff but it's pricey

Here it is. You can all be jealous that I figured out the best look first. Don't copy me.

Bonus points if you figured out I'm kidding!

Since these are all flat panels, you'd save a ton of money just ordering bulk materials and applying it yourself. There's no reason to pay the prices that are linked by the OP for such a simple vehicle body.
Where does one get this material? Total wrap-neophyte here.

If I end up deciding to go the wrap route I'll have to decide between a retina-searing yellow and that rusty metal look. A rust wrap would really give off that post-apocalyptic vibe.

Based on this discussion, no wrap for me. But I do need my company name and logo on sides. What is best? Paint, vinyl, epoxy paint, magnetic? Do magnetic even work on stainless? Other choices?

I think the CT would look awesome in a Carrera White Marble Wrap.

Stainless steel is not magnetic.

I like going with the rusted accents and subtle look more like a ship in the Star Wars universe than a bunch of logos on it. It will stay stock for a while, until I start seeing them everywhere. Then, I will start to customize it.

The sign should be made by q professional, and vehicle-sign companies would know how to adhere their product to a non-magnetic surface.
