My 07 Harley Edition had the painted bumpers and it got really pitted after a few years which those little pits then turned into rust spots all over the front bumper.
With my 15 Platinum, I had the front bumper wrapped as well with the clear film. So far after 3 years it has held up perfectly and there is zero marks on it.
You do however want to make sure you clean out the insides of the bumper as it will rust from the inside out as well if you are letting salt/sand build up inside. The rear is notorious for getting snow packed up inside there from the rear tires.
You can see the film line here but you only see it because of the flash reflecting off the edge.
They make kits for the trucks but the guy I used cut his out of a huge roll and custom made it. What you find with the kits is that they don't wrap around to the inside of the bumper stopping 1/8"-1/4" from each edge leaving some exposed. I wanted 100% of the front face covered.
