Thanks for all the comments all. Sorry I haven't got back sooner. I got it here:
Skinomi TechSkin - Apple iPad 2 Carbon Fiber Skin Protector
The price recently went up. When I ordered it, it was $29.99 with Free Shipping. Order process was super smooth.
As for actually putting it on, the backside (what you saw in the picture) is so much easier than the clear front. I really hope the front clears up. I work my butt off trying to get all of the bubbles out and still had a couple after a lot of time using the squeegee they give you.
Anyways, for the back, it is a giant sticker and to get it around the corners use a blowdryer on warm / low settings to slightly heat the edges so they fold over. The hardest part was lining the Apple logo up right, while making sure the camera lens had nothing in front of it.
I have NOT tried it with the Smart Cover yet. I don't see why it wouldn't work, but I'll try it when I get home and report back.
I just ordered the ICARBON front and rear carbon fiber I like it better than the skinomi it covers more area and no corner cutouts you don't get a front screen protecter but I don't use one anyways called them and talked they were really friendly and helpful but you do get the carbon for the front to that goes around the bezel and if you domlay it on the front it just raises it enough where the screen wouldn't touch, but who would lay it on the screen anyways right.
$30 for a sticker? No thanks. I bet you can get them on Ebay for $5 next month.
I buy the front protectors 6 for $3.
No rear snap on for me I always keep my iPad in it's case while I use it
it is under the black antenna cover at the top of the back panel.

Then it may have been the 3g?
This has already been tested on many 3g models and it doesn't impact anything whatsoever. Think about it if a thick leather case doesn't impact it why would a sticker. I just installed mine last night from Phantomskinz.com. As far as I'm concerned it's the best coverage of them all. It's the only one that does a full wraparound of the speaker grille. I will try to get up pics later on.
Also as for the price, I always say you get what you pay for. The screen protector from Phantomskinz is $20 but is also the best screen protector there is that I know of. I've tested most all of them over the years.
