After having an unpainted top and fenders, I welcome the painted ones. Paint is about 10 times easier to clean nasty mud off of. Both paint and the plastic show pinstripes the same in my experience. Only seeing pros with the paint.Also for everyone complaining about the body colored top and fenders again that's a personal preference but I think Jeep did it because they wanted to make a budget G wagon. Same way those all have painted fenders and tops.
Another thing I'm assuming if you hate you could change out yourself.
