How’s the rear fender and panel with rock chips?
It’s got a few but not too many - the factory applied 3M catches most of it. That said I will likely have a shop repair them properly (my touch ups never seem to match even though using the correct Mopar paint stick) then get them fully 3M’d. Just the fenders that seem to catch rocks.

I’m with you. I have black trim on my 2dr

i have the black trim on my Bikini Rubi and they look almost sand blasted from the rocks. I’ve been keeping up with some touch ups on the rear panel but it just is what it is. I have from splash guards as well. The joys of living on country dirt roads.

I find that the mopar high performance rock rails help reduce the blasting but also note they’re great at catching rocks between themselves and the bodywork so I can foresee 3M along the rockers fairly soon.

Yes and no, the mermaid themes I'm going :o. First time I have gone with a loud color, I really wanted Pumpkin Orange but that was not available for a base sport for 2020. I did not want any extra electronics. I love the Bikini Pearl in the sun. I do wish I got a Sting Gray at times when I see some of the other bikini pearls with some of their themes, along with the fact the community members are like any sisters? Like the color is exclusive to them has me shaking my head.

Earlier this Year I test drove a Sport S Unlimited. Took it home for my wife to look at. She liked the color but said it was a girls color and I needed something else. So that is what I did, I purchased something else. Personally I liked the color but, my wife knows me pretty well. I may have gotten tired of that color to soon.

The Bikini was my next choice after Hella.

But it was IMPOSSIBLE to find.

And who doesn't love something fun wrapped in Bikini?

Really, I had my base level 2019 Bikini JLUS for 15 months and never got tired of the color. I still loved it. I replaced it with a well equipped 2021 JLUS in Sting Gray JLUS and love this one as well!

I don’t regret it at all. I didn’t like any of the colors available and was going to go Ocean Blue, because I liked it the best of what was available. When BP came out, I considered it and eventually chose it because I live in red rock country in Arizona, and it looks great out here. I get compliments on it all the time (big deal) but dayum the chicks dig it!

The rear quarter wast too high for stripes on the back. And the hood decal didn't look quite as good on the cowl part of the hood.
