For my 2000 TJ, which was heavily grayed, I have used Mothers Back to Black, and have been happy with it.
I have also used Mothers back to black on my previous JK and it worked great. A heat gun also works! But - because we are in Arizona, they will eventually fade with this heat.

I actually wanted black fenders, but knowing I was coming to AZ, and there were no good tube fenders yet I went with painted. The black trim around the fenders of my 2017 Grand Cherokee faded bad after a year, so I did not want to deal with that on the JLUR. (However there is still some black that will fade on the painted ones too).
