A chair for every butt. That's kind of how I look at this vehicle with painted bumpers. Someone out there will buy it and think its fantastic. Just not my choice.

This is the Jay Leno of jeeps...that chin.

That being said, if the jeep itself was matte army green with an aftermarket bumper worth of mention, i wouldn't mind a match-painted bumper as much.

As a serious off-roader I would never paint my bumper, beside it looks like crap

What are those weird "filler" pieces between the bumper and wheel? Those are atrocious! I've never seen them before!

Might as well paint the hood latches and door handles too. I don’t even like the body color fenders.

Same here. What the heck are they? They look terrible. What are their purpose?

I saw this today while browsing through some 2020 JLU inventory. This has to be one of the dumbest looking “option” on a Wrangler. I’m guessing this dealer took the liberty of painting the bumper to match the body color and selling it as an “option” upgrade.

That’s definitely not a good look.

I've read in other threads those "filler pieces" on the 2020's were added by FCA to improve gas mileage by increasing aerodynamics. They will just end up in a landfill after the first lift or tire size upgrade!!!

I have seen the JK ARB front and rear bumper paint matched to the lime green and it looked good. The stock plastic bumpers does make it look like the Liberty. Not a bad concept just very poor execution.

Are you guy referring to the filler pieces between the front bumper & the fenders?
They have been on all the US JL Sports since 2018.

The Rubicon & Saharas dont have them.

Many hate them.
I dont mind them and have not bothered to remove them.
