But the painted fenders should be able to be black painted over with a textured paint/rhino liner or something without issue I would think??The painted fender (unpainted when purchased) and non-painted fenders are different part numbers and material/finish. I don not think the non-painted fenders with the ruffer texture will hold paint without peeling.
Body coloured fenders, black roof.Hi guys, new here. I’m trying to decide between firecracker red and ocean blue but that’s another topic for another thread.
I’m first trying to decide between body colored fenders and top or standard black. Are there benefits to one over the other? Do you guys think one looks better than the other? Does one age better than another? I’m so indecisive lol. Thanks for your input.
It looks as if with this redesign. The body colored fenders is the intended look for the JL, hence the black lip. A throwback to the CJ. It looks greatI had the black plastic fender flares on my last 3 JK's and can honestly say while that while they may not show scratches like a painted surface will, they are a bear to maintain and keep looking nice. If you get wax on them, they look like crap. If you are not constantly maintaining them with 303, Mothers back to black or any number of other products on the market to designated to keep black plastic looking good they will fade to grey and look like crap.
When ordering my JL I opted for the painted flares so I didn't have to deal with the same headaches I did with my JK's. Besides the lip on the edge gives a bit of contrast unlike what they had previously with the color matched fenders on the JK.
