garage and covered parking makes a huge difference with minimum fading - if left outside during the day in Texas regularly you will have fading over time - that orange energy ball is brutal
Thanks for your feedback all, I live in Ontario Canada, would the winter salt accelerate the fading of black fenders in that case?Fading is a function of location, if the Jeep is garaged and care of the vehicle. It's similar to a convertible top. I have a Boxster that I bought new in 2001 and the top is still almost perfect and the rear plastic window is very clear. The reason, the car has always been garaged, never driven in the winter and only has 39K miles on the clock, plus I live in New England. Everything fades in the sun given enough exposure. If your jeep is going to live out-of-doors in AZ or FL your going to need extra protection for the plastic and the paint.
You live in the Toronto vicinity. You must see dozens of Wranglers every day. Have you noticed significant cosmetic issues with the black flares, because I haven't here in Winnipeg.Thanks for your feedback all, I live in Ontario Canada, would the winter salt accelerate the fading of black fenders in that case?
If you're gonna get the painted fenders on a Rubicon, I'd highly recommend getting some kind of protection for the rears. KO2s toss rocks and even on a simple trail run, you can kiss that paint goodbye.Hi all.
I am tying to make up my mind wether to go with body color JL fenders or Black for my rubicon. ? Any pros or cons? Does the black fender color fade with time ?
I like the rugged look of the black fender, I just don’t want to have them fade from the sun down the road.
Any Feedback is appreciated.
