How did you get the rubicon hood?
I made it part of the deal at the time of order. It wasn't available as a factory installed option so they ordered the hood and all component parts and painted it to match. I didn't want the vehicle's paint blended or anywhere near the paint shop (bad experience years ago with overspray) so a test panel was sprayed to confirm color before spraying the hood. Rice JEEP in Knoxville did an amazing job. It's looks OEM and I couldn't be any happier!

That’s annoying but not permanent. I do have the foam tubing in there. I’m talking about rocks chipping the fender itself during off roading. $100 for a clear bra on the rear fenders on day 1 would have be a smart idea for any painted fenders.
Where do you get that clear bra? Is it something I can order and do myself?

I took delivery of my JLU on Friday and it's at the shop wrapping the fenders and door handles right now. Worth it based on all my JK friends who ran white fenders complaining of rock chips.

Are you doing clear wrap and are you in California or outside of California what’s the cost if you don’t mind me asking

2019 Bright White JLUR
Man I really like the matching top and fenders on the Bright White. I'll be ordering a Bright White JLUR in a few months and keep going back and forth on the color matching top. I know I won't spend the money on painted fenders because I planned on replacing them with steel fenders that are either powder coated or painted to match. But I don't know if I want to spend the extra $1000 on painted top and worry about more scratches from trees and bushes when I'm offroading.

My opinion, it’s highly unlikely you will really really are you scratching the top of that often and on top of that if you like heat so be it go with black, but in the long run would be much cooler and it will look nicer. Black will always show way more dents dings and scratches then a painted white top, he will see nowhere as many dings dents or scratches on a white painted top then a black top

I found and order Black Rubicon decals off Ebay...I painted the Jeep badge black....
It came with the dual top option.
I have not done exhaust or cold air intake.....been waiting on reviews....I have had cold air intakes on my past JKs and TJs....but maybe in the future either a turbo or super charger!!!!
Haven't done any mods in last couple months....paying of credit cards first only to rack up again...:clap::like:

Just coming in on the tail end of this thread, but I don't agree with this at all. In fact, I think the black top would show less dings. Scratches are probably a different story. But something that could significantly scratch a white top will most likely not do much of anything to a black top besides a light mark. It's not a painted texture.

To the OP, I would go black top and fenders for contrast. Otherwise, it starts to look just like another SUV with a painted top...especially white.

All that said, it's just my opinion, and you need to go with what YOU want.

Nice Jeep. I have the same one also. What Grills and fog lights did you add. I like that set up.
I went with the Smitty built X20 winch, mopar grill guard and Mopar 7 inch off-road LED’s and they are bad ass.

Thanks. Yea I’m not crazy about red. Lol. I used a black satin spray paint from Home Depot. I ordered new badging and painted them. The front tow hooks I replaced with black ones. JK front tow hooks are same as JL. I painted the rear tow hook bc could not find a black one. The rear tow hook is different from JK.
