    I've had a few Wrangler's over the years.. With the black fender flares / fenders you are wise to keep them clean. If you leave bird chitt, mud, wild berries, tree sap, road paint, tar, etc., on to long, these items will stain the black flare/fender and you will play hell trying to remove the stain.... that's even if you can get it off.

    So, clean off any of the above right away, use a UV protector, go easy with to no use of heat gun . Also, if possible park in the shade as much as possible.

    As for me, I'm done with black and only go painted now a days.

    I’ve used Adams VR for 7 years on black trim. It’s inexpensive, makes the parts look like you just bought them. Here’s link: https://adamspolishes.com/shop/exterior/adam-s-super-vrt-tire-trim-dressing.html

    I have never had it haze. It does need to be reapplied fairly often.

    303 doesn't affect your paint or anything is some overspray gets on it, does it?

    No. You could technically apply it to the paint for uv protection of you wanted to.

    Ok everyone here has convinced me to get the 303 for my JL fenders (and other interior/exterior vinyls). But how about my soft top? Can the 303 be used on soft top? (I have premium top)

    I have been using 303 on my Miata soft top for over 10 years and it's perfect. (garage kept)
    Be sure to coat the stitching well too.
