I think I’ll go with the unpainted. Seems there are pros and cons for both but I am off the pavement a lot and think they will not show the pits as badly. Thanks to everyone for weighing in!Yeah, it's just one of those Wrangler things. A bottle of Back to Black works nicely, though. I'm hoping they've got some better material being used for the JL fenders, but it ain't the end of the world if they need that little extra care. Besides, there's a sense of therapy when one washes and details a Jeep, you know?
