How to get bumpers clean?

Well I have a 2010 JK Sahara, and after quite a bit of backwoods driving I have still yet to find a product to clean the black plastic bumpers. I clean and clean and yet you still see mud splatter. Ive tried regular soap, mothers back to black, and armor all.

What do you guys use to clean the bumpers?

Big Thanks!

Nooo! Not any time soon. No money for that right now. Im doing 3 year 0% finacning so my payment SUCK! I have two other cars also to insure and such. For now this thing stays as is. Nothing major.

Just wish I could clean it!

Try some Turtle Wax Ice. It will fade, but it'll look like new for a week.

I think the problem is that nobody has a stock bumper! LMAO!

I was thinking ice, as I have every detail product known to man, but was hoping there was something else!

Those MOPAR Bumpers are looking better and better with every trip to quadratec's site

I swapped out for the Mopar bumpers within the first month of ownership only because I believe Jeeps should not have plastic bumoers. The grill I can deal with, but the bumpers...no way.

The only thing I didn't think of is that I'm liking the stubby bumper. I may switch out to the RR bumper next spring.

Im liking the "look" of the Mopar rock crawler (something like that I dont remember the name). Keeps factory fogs, and with a hoop I can add some aux daylighters or such.

That's what I'm running now. It's a great bumper, easy to install, beefy. A couple of the guys on here modded out the bumper by removing the crush cans and plastic covers and replaced the tow hooks with d rings. If I don't go with the stubby bumper, I want to try that mod out. I have the bumper with the winch cut out, but have the plastic winch delete plate on it until I get my winch, but that's a whole other story.

The one con I noticed withe the bumper is that the powder coating is a bit flimsy on the welds. I picked up a rust inhibitor at pepboys and put dabs over the welded sections and it looks pretty good. I'lll have to see what it looks like after my first winter.

Just the covers on the crush cans. Like I said, I'm thinking of cutting them off and puting D ring shackle mounts in it's place, unless I just go ahead and get a stubby bumper.
