I think it looks fine with the black fenders. Painting them would be nice but they'd have to match the rest of the yellow perfectly. But it's totally up to you. If I painted them yellow I'd want them to match 100%. And no to bedliner. My opinion, paint them and the hinges just make sure it's done right.

If you are very particular, I would look into the added weight of the bedliner, but I think the consensus on the last few posts is that the bedliner looks rugged/clean at the same time. I'm even considering it on my own rig

What are your plans for the Jeep? Trying to get it in reasoably tip-top shape in order to sell it? Or is it a keeper for you?

If you're keeping it, do whatever your heart desires, it's your heep! If you're planning on moving it, I agree with folks about it needing more black to tie in the fenders, but I'm personally not a fan of overdoing the bedliner. Keep in mind that the Jeep looks pretty stock, so more than likely your buyer will be a non-offroader, they may not understand our affinity for bedliner all over our Jeeps. Either install black corner guards or roll on a little liner in a shape similar to a corner guard and call it good. With all respect to magnetman, doing the whole body in yellow-over-black doesn't look good at all.

Did you paint the wheels? I have the Solar Yellow and I am thinking of painting the wheels black. My flares are currently gray, which I plan on painting in the Spring.
