Wouldn't it be pores ? I'd be worried about mud getting deep in it and not being able to wash it out of the little dimples.

When I first bought my jeep someone had textured the front bumper. I couldn't get the dirt out of it. The lineX I seen at a shop seemed almost like sand paper? Could just be the type I was looking at?

The bottom mount of the tube bender stand, as well as a last minute gusset added to strengthen a friend's skid plate mount.

Playing around with one of them JK jeeps. Not full flex, but enough for us to be confident the new track bar with new mounts don't hit anything. And trimming the front bumper. Yes, there's metal under there when you take the plastic off

The 37" MTR tires make me wish I had them on my TJ Makes the 35s look small, haha
